Is shilling for a web site free advertising?

Original post made by Nurse Shark, Canyon Creek, on Mar 31, 2010

It occurs to me that a certain person has been actively marketing a for-profit opinion site here via numerous threads every single day for quite some time now.

Is this okay? Can others promote their web sites on countless threads?

Clearly it's a marketing strategy. How about it, PW editors?
