To the uninitiated commenters…

...who think it's OK to drop a thinly veiled (or not) pitch for their company or a full article into comments; are you high?

<Sigh> They probably aren't aware enough to click around the blog and likely won't see this post anyway, but that crap gets deleted. Just for the record. Almost four years in and we are still dealing with this.

If you've got something interesting to say (well, interesting may be a high bar...let's say "relevant but not entirely self-serving"), say it. If you are here to drum up clicks or busineess, beat it.

(Whether it's man or machine doing it, it still ticks me off a bit. Just saying.)

    relying on blogs to spread the word about one’s company is pretty ghetto

  2. HeatherLeigh says:

    I guess that’s one way to put it. I really don’t mind it being done in the right way.

  3. RJD says:

    What about those of us hanging around hoping you’ll recap Celebrity Apprentice?  We may not have anything interesting to say, but we keep lingering anyway.

  4. HeatherLeigh says:

    You know, I was kind of getting in the mood to recap again. What do you think about that?

  5. RJD says:

    One vote for Celebrity Apprentice recap!

    Wow, I’d never do that kind of thing for MY COMPANY. Even though MY COMPANY is an amazing place to work and do business with. Heather, I promise to never let you or MY COMPANY down by promoting it shamelessly. I’m glad you cleared that up. Well, guess it’s back to doing some really outstanding work at MY COMPANY!

  7. HeatherLeigh says:
