Permission please.

I was told I have to ask if I want to talk about the Giraffe boards.
May I?

You’re allowed to mention other boards on here all you like.

What you’re not allowed to do is things like advertising other boards and enticing others to join them, because that’s spam, plain and simple.

I thought there was a rule against talking about what people posted on other boards.

Actually, I’m going to close this.
If you’re really serious about asking for permission, it’s better suited for PM or email.
