Many reasons, including:

1) We would be over-run with them. Despite the ban we still have to delete dozens of posts per day from link spammers and self-advertisers. If we allowed this the real information would be buried deep below a sea of worthless junque.

2) The forum is intended to support the exchange of information. That is its mission. There are many other forums that allow link/advertising posts, which are suitable for that purpose.
