Maybe. But stupid or not, I prefer to focus on the intent of the
poster, which is well-intentioned. When in doubt, a little bit
of netiquette is not a bad thing.
On the other hand, I agree with Barry's defence of posting
information about academically-related products such as
books or software. One person's spam is another person's
valued information. Just because you have to pay for something
doesn't make the information crass commercialism.
