    Moderator note:
    C'mon ... put a little effort into it next time! We're cracking down on low-content "look at this site!" URL-only threads, because some members post a LOT of them, presumably to boost their post count.

    2.6 Post padding / low content posts
    Post padding should be avoided. Post padding is making a post with no real purpose or content, just to increase post count stats. Post padding includes:
    [snip]
    * A URL alone, with little or no commentary.
    [snip]

    Thread closed. The next will be deleted.
