since i been on AF i've noticed a few recurring ad spammers and bots and the like, and it raised a question in my mind;
Is this kind of marketing not counter-productive?
When you see a bunch of video torrent links in the art forum, or someone its trying to sell you their loops or card game or costumes or carpet cleaning services in vancouver, does this not immediatley raise the "REJECT" response in your consciousness?
By using bots, and fake user accounts on forums to advertise your commercial product, are you not harming its rep, and therefore effecting your sales negativeley?
just thinking like, but i dont know. what do you lot think?
