To paraphrase: “this space is not for sale”
While researching for this post I found that this experience, this revulsion at shilling, is more common than I thought and equally as distressing:
Tom Coates over at plasticbag.org was compelled to share this image and story as a result of experiences when:
press people consider me an outlet to push their marketing messages. It upsets me that people in the world can look at me and only see ways that they can scavenge some limited advantage through which to push their agendas. They see my personal expression, my unadulterated opinion and they think they can use it as a host for their parasitic bullshit.
I couldn’t agree more with these heartfelt manifestos.
My experiences with kind of behavior have left behind a slightly different flavour. I’m not a died in the wool opponent to people making money out of their content and am a staunch believer in the capitalist imperative…
But it needs to be the decision of the content creator:

never NEVER without my permission
