Ths "...disapproves of and does not condone.." wording has been used in mod comments on such posts since the beginning of the year.
Here is one of many threads that that discuss this topic:
If the policy has changed, there is a LOT of MobileRead history that needs to be "moderated".
EDIT: Oh the other hand, 3G tethering details have always been banned, and such details get deleted and threads closed, unlike SO-removal...
EDIT2: Please remove your ads the "Right Way", and have amazon do it for you...
