Information.svg Please do not add inappropriate external links to Wikipedia. Wikipedia is not a collection of links, nor should it be used for advertising or promotion. Inappropriate links include (but are not limited to) links to personal web sites, links to web sites with which you are affiliated, and links that attract visitors to a web site or promote a product. See the external links guideline and spam guideline for further explanations. Since Wikipedia uses nofollow tags, external links do not alter search engine rankings. If you feel the link should be added to the article, please discuss it on the article's talk page rather than re-adding it. Thank you. If you continue adding that domain across many wikis it will be blacklisted.  — Mike.lifeguard | @en.wb 16:09, 2 October 2008 (UTC)

A link to a non-for-profit magazine which offers a (very rare) sample of a minority language is NOT spam. You should check before accusing people. Shame on you. --Dakrismeno (talk) 16:58, 2 October 2008 (UTC)
That website is one of the very few resources where people can go to see what Lombard looks and sounds like. That seems to be a good reason for adding it to wikis that report information about the Lombard language (and which do not yet have extrnal links that show examples of the language in a real-life setting). What happened to assuming good faith? --Dakrismeno (talk) 16:40, 2 October 2008 (UTC)
I'm afraid pushing a link across many wikis is inappropriate regardless of it's content, per WP:SPAMMER. Please ensure links you add conform to WP:EL/WP:RS, and you gain consensus on the article's talk page before adding that link again. Furthermore, I am assuming that you are attempting to improve the encyclopedia, but are simply going about it the wrong way. I'll also assume that you're following AGF.  — Mike.lifeguard | @en.wb 17:52, 2 October 2008 (UTC)
