Linking to your own blog

I can't remember when this was posted, but I don't think I'm making it up. Didn't Alaina put up a message about how people shouldn't link to their own blogs by way of a signature in their posts? I thought it was a great idea because it eliminated a lot of fluff postings that were only up to promote some food blog. It seems like more and more posters are starting to link to their blogs and it's getting annoying. I love this site because of the interesting ideas that people share but I don't like clicking on a Talk topic to find it littered with self-promoters who are only contributing a frivolous statement so that they can advertise.

Is it just me? If I'm crazy, just tell me and I'll shut up.
