An interesting discussion has been going on in one of my LinkedIn groups, about people who jam up discussion groups with self promotion instead of using the PROVIDED Promotions area. I’ve crossed the line in the past… we all have, but this geared to the habitual “Buy Me”s in every discussion group we see. *

Discussion vs Promotion

* since there is well defined Promotions area in every LinkedIn group, it’s going to be hard for those who disagree to argue this as First Amendment issue.

    Heh, heh, that reminds me of the time I selling my Flingerbator (TM–for just three easy payments of $19.95–CLICK HERE), and well, the Twittersphere was all ablog about them, Amazon couldn’t keep them on their shelves! DId you know it was rate #1? Then–get this (no, really–GET it!), Rosey and Piers had me on their shows, and Ellen got all “dancey,” and Al Roker is having me on next Monday.

    All over a cool item no one can live without that only cost the price a Starbucks.

    Some people’s kids.
