Default I have a question.

I notice that some people have signature lines promoting a URL address for what appears a business. Is this legal? Can I promote my website hear using a link in my signature line?

My website isn't a forum so it's okay? It's an Affiliate Program for employment.

I highly doubt it, as it's a marketing.

I'm showing off my car on my signature, but it is not up for sale purposes.

This is a good example of following the rules, I guess.

However, if someone offers me a good amount, things are different.

As outlined in the rules, since it is not a competing site, there's (currently) no issue with this.
