Rule for link to vendors?

What are the rules for posting a link to a vendor, including eBay vendors, to which I have no relationship?

I had an eBay vendor link removed, one where I said I'd received good service. I'm not whining, just want to know the right way to do things next time. If I can't link, can I name the vendor?

"Older people who are reasonable, good-tempered, and gracious will bear aging well. Those who are mean-spirited and irritable will be unhappy at every period of their lives.

"Let each of use properly whatever strengths he has and strive to use them well. If he does this, he will never find himself lacking."

Pretty sure eBay links are outlawed altogether here.

Ebay links are part of the marketplace rules. The idea is to prevent people from putting things on ebay and referring to them here. I believe the trend to eliminate all ebay links is either an erroneous interpretation or an unexplained change in policy. Links I've posted for the last place to find Michelin Pilot Road tires and the only place I know of to get plug and play LED friendly flashers for our bikes are valuable to the membership and won't infringe on anyone or benefit me for example.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s
See https://www.stromtrooper.com/general-...nicknames.html

I generally remove links to craigslist/ebay/outside vendors that have no connection to this forum for a few reasons:

They don't have any accountability to anyone on this forum. The possibility of getting ripped off is much more likely with someone that has no affiliation.

Vendors that want to post anywhere in this forum needs to be cleared first. Your referral bypasses that requirement.

generally, people can find thing on e-bay by themselves.

etc...
