hey,
I just bought the coolest camera. its the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ1 it’s the world's smallest ultra zoom camera. can I tell you that I went to the red sox game and I was sitting in RF and the pictures I got of the players were unbelievable. they came out like I was standing right in front of them. you should check it out.

Hey
I love taking pictures at the games but unfortunately I don’t always get the best seats so a camera with a great zoom is perfect for me. Any place special you got yours?

Why does this sound like astroturfing to me?

Astroturfing?? I think so......

Is this kind of thing common on TP?

Unfortunately it kinda is, yeah, although usually it's detected way more easily. I think most popular communities catering to groups of people who form the target audience for such things will suffer from it, though.
I'll go and mark the above two posts as spam based on the PM as well - let Peter and Sam sort it out. (Maybe see which other members joined that day and have had similar posting habits. [edit: oh wait, you said May 8th, not April 8th like these two were. Still, will be good to bring to their attention.])

I just noticed the spam report here, and it took me a while to work out why it was reported.
I learned a new thing now, Astroturfing. Never heard that before...

I will leave it out there for S&P as suggested by Sander. Thanks for the watchful eye. Now go back to the basement and create some more TP gimmicks for us to enjoy!

Phil.

Hi road_trip,

If you find a PM you receive suspect, flag it as SPAM (on the left hand side of the PM). That will notify Peter and me of the perpetrator (sp?) and we can then decide what do with them (block them from sending any more messages or remove them altogether or just open up their account again). It helps us keep a handle on different types of Spammers out there. I disagree with Sander though, it's not common on TP. Although people will try all kinds of sad things to promote their business or scam on TP, most members have a good idea of what is legit or not and it will be removed from the public eye pretty quick.... but yes, we do get a few trying

By the way, I'm removing the spam flags to keep the discussion making sense.

Cheers Sam I Am, I'll remember for next time...;) as well as keeping my eye out for other culprits..
