Can I just remind people that the advertising of commercial products is not allowed on this site.

I have just remove a post from China blatantly advertising models of 1:10 scale bikes. The poster even says, "My company sells over 40 of these"

It is OK for members who have posted on the forum more than 10 times to sell the odd kit but it is not Ok for people to use this forum to promote, advertise and sell commercially.

Can I refer people to the rules and in particular section 5 and 8

In the last week alone, a few cases like this have had to be removed. If you are not sure PM a Moderator or John to clarify BEFORE you post an advertisement or commercial site. Without explicit permission to do so, all commercial advertising will be removed. It is unlikely that permission will be granted but may be in special circumstances

CHECK BEFORE YOU POST PLEASE

I'm confused what constitutes advertising surely if I post a review on something that is an advert

Depends if the review is for something you are selling.
