In the last 24 hours, there have been several postings from what appears to be a China-based software venture called SameShow.
I feel that these posts cross the line into pure promotion. One sign for me is the lack of any contribution to other forum threads by the posters.
I don't want to make it impossible for commercial providers of solutions to participate in the network, as I feel they can both contribute and receive good feedback from the members here. But I also have to make sure that the network doesn't become less valuable to members who end up having to sort through "ads" to get to content.
I would like to invite your comments on this matter. I will not remove the three posts above so that we have a chance to discuss this. If, however, any more get posted, I will start removing both the posts and the posters. I'm making independent contact with the posters to encourage a better understanding of the site and our need to address this.
