Why linking external pages are not allowed?

 

Have been trying to point a few external resources in my posts but can't. Related to my user account having a lower level?

We don't wanna the customer to be guided to a third-party website where there is a potential danger to be blackmailed or fished by fake support.

And we don't take responsibility for any damage or cost if being redirected by third-party websites.

We black unknown websites but allow a list of addresses we trust. We cannot include every website and identify each one of them.

 

But will consider in the future allowing third-party websites but with notifications to alert the forum users at their own caution when browsing on third-party websites.
