Oh, and as for fixing the problem, it seems like it's at least mostly fixed. I did hear from one person last night who still had tiling problems, but they were minor by comparison. The frenzy of comments on Twitter from the two previous nights was gone.
Not really an annoyance to me, it goes more to ethics in my mind. I actually agree with JimProuty, and if you were to contact the AVS site admin or one of the moderators and introduce yourself and request and are granted permission to promote your site here, I'd have absolutely no issues with you linking to your site.
As to you posting links to AVS from your site, it's your site and your decision, which really has no bearing on your actions here.
All of this is as always simply my opinion and has no real value other than what it is, just my opinion.
edited to add....
Though if you make it a habit to post "teasers" here with the intention of requiring us to read your site for "the rest of the story", that could indeed quickly become annoying.
