While I agree that it is (almost) definitely spam, this IS the kind of question that is not out-of-character for a legitimate newbie to post. So it is with an eye toward erring on the side of not banning an innocent newbie that we have chosen this approach. Basically, the downside of not preemptively banning a spammer as early as possible is a lot more palatable than the downside of accidentally banning a new member making an honest inquiry.It's definitely spam. I wouldn't even wait.
It's a marketing tactic that goes way, way back. Where I see it the most (because I don't watch TV or cable or such) is on radio when I'm driving. Some "show" (almost always it's actually a paid program-length advertisement) will have some caller that happens to ask just the right question so that the host can inform them that the perfect thing for them just happens to be what the are trying to sell.Is that really how you think this is working? What is the purpose of doing it that way?
