    I recently got my account banned for flags of spam. Of all the posts I'd written one of them contained a link to another website and 10 mins later my acct was banned. I haven't been able to get value out of the site long enough to know if those links are effective backlinks or not. Does anyone know if they are?

    This also got me thinking- many news sites require some sort of subscription for their services but they likely give preference to users who are paying them. If they wouldn't ban a paid account from dumping links in the comments of their articles, would it be worth the 8.99 subscription for the year to be able to create all that linkage? Please share if you have any ideas to climb onto the train

    Hey
    I didn't get whether you had a paid account with the ability to write for The Guardian and got banned? Or you just were commenting their articles with your links in text?

    It's too simple of a hack to be doable.

    You think the guys from the guardian are not aware the status their site has. I'm guessing they're banning spammers with or without paid accounts.

    What's their policy regarding links in the comments? They either allow it, and your site was to spammy, or they disallow it, and you post in anyway, so that's why they banned you.

    I was unable to find anything meaningful online. They probably have something in place for new users, espeically those who are free to prevent linking. But that's foolish in my opinion because they're likely to block good truthful information from being shared and cross referenced.
