I'd say that we don't own the copyright in any way, so you should be free
to put your abstract up wherever you like. However, I do agree with others
that the risk to you is its public nature. You essentially give up the
blind review if you post the abstract. You many not care about that, and
indeed reviewers may "guess" who you are anyway, and/or find you online
via other kinds of keyword searches. But, reviewers may care about the
blind aspect of their review. You may also want to consider the downside
of posting an abstract that might be rejected.

So, I'd recommend following Nancy's suggestion of putting up the abstract
after acceptance/rejection. It will only be 6-8 weeks wait after the
closing date.
