(The following is somewhat of a rant-fest. Proceed with caution.)
A recent commenter has emerged here on ChurchCrunch that is an obviously-strategic spammer of sorts, dropping comments that are contextually accurate but adding her marketing spin and links to various multi-level-marketing sites.
This couldn’t be more lame.
I’m pretty sick of it and have decided to post about it. You’ll find no links to her properties as I desire to give her no link-juice whatsoever nor do I endorse at all this particular person, their product, service, or whatever she’s trying to sell.
You’ve probably seen a billion sites like the one site above. Below you’ll see the same thing except that she’s added “Ministry Marketing” to it:
I spent more time than I should have browsing through her list of sites claiming amazing products (some which are terrible and where the technology is so far behind) and some that have been created by WP-Robot, which is an automated blogging software application using WordPress that is pretty much the worst product ever conceived.
Essentially if you use that product (and other one’s like it) you lose all credibility online.
I hate multi-level-marketing. I hate get rich quick schemes. I hate it when people promote things that distort the Word of God. I hate the health and wealth Gospel, which is no Gospel at all. And I hate it when people ignorantly think that adding “Ministry” to something obviously lame makes it instantly ok and legitimate.
Now, I won’t delete your comments because I’m not about censorship, but please note that your spammy comments aren’t adding to the conversation; they’re polluting it.
