...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.)
