Finally, an original tabletop item that has a beautiful design and is of the highest quality! Kei Creations has broken the mold of traditional companies that keep producing the same designs that have been coming out of China for the last 10 years. Well Done – I look forward to your new designs.
Beautiful African themed tabletop products and gifts. I have been very happy with the gifts I have bought for family and friends – a wonderful Christmas gift idea

Hello Linda. Welcome to SFN.

I hate to make the accusation, but, erm, is this spam?

It sure tastes like spam.

Why continue? Because we must. Because we have the call. Because it is nobler to fight for rationality without winning than to give up in the face of continued defeats. Because whatever true progress humanity makes is through the rationality of the occasional individual and because any one individual we may win for the cause may do more for humanity than a hundred thousand who hug their superstitions to their breast.

I'm giving SPAM to everyone on my list!

The foundation of morality is to . . . give up pretending to believe that for which there is no evidence, and repeating unintelligible propositions about things beyond the possibliities of knowledge.

Well, she didn't supply a link to anything. We shall see...

Has nothing towards any sort of discussion. No link, but the name of the company is in the message.

I vote spam. Not very effective spam, but spam nonetheless.

Spammed all over the place on travel boards. Company is based in Atlanta GA and got a $10,000 SBA loan from Bank of America in Feb 2005. One of the owners had a posting on a personal news website where he complained about getting sick from bad hamburger helper. Did he ever stop to think maybe it was bad hamburger meat? Naaah.

The web site has photos but the Shop Now and Wholesale Login links don't work. So it's a spam without a link for a website that doesn't give anyone a way to buy anything. I suspect that the spamming was done by hand as well. The bulletin board spams are all unique. One of them stated that the author had gone to Africa and not found any decent souveniers at low prices, so Kei Creations dinnerware was a real find. The other BBS denizens had a wicked good laugh over that one.

This is the worst spameptitude I've ever seen.

Made me wonder; it's certainly the clumsiest spam attempt I've seen.

As Kil said, we shall see. If spam, and that seems likely, it'll probably be the single post; Linda doesn't seem to be the garrulous type. If not and she has some other point to make, perhaps she'll return and explain.

Okay, Valiant Dancer did the homework. This is spam. Linda is history…

linda is banned for posting spam, a violation of terms.
