Please stop spamming the comments.

To those of you who submit comments with zero content other than soliciting for your Tableau training, consulting, or other commercial purposes: you might as well stop.

Your comments will not be published.

I find it offensive that you're spamming the comments, contributing nothing to the topic at hand but looking to advertise your wares.

It offends me personally in that I need to spend time attending to your crass, pushy, rudeness.

It offends those of us who have put in the time, energy, and effort to become competent professionals. Your pushing the idea that simply taking a short Tableau training course, of dubious quality, is enough to get someone to pay you to work with it is at best naive, misleading, and reflective of the race to the bottom that values a smear of exposure to real competence.

Examples of comments I will not publish:

  1. On the positive side, it demonstrates that Tableau is being embraced more and more. But yes, it's frustrating.

  2. Hi there.. These are actually spam bots that do this and not a person who intentionally type this sh!t in. It is extremely annoying I know. I believe that they do this to get some juice from google but I am sure that google has taken this into account in their rankings. Askimai (not sure if the spelling is right) has a plugin that deletes most of these automatically. Not sure if blogspot can use plugins.
