Plug your product or service as obnoxiously as you want, just keep it in this section. No charge, really, free, without strings. You don't have to provide any financial compensation to the great guys who paid to bring you this forum, pay to keep it running, and pay to promote it themselves. Really, post for free, but if you wanted to show some financial gratitude, you can do that too....
