In the big scheme of things, this really doesn't matter, does it. We're all guilty of some self-promotion in some ways.

I think you're probably right to leave it up to each person to decide for themselves really...

I find it refreshing that we can disagree politely. As for considering the info "news," well, I don't think that I said that it was. I agree -- this was/is a marketing thing. But it was no less or more dishonest than lots of the affiliate stuff that I see. In this case, at least, there's some useful information at the website in question.
It just seems like some folks jumped on an attack bandwagon, thereby giving the whole mess a bigger link bang.
As for "not being upset," um, I'm certainly not upset, but the absence of anger/upsetness doesn't necessarily (and completely does not, in this case) imply delight. Put me down in the uncomfortably neutral category on this one.
Happy Holidays!

Jimmy, if you're reading, remove me from the list as well. I don't need to be on a list to know my writing is worthy of being read....

After reading the email snippet, I agree wholeheartedly with your assessment

P.S. If you would like to have a badge, I have a new one on my site (smile)

You can link to the site without giving the site any "google juice." When you write your link add this snippet at the end: rel="no follow" so it would look like this (remove spaces on either side of the = signs):

(less than)a href = "url.to.link.to" rel = "no follow"(greater than)linked text(less than)/a(greater than)
