Doyle Lee Austin Davison Iv It is definitely spam; however, I did see an ad in the upper right corner for something similar. It could be AR advertising.

I surely think it is a form of spam or business solicitation.

Ben Kinley owns ActiveRain and kwkly.  It is cross promotion between related companies.  It will not be considered to be spam by ActiveRain.

Doyle - I think this is a marketing/sales pitch from the AR people to purchase their other products. I would anticipate we will be seeing more and more of these.

I may be wrong but looks like possibly a KW ad.  I believe this may be a new venue for AR in that Brivity, who is hosting a contest, had a pop up in the same corner for about 2 weeks.  Mark

No that is not spam. That is a promo for one of Ben Kinney's companies.
