    To what extent are they prohibited in UO?

    Are average players allowed to talk about it in game?

    Are the only people breaking the rules the scripters?

    Prohibited in game, else you would invite unlimited spamming.
    You are probably safe to talk about it ... probably.. depends if someone reports it and on the luch of the gm who checks it.
    See it more as a guideline....

    Rules EA would have to enforce ...

    My notes from the 2008 Town Hall Meeting in Chicago (and to my knowledge, nothing has changed):

    I've hunted and can't find the thread, but I also recall a conversation whereby Jeremy (community person at the time) explained that posting URL's in the game (in books, on parrot names, etc) was not allowed unless the web site was an official UO Fan Site (as defined here: ORIGIN - Ultima Online - Main).

    I've never seen anything that states that players can't talk about cash transactions in-game, since cash transactions aren't illegal. The sketchy part is that most of the sites that offer items/gold for sale for cash also may be using software/scripts that violate the UO terms of service.

    I'd conclude that you're safe to talk about cash transactions, but should be careful discussing the particulars of sites that may be scripting and therefore violating the terms of service.
