I looked over the site--nice work, Pug, as always--and I was reminded of 
a point of confusion from many years ago (man, when I go off on a 
tangent I...oh, wait, that's another tangent).

I remember once--way back when I was a landed baron a billion miles from 
here--we had a little temporary financial difficulty with our 
newsletter.  Our chronicler--an enterprising youngster--decided to take 
matters into her own hands.  She arranged for the local Tandy Leather 
store to run an ad with us.  Of course, the Kingdom Chronicler 
immediately informed us that she was *not* allowed to do that.  We found 
other ways to address our problem, but I had intended to look into that 
bizarre regulation when time allowed.  Then I forgot.

Now, Pug's publication of the Virtual Scribe's handbook tells me:

Since paid and non-paid advertisements are not allowed, direct links to 
merchants, companies, etc., are not permitted. A careful inspection of 
websites requested to be linked up should be made to help ensure that 
they are not a merchant nor attempting to avoid this limitation in any 

Well, I thought, I wonder if this is an outgrowth of the same old rule? 
So I checked the Ansteorra Kingdom Chronicler's Handbook and found this:
