Sorry. I didn't know ExpatForums views helping someone out as an example of soliciting.

The vast majority of times we get things like "PM me for more information", is normally there is financial gain in it for the solicitor. So, when this happens, we always err on the side of caution. Quite often they are MLM'ers or Real Estate/Insurance/financial/car salesmen who use this "Expat" board as their personal gold mine. We, meaning the board's hosts, moderators and most of the long time regulars don't like solicitation for personal gain here. If you want to dispense knowledge, like most of us do, for the benefit of all here on the open board, please do.

No problem. Our reputation here has even gotten us listed on the MOM's gov't website as a place to keep abreast of government policies that affect the expatriate community at large regarding employment, housing, schooling, etc.
