"Sign up to Stock Performer and see how we can help you make more money. The first month is completely free!"

So, basically, Spam.

So, basically, you are in a market to get paid for your content being used in advertising and promotion but you consider any kind of advertising and promotion as "spam"? Well, smart guy.

Let me explain my comment. There are places where I expect to see marketing and promotions, others, such as a forum to offer support and advice to people who have similar interests and aims, where I do not expect to see it. My particular issue with this bit of marketing was that it seemed to fall within the support and advice remit, but the sting in the tail was that it was actually marketing. Is my dissatisfaction that hard to understand, and why be so aggressive?

For me personally it is hard to follow. It is a solution to a problem (the changes in the view counter at iStock has been discussed several times around here, I think) with absolutely free tools available to anyone.

It just comes as part of a blog belonging to a site that also offers a paid solution to another problem. I don't see how that differs from using MicroStockGroup as a forum platform for exchanging information, despite it being full of advertisements and referral links.

And I don't think anyone showing a free solution to a problem that some people (maybe not you) might appreciate deserves a dismissing comment as the first and only response.
