Give me two and a half reasons why the above post is not considered as spam.

Note that the "half a reason" it has to be interesting, creative, and full of subtlety.

I look forward to your reply, sir.

(Else face the ban damnation)

How do you get a refund on a free service?

Because I said so
Because other people have done the same thing here
Number 1/2 -> Can't find a reason for this one

Hi PC World users > hello

I am Revanth from Hostopia > never heard of you
a web hosting company. . thats great. I host my own website
I wanted to share something with all of you. > how generous
We are currently running a promotion. . so are several million other businesses

Theres a solid half reason I see this as spam.

Full reason 1, Cheesy names like Cheapopia, Bsicopia, Standardopia, Xtralargeopia
Full Reason 2 Inability to spell correctly and using (u-sing?) u instead of you

Now sincere apologys if I am wrong but I can't see this as a proper advertisement so unless you managed to break out of google ad words and into the forum there is no excuse, not even the one like every one does it.

last time I checked everyone was jumping off cliffs and talking about 17% packet loss.

Forum rules are usually obeyed. even angry got there in the end ( I hope)

PS, I said this is spam. my word is better than yours because 300 (sorry 410) posts is infinately better than 3.

ze end.

PPS, your sig banner fails

Forum rules say otherwise
Which results in said spammers and their posts being removed from the forum
Think about this one some more as you re-read the forum rules

Haha, made me smile, some people ...

"You can have a refund on our free service, if you pay for it ... but then it won't be a free service, but that's besides the point"
