Mods: I fully understand that you don’t have the time or patience to vet every link before posting. You do plenty for free already. I’m wondering if you could make the following exceptions to the no-links policy to make the Torah-related threads easier to follow and participate in:
1- hebrewbooks.org (You usually allow them already anyway. They are 100% indespensible if you happen not to be in a Beis Medrash while posting online)
2- mechon-mamre.org — tanach, Mishnah, Tosefta, Bavli, Yerushalmi and Mishneh Torah. They don’t have tzuras hadaf, but their search works better than hebrewbooks which makes them useful for a quick lookup.
3- Revach.net — audio shiurim library, mostly hashkafa (you already allow lots of links from them)
4- yutorah.org — a much larger audio shiurim library that covers many, many Torah topics.
They usually let Hebrewbooks through.
A white list sounds like a good idea. I’d also recommend torah.org, aish.com, and simpletoremember.com to be added to that list.
Itche – Here is exactly where the problem starts. Everyone thinks their links are good. No?
