As there has been some interest in this site from at least one member the thread has been undeleted and the poster will be unbanned.

It's strongly recommended that new posters participate in general chess discussion for a few posts prior to posting links, as posters whose first post is a link to a non-Aus website will generally be assumed to be spammers and banned.

I agree. This thread had all the hallmarks of spam and from a purist point of view it probably was spam just not one that was financially motivated. Often I would have canned this thread without visiting the link but as I was interested I actually surfed around the website a bit too and decided it was pretty harmless and may be of interest to other members too. But I fully understand the argument for deleting the thread too given its MO.

Thanks. I apologize to have posted the link for my first visit to this forum.
I have found the url of this forum at http://www.schackportalen.nu/
I hate spam probably more than you, but there is strictly none publicity on my website. I work (the studies took me months) alone to do it and I pay about 75 euros/year for my site to be hosted. The link it too for a strictly chess subject.
I am happy to share this work wiht Australia.
