I suppose that's one way of looking at it.

But what I said is true. It's a shame that out of all the things that every site on Ozblogistan has ever posted, this is the one that made the HN front page.

There are far better posts than mine in those blogs. Is it wrong for me to be proud of them?

You're ignoring the fact that your post on WPEngine is actually relevant to this site, whereas only one of your promoted posts has anything to do with tech.

It's not wrong to be proud, but I have to agree that blatant advertising is distasteful no matter which way you slice it.

I don't agree with you, but I can understand why you feel that way.

In case you are wondering, I don't make any money from the traffic. Each of the blogs decide for themselves whether to host advertising.

I sometimes forget that because I have about 3k advertising servers blocked in my hosts file ...

But now you are posting off-topic comments to that sensationalist post. This does harm to your credibility as a complaining customer, frankly, because now it seems you have an ulterior motive for complaining so loudly.

Personally, I downvoted the comment and suggest you delete it.

I disagree on the question of credibility and motives.

If you are so proud of them, continue to submit them as single links to HN.

I do. And I will.
