I have run across this user that has a link to a series of online courses in his profile and have seen him post it in some of his comments, and also a question linking to a supposed solution on that site.

At fist glance, registration and course materials are not free (the course is 995 pounds).

Should we allow advertising through the stackexchange platform?

  • ethereum.stackexchange.com/questions/8289/… This one question I've seen pointing to the same site. I did not bookmark the respective questions where the comments were posted but remember seeing them on Monday). The asker did not update the question with the required information to make it answerable but the user I'm mentioning answered it anyway :)

StackExchange has this covered and https://ethereum.stackexchange.com/help/promotion has guidelines about this.

Here's the introduction:

The community here tends to vote down overt self-promotion and flag it as spam. Post good, relevant answers, and if some (but not all) happen to be about your product or website, that’s okay. However, you must disclose your affiliation in your answers.

The conclusion is:

If the only reason you're here is to sell something or drive traffic to your site, then please avoid posting answers...
