Is the following opening post spam or not?
I am not good at figuring out subtle spamming.

Somebody else just reported it, so it probably is spam.;)

while we're on the subject, should the following thread be reported as spam or should it be posted in the travel guide section instead?

That guy does not seem to be advertising anything.
Not in that post anyway.
And his advise is very good. ;)

However, his profile is an advertisement for tour guide services. UMM!!!
I only find these people annoying, when they give patronising or wrong advise.

He's got a link to his site at the bottom and it's a duplicate post. But I'll let it slide and just post a follow up.
