If we are in the business of enforcing the rules of outside websites now, then we need to go back and dig up that old post we had about Gaia and every other site people sell things from on here, where it is clearly defined in their TOS as well, that it is against their policy. Don't go suspending people for breaking one rule from some other website, and ignore the rest of it. Balance is nice.
