I know that your frustration is directed at Canon, not Stephen. But, if you think the policy is too rigid, then you are taking too shallow of a view of the reasons for it. As I have pointed out many times before, the basic intent of the policy is to prevent the posting of malicious links.
If you have a better idea on how to prevent the posting of malicious links, let's hear it. The alternative is for every post to go into a queue, where it sits in limbo so that a moderator can approve it, which let's the post appear on the forum.

It is Canon's web site. They don't have to even offer one. They can run it however they see fit. If it were me, I would not allow third party non-Canon stuff to be mentioned at all.
Why in the world would Canon endure the cost to promote other often damaging accessories?

Canon DOES make a Canon 77d. I have one and the power battery grips i order do not fit. what is the deal??
Sounds like your dealer is not a reputable one. I would report them to Canon, but not here in the forums.
I suggest that you send it all back for a refund, and buy a camera from an actual Canon authorized dealer.
BTW, if you have read through this thread, then you will know that Canon does not make a battery grip for the 77D or T7i, and most likely does not plan on doing so. It should have been announced when the camera was initially announced.
