I am not spamming weblogs or anyone else.
I am not flooding anyone with irrelevant or inappropriate messages. I am not trolling or Excessive Cross-Posting. On my site I request submissions, the ones I like and that I think others will like I approve, the others I do not. I do not care if the author submitts his own stuff or a stranger. I do not are if they submit every story they write. I would care if they submitted the same story ten times a day every day, or a hundred. That would be spam. Submitting one article a day on bicycle racing to my site could be considered spam. A submission queue is not a public forum.
This article must be on topic and interesting or it would not have been voted onto the front page.
This is also not a "marketing campaign", I submitted the article here because I thought it would be appreciated. As it was voted onto the front page it must must have be appreciated. I respect the opinions of those that have read the article on RootPrompt.org and those that just do not like the article or those that feel there is to much rootprompt/mp3/whatever here. They can vote -1, fine with me. Other places can post it or not their choice.
I don't have an account on geeky, so I had to post it anonymously. So what? They like it they post it they don't they don't post it. Up to them and again a submission queue is not a public forum.
An interesting thing about geeky.org on the bottom it says copywrite the managment. It would appear that they are holding their copywrite anonymously ;-)
As for the comment by End aka JD let me define the following term:
1; regularly posts
specious arguments, flames or personal attacks to a newsgroup, discussion list, or in email for no
other purpose than to annoy someone or disrupt a discussion. Trolls are recognizable by the fact
that the have no real interest in learning about the topic at hand - they simply want to utter flame
bait. Like the ugly creatures they are named after, they exhibit no redeeming characteristics, and as
such, they are recognized as a lower form of life on the net, as in, "Oh, ignore him, he's just a troll."
If you will note his posting says nothing about the quality of the article or the subject the article was written about it says when you go around spamming and I'm sick of them it feels like a personal attack to me. It after all does not say the article is off topic or badly written. Sounds like a troll to me.
As for me this topic is now closed. As the jargon file says ...comes from mainstream "trolling", a style of fishing in which one trails bait through a
likely spot hoping for a bite.. Well I bit even though I should have ignored it, and am not going to bite anymore. As the definition of troll says that one should just ignore trolls.
