Well, he didn't mention Kil nor this site, either.
Well, the irony was in the importance Finley places on the issue, while simultaneously giving (unnamed) Kil crap for thinking it was important enough to post about here.


Maybe. The way I read it is that he did what he should have done before, post a note about what he calls spamming. Had Kil known his problem with it, Kil might have done something different.
Just how do I introduce myself without mentioning SFN? At any freethinking forum, It's the single most relevant part of what I do and who I am! He seems to be saying that the introduction should be about how much I love his work and leave it at that. As an introduction of myself, I should leave me out of it...

Dave.....

Damn taskmaster! I'm senile, stupid and sorry-assed, you could cut me some slack!

Here's your link! I had my wife, daughter, and the kid next door help me do it!

Kil.....
Seriously, this arrogant puff-toad Finley sounds like an impossibly self-important young man who has had some success in an recherche´endeavor that only a very few people in the world would even recognize! Talk about a self-created demigod in a miniscule dictatorship invented for the sole purpose of Rolfing his monstrous ego! His "better things to do" must consist of jactitation, jerkishness and jacking off!

Kil, I marvel at your self-control. It's a wonder you haven't excoriated this insulting tin despot with a paroxysym of invective. Hell, both you guys have pulled off a difficult and admirable accomplishment - creation of an interesting and useful website. You are peers! And he's acting like a nine year old neighborhood bully king-of-the-hill. You're a master of restraint to keep your cool, Kil!

No. Reginald Finley is a good guy with a radio show and a web site, whatever its quality, that he tries to make money from.

Nothing wrong with making money in the U.S., and I doubt he gets rich from it, but Kil and @tomic and those who contribute something useful to the site don't do it for the money.

They do it to be with me, and I have better things to do than squabble about it.

I just think it's funny how many links we're willing to provide to Finley's site. Here's another one to check out. Don't miss Finley's response to the shameless self-promotion.

Uh, yeah. The guy says quite plainly:
Please visit my website http://bibledoor.no-ip.org
which seems to be a rather clear example of what he's talking about when he says "it has been a long standing policy of mine to delete a first time poster's post when they advertise or spam or represent another website explicitly. First time posters may not mean to spam but that is exactly what they are doing. If I haven't heard of you or your organization, it is even more likely that I'll assume you're spamming. I truly don't care how popular you think your site is. It's still spamming."

You guys better have a care of what you say about Finley. He's serious business and will definatly put a smackdown upon & all over your tired, grey asses!

Yeh, it looks to me like he left a lot of gibber room for Whitefox, in sad contrast to what he gave Kil. Maybe it's because he thought he could get a good argument from Whitey, jazzing things up a bit on a slow day, whereas he wouldn't otherwise.

Interesting. I wonder what his next response will be. So far, aside from allowing you to post again, which is a good sign, he's behaved a bit like a "skeptical" version of petty tyrant, DaveScot. I hope he'll fix that.

The esteemed egomaniac Reginald sees fit to condescend:
I could be wrong. But that's what it appeared. However, I do find your post at your site rather childish to be honest.
How extraordinarily munificent of him! He could be wrong! And to hear his oracular opinion dispensed as in: "I do find your post at your site to be rather childish"......Seldom do we mere mortals have the honor and opportunity to be chastised personally by One of the Gods!

Kil, you have been the recipient of a rare approbation! You have been anointed and blessed by a Greater Power - you have been RECOGNIZED by Reginald the Royal! Drop to your knees and give obeisance to He Who Must Be Heard! And if He should offer you the opportunity to kiss His royal ass, Good God, pucker quickly! A lifetime could pass ere another occasion like that might arise!

Dave, that post wasn't Whitefox's first post at the forum, but his second.
Here's the first post from that user.
Though, that post does include some shameless self promotion.

Hey, good catch, Mab! This brings us to an interesting point. Finley wrote:

Now that Kil is not a first-time poster, is he free to spam the IG's forums with links to SFN? Hehehehehe.

Well, TIG has not responded to my last post. I doubt that he will. But perhaps he did respond in a way. While I was there, before I posted the offending post, I checked out the links section as well as other areas of his site. We were not there but he has a place to suggest links, like many sites do. Naturally, I suggested a link to us 'cause why not? Those links must be approved. Today I got an email with news that our link had been approved. You can find it at:

http://www.infidelguy.com/link-3.html

Since I made the suggestion that we put this nonsense behind us in my last post over there, that is what I plan to do, unless anything changes.

I just don't understand why anyone would think Kil was spamming.

1. He doesn't sell anything
2. There wasn't anything commercial about the post.

Believe me, I know how bad the problem of forum spamming is, but Kil's post was so far from even resembling spam that I am flabbergasted it could have been mistaken as one. So was Kil, hence the existence of this topic. Good moderation would have been to remove the link and perhaps PM the offending member, but that's just me.
