Are comments like this permitted on AskUbuntu:
There is a flag for questions and answers to mark them as spam if they are promoting a product or service without clearly stating the author's affiliation, so this comment doesn't really fit into that category. Reading through the Code of Conduct, I'm not seeing anything specifically saying that a person cannot offer their services. However, this is something that is generally not seen on AskUbuntu.
My understanding is that the community helps individuals solve problems in an open and accessible manner so that people with the same question in the future will – hopefully – have a reliable and reproducible solution. Offering services, regardless of how professional the individual or organisation may be, is the opposite of open and accessible.
With this in mind, should the comment be flagged as "Something Else" with the gist of this Meta question? Or are we permitted to offer professional services to people with technical problems?
