We don't want to jeopardise out charity status by promoting commercial activities. A rule helps prevent that. A community vote help establish the rule.
Just sayin...

It has been suggested to have a "no advertising" policy on all of our mailing lists.  So then the question is "what is advertising?"  Any commercial activity such as training, consulting services, or paid conferences. These activities have to be reviewed and handled by OWASP HQ before posting them to the mailing lists.
