Just as a friendly note: I totally believed it was that a picture was previewed that you removed the link, not that the link itself was dodgy. Maybe I'm daft, but I did not get it from your red-text replacement language in the OP. Sorry. Anyway, I can't speak for Smon, but my guess is he reposted the link in good-faith.No. The NSFW tag for a legit gaming product is good enough, from the owner’s own words.
The point was that reposting the link after it had been removed was...risky. But the boss is letting it pass.
And what about my question - is there any way to have the link in the OP? I mean, if it is okay to have it at all? After all, it's only in the OP it does any good. Maybe within spoiler tags like this:
