    He did say this line:

    "Your reply has the tone of parasitic rhetoric obviously due to a lack of professionalism "

    Click his Posts: to see his history.

    I think that line alone made me laugh hard enough to be happy he came by and spammed us. That and the fact he came here asking for help with his site, so he could come back later and spam away. Beautiful. I feel bad for him, another newbie suckered.

    Sorry to see you have such a nasty disposition. The post is not spam if you saw what the title was and opened it anyway. In this case opening the post is your decision and what you were exposed to was done by your hand not mine.

    Spam is when you recieve an unwanted ad. If the post did not support the title I would agree that it is spam. This is not the case here. The post is intended for those who are interested and want to see the details. If you opened the post voluntarily after seeing the title it is not spam. I did not force you to open the post. If you don't like the message title than don't open it. Hope this helps explain to you what spam is.

    It's sad, it's also really stupid to think people here would fall for that crap. Another site trying to make money telling people how to make money. It's not the way, it doesn't work.

    Mr. Bill, let me play to your professional side. Your post is a promotion for your site, your program.

    Which if you read the rules, requires you to post that in a certain forum, and send payment to Haiko.

    You can choose the special offers forum, or the new program announcement. Since your site is new, this would seem to be in the announcement forum.

    So it is spam.

    But I hope Haiko doesn't delete it.

    "The post is not spam if you saw what the title was and opened it anyway."

    First, SPAM is SPAM - and whether you knew it or not - your post is SPAM.

    I came into this thread to see what kind of naive person would post SPAM here, and yes, what kind of SPAM it was.

    Lastly, we don't like SPAM here. Even if you think folks who don't like it should stay out of the thread, the mere fact that it was posted is bad - period.

    You can't simply post anything here, this isn't a classified ad section.

    Chez;

    You suprised me with your civil side. This arguement I accept. I read rules all the time on the internet and was not aware, being new to this forum that there is a special place for promotions. If I had known it would be such a big deal to every e-stickler out there I would not have posted it.

    Sorry for making the impression in your mind. Thanks for letting me know the rules.
