Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I'd say so.

I'd certainly not consider it the type of egregious mass spam that we work very hard to prevent here at LQ. Is the consensus that we don't want to allow posts like this? Seems innocuous enough to me, especially considering it's non-commercial. Thoughts?
2. The poster has not replied to either this thread, or the other thread it started, even though a reply would obviously be warranted here.
3. The poster's pattern of behavior would indicate that it registered for the express purpose of posting this. This is its third post, and, given how short its other two were, I'd say it's its first real one.
Furthermore, the account's "last activity" was about 15 minutes after posting this, which would explain #2. This indicates that its intention was to post this, and then forget about us. A poster who wanted to participate would have been back to check for replies.

I vote for "we don't want to allow posts like this." Any policy otherwise sends the message that grey-hat spam, which this is, is welcome here. Also, the point of grey-hat spamming is not to be a good citizen; it's to disguise the spam so that it stays up longer.
It's not. There's an ad before the video, and both the Youtube video and its description are themselves advertisements (as music videos are).
At the top anyone can read: "This forum is for non-technical general discussion which can include both Linux and non-Linux topics. Have fun!"
The videoclip is made with FREE SOFTWARE (Kdenlive,end format WebM, audio Ogg,...) and this is a LINUX forum... so, who have fear because of my way to try people knows free software? What is the problem?
Otherwise, the music video was also made in one of the best forest parks (Cabralís forest park) and a place of a incalculable natural value in the suburbs of Vigo (in Galicia, Spain) which actually has serious risks of being destroyed, because of the complicity of the mayor of the city, Abel Caballero, with the British corporation Eurofund. The mayor and the corporation want to convert the forest park into a commercial macroproject that they try to call Porto Cabral.
And the arguments of the supporters of this nonsense donít resist the most minimal analysis, there are deceits and lies. They hold, for instance, that there are only eucalyptuses and this theory dismounts to simple sight. Their methods are caciquiles, since they try to obviate the opinions of the majority of the people from Vigo and, especially, those of the majority of the commoners of Cabral.
We hope nobody destroy Cabral's forest park and I think showing works made with free software, talking about it and trying to save the nature is not spam, is information.
Thanks for getting back to us, CGaleda. Posting the exact same message to dozens of forums is not good behavior, but otherwise, you've put my doubts to rest. My recommendation is now that this post be allowed.
I look forward to seeing how you'll further contribute to the discussions here. Following up on your "The best Linux for home?" thread (which I assume you didn't post just to get hyperlink privileges) would be a good start.
