This looks like spam to me. If enough people disagree I will leave it. If not - I will have to kill this thread. Obviously the line can be vague at times between real legit promo & spam but to my eyes this fall on the wrong side. Partly this is because chop shop isn't quite type related enough to slide by.

I don't know the rules, but it seems type-related to the extent of having interesting type on it. Really quirky % symbol.

A lot of of nice use of type on the products featured in the shop too.

I'm happy to have been pointed to it.

Thomas, We have a strong anti-spam policy. You are not allowed to put spam in the blog either. On the other hand...

If folks don't think it's spam, then it isn't. Arun, thanks for weighing in.

I understand… I admittedly use forums like this to get our stuff out there. Generally people react pretty positively to them. But I can see how this would seem like spam. There is a fine line. My biased view is that if the message is targeted to a proper audience people generally do not mind. If this were about viagra or penis enlargement then there is no argument. I guess its about abuse… if and when too many post things like I did then it would likely become a nuisance.

I would understand if it were deemed inappropriate. Just sharing my logic.

Thanks for sharing your logic. But I don't think it's just a question of what you are promoting.

Also, in general when I see a post that doesn't seem to have any type/font/letter/calligraphic related content I start to get suspicious. Also there has been a bit of an uptick in obvious spam around here so I am a bit more vigilant.

Also, looking at your posts I see a better than 50% promotional post rate which is to my eyes at least a bit high. You are clearly getting positive feedback for your designs. But personally I want to encourage you to use Typophile for ( as I understand it ) - it's intended purpose. The exchange of information, help, ideas etc.

Think about it. If we all did what you are doing Typophile would poorer for it. Do you see what I mean?

In the meantime you should consider that I have given you a "yellow card".

If the other Mods disagree please speak up here or contact me off the board.

I have been in contact with the other Moderators here on the board & they say that although spirit of what I was saying has some merit, because this is a blog entry I am being to severe. I think they are right. So I take it back. Sorry.

We just need to make a bigger deal out of the fact that people can create their own news. :^)

If you have Typophile worthy news, post it! http://typophile.com/node/add/story
Let Tiffany Wardle (me) or Paul Hunt know you have posted some news so we can approve it for you.
