Yeah, posting links becomes a gray area because in this instance, for example, the link wasn't to a product or hair transplant surgeon, but it's funny to see how internet advertising still comes into play. For example, nearly all sites associated with images of celebrities have sponsors who post advertisements on the sides of the blogging/image portion of the site.

On successful sites, many of these ads are based upon browsing tracking, meaning that the ad displayed when you visit the page is catered toward your internet history. If you spend a lot of time researching and discussing hair loss and hair restoration, these ads will be catered toward hair restoration products and services (for example, every time I click on a link or go to a site, all the banner and side ads are for big hair transplant chains) that we have not reviewed and found effective. This means that a link from our site is still leading to a product or service that we've neither reviewed or endorse as safe/effective.

I've discussed copying and pasting things with Bill in the past, and in most instances, it's always been fine and left unaltered.

Hope this helps!
