Is it just me, or does anyone else here feel irked about the string of users here lately who log on, post a bunch of “projects” that are nothing but ads for their own often overpriced plan web sites, then log off without taking any real part in our community?
This commercial abuse of our hosts here makes me see red. These folks have zero interest in our community other than as a source of income.
The newest of these is one “andydachippy”, who joined Friday and promptly posted a dozen and a half “projects”, each an ad for one of his overpriced plans on his commercial web site within his first few hours here.
His was not the only such “member” I’ve noticed in the last few days, just the latest and most blatant.
I for one will, for decency’s sake if for no other, will never spend penny one with any of these abusers. I advise all my fellow LJs to do likewise.
Please understand, I am not advising such treatment for honest members of our community who do take part in our community and contribute to the richness of the LJ experience, just those whose sole interest in us is our wallets.
The soapbox is now vacant.
