I think I'm going to wait for Ace to return to make a decision on your recommendation thread. Blogs are down for the time being anyway, but if you're feeling antsy, you could probably get away with just posting it. I can handle any potential backlash.
Do you mean a thread asking for recommendations or one where you write up recommendations like you've been doing in your blog? Personally I'm a proponent of allowing as much relevant content as possible, especially in the WW, but I'm wary. I can see it being viewed as advertising. Ace is still on break and I don't want to make a call on this all by myself, so give me a bit of time.
