Lounge subforum or not, it's not a great plan to start a new thread with a link and no explanatory text whatsoever. What is this about?

Ah, so it's spam- you want people to click on something they know nothing about.

Nothing to do with that.

It is polite to give people an indication of what is at the end of a link before they click on it.

I can in theory agree with that. In practice there are a number of ways to discover the target site without clicking on the link. One of them is googling the link :-)

Nonetheless, it is polite to do so. It doesn't require them to use google, for instance.
