    Recommendations by new members - discouraged

    I don't see any point in adding to the rules about this as the vast majority of established members are already playing by the 'unwritten rule'. Recommendations for (or against) any product or service are useful and welcomed. However, if you're new to EP and we don't know anything or very much about you, then recommendations are discouraged. If we don't know you, then why should we be influenced by your recommendation? Allowing recommendations from newbies could encourage shill reviews and other undesirable posts. Therefore, could new members please hold off giving recommendations before they're established here?
