I feel the spammer stuff. Constantly getting inboxed from people overseas for my limo business, [promotional URL removed] it's ridiculous and borders on unbearable at times. On rare occasion they'll actually call our business number (before getting immediately shot down by our receptionist). But still... I'm not sure why Google doesn't block most of them for spam.

The same thing happens in forums like these, where people post specious content designed to promote their businesses — or their clients' businesses. Of course, the body of the post always contains a link to that business, just like this one. Surprise, surprise.

That's a perfect example you posted. I've allowed it to remain, without the link, as an example of how NOT to use forums for deceptive promotion.
