Well Said, Mary.

I appreciate you!

Hopefully, those who are most blatant will get a clue.

You can, if you think you can. You are somebody, cause God don't make no junk!

Hi, Mary,

Let me repeat a little of what I posted to Kenneths forum but which seems to have received little attention.

There are 'so-called' gurus out there who tell people that the way to grow the status of their web sites is to get as many back links as possible.

How do you do this?

Simple. You post to forums and blogs!

Not only do they preach this, they sell software which will harvest forum and blog urls and automatically post to them or set them up so that it is very simple to ciopy and paste your ad and post manually (at the click of a mouse!).

How many times to you see ads offering to post your advert to 90 million 0r even 2.7 billion web sites?

"Blast your ads!", they say. "Buy my blog blaster", "buy my forum blaster" or "buy my ad blaster" and spam to your hearts' content - except they tell you you are not spamming! It is not you that is sending the spam but their secure servers!

With this constant exposure to this sort of advertising, is it any wonder that some Adland members cannot see the wrong in what they are doing? If roogoo guru says that's the way to do it, why would anybody complain?

They must be talking about someone else!

You have chosen a great topic, Mary 

I don't believe it would matter how often you told some people not to do it, they would anyway. 

Whether because they haven't gotten the message that its not the thing to do

or whether they think its alright

or whether they just don't care

or whether they have dollar signs blocking their view ...

unfortunately, it isn't likely to stop ...

so I like most others delete and move on!
