This has been explained countless times before. We have a no self promotion rule in Touch Arcade. Why? Because prior to the rule there was very little discussion that actually took place here and instead someone would post a link to a new game, and the entire first page would just be people linking their "review blogs".
We usually edit out links and send PM's the first couple times we notice people breaking this rule, then we step it up to infractions, then if the offenders still don't get the message, site gets filtered. While I don't know why the site in question is filtered, I know all of the filters that I've asked to be added were for very good reason.
