Advertising is expressly prohibited on the site, including use of the PM system.

No, I don't think you can.  That sounds like spam.

From the rules:


Note: the Personal message system may not be used for obscene, rude or harassing messages, or sending multiple unsolicited messages to members (this is considered spam).  If you spam by PM and we receive a complaint, you will be warned.  If you repeat the offense after being warned, your membership will be terminated permanently.

Bertie, you may also wish to notify TPTB since this member is in violation of several PBS rules.
