baani1,

Members who post a link in their very first post do not make a good impression. This place was created as a forum to discuss, not advertise. So I have removed the link. If you wanted to essentially make the same point as that article does, you could have typed it out into the thread, instead of posting a link.

Nonetheless, if this was an aberration then you are most welcome to the forums!
