Information.svg Welcome to Wikipedia. Although everyone is welcome to contribute constructively to the encyclopedia, one or more of the external links you added do not comply with our guidelines for external links and have been removed. Wikipedia is not a collection of links; nor should it be used for advertising or promotion. 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 before reinserting it. Please take a look at the welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia. Thank you. [1] --Ronz (talk) 22:07, 10 September 2008 (UTC)

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 the nofollow attribute value, its external links are disregarded by some search engines, including Google. 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. [3] --Ronz (talk) 16:55, 27 November 2008 (UTC)

October 2010[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg Please stop adding inappropriate external links to Wikipedia, as you did to Secure telephone. It is considered spamming and Wikipedia is not a vehicle for advertising or promotion. Because Wikipedia uses nofollow tags, additions of links to Wikipedia will not alter search engine rankings. If you continue spamming, you may be blocked from editing Wikipedia. Smartse (talk) 12:24, 1 October 2010 (UTC)

MAN! It's not spamming nor advertising, it's contributing to research! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Fpietrosanti (talkcontribs) 15:41, 1 October 2010
As Ronz has kind of explained below, the first problem is that you are adding links to a page which you have published which you shouldn't per our conflict of interest guidelines. Secondly, regardless of who added the link, it is not appropriate per our external link guidelines, which you have been told about before. If you wish to improve the secure telephone article, you should use your knowledge of the field to find reliable sources and then cite these in the article, rather than linking to your own website. I can answer any queries about this that you have today, but after that will be unable to for two weeks. Please be aware that if you continue to insert the link, somebody is likely to request that your account is temporarily blocked. Smartse (talk) 16:29, 1 October 2010 (UTC)
