8. Attempts to solicit funds or sell products in the name of a "good cause" are not permitted without the prior approval of the moderators.
Actually, you created an entire new topic for your specific charity ... that was pulled first of all because you did not ask permission per the forum rules.
However had you simply posted a link in this topic for instance, likely it would have been allowed to stand. In fact, your mention of this charity several times on the forum was left unedited.

Pretty judgemental and petty comment, imho. Obviously a cheap shot and an extrapulation beyond the reason/intent of the rule.
The rule is there for a reason. It does not mean that individual members, mods, or admin do not support charities in general or rescues. But the rule is fair for everyone, seek approval first. It is only courtesy to ask. Posting baseless and inaccurate accusations on the forum is quite serious and not the first time for you.
For example, every animal I have ever "adopted" is a rescue. I also happen to support numerous charities, not that this is any of your business. I am sure many other members could make the same claims.
