Response to: This isn't an article, it is an advertisement

OK, I have been looking at this thread of discussions and at the risk of offending some people, I felt inclined to say something objective here.

First and foremost, O'Reilly Network have been offering a lot of content for free and readers have been enjoying this benefit for a long time. Ask youself, have you been asked to pay a single cent for the O'Reilly Network content?

And in this particular instance, what O'Reilly has done is advertise that an PDF book is for sale (which happens to be mine). If you don't like it, just ignore it and move to the next article that is free. What a lot of readers do not understand is that publishers do need revenues to survive. The next time you see an advertisement on TV, please remember to write in to complain that "that is just pure spam".

I am sorry this comment of mine has nothing to do with ClickOnce and that I have wasted your valuable time reading it.

    You misunderstood my comment, I had no objection to you advertising your PDF book. My comment relates to the format of your advert. Every other item on this feed is an informative article. Your item is a pure advert disguised as an informative article.

    Advertising goes both ways. You need viewers to make your advert effective. If you don't provide me a reason to watch this feed then I don't see your advert and it's pointless.

    I refer you back to my original comment. Why not take the time to write a useful article on ClickOnce (that gives me something) and then use that opportunity to tell me about the benefits of your book (that gives you something). Everyone is then happy.
