    I think it's really inappropriate personally. Just crass.

    Like for example, I'm running a tournament in two weeks. It will be a night of rock and roll and pinball with ACDC cover band Colonel Angus and a novices only pinball tournament. Free cover charge and entry to the tournament is just $5. Plus the venue has great titles like MM, SS, TZ, Getaway, ToM and of course, ACDC.

    But I'm not advertising, just showing what it might look like if I was really thoughtless like you.

    And I wouldn't post the website of the event either, cause that's just low. But if I was a low joe, it would be: http://pinballbayarea.wordpress.com/pinball-tournament/

    But what would really take the thing over the edge would be to add a garish poster on top of all that. I'd never do that, you probably would, but not me. But just to show how inconsiderate and shameless that would be here is what a poster might look like. This is purely for educational purposes and not meant to promote any event:
