yeah, me an columbo were thinkin the same thing. probably coz it doesn't seem normal to provide such a link for your first post. plus skyhorses' grasp of the english language is kinda distorted which loosely implies that his post was a quick get in then get out
Like many have said before me, you get what you pay for. If you run a business site, I can't see using a free host--it just screams out--we're small, we're cheap and this is our first web site!
Seriously, hosting doesn't have to be expensive in order to be worthwhile, but expect to pay for the service you get. And yes, it looks to me like spam too when someone's first post contains a link to a site and not much more.
