I think casual mention of companies, or other websites - ones that make money or not - is reasonable.  Specifically, in this case, I don't believe Dave is going to get rich by the free "advertising" in a tagline on eHam.  I, personally, would NOT include a URL in a tagline in my own posts to a site like eHam - I'd provide links only if it was appropriate to the immediate discussion.  But if NK7Z wants to do that - and for whatever reason - so be it.  However, there will be some who take exception to the practice and that point of view needs to be accepted as well.

Keeping this site uniquely "eHam" is about reasonableness.  Act reasonably, and be treated reasonably.  If you think you are being treated unreasonably, then you are likely acting unreasonably.  Unfortunately, unreasonable people usually cannot (or will not) see their own unreasonableness.

(You can replace reasonable with civil or any of a host of other terms)
