    I just googled the email add and came up with this http://www.classifiedadsdb.com/11143...o-hosting.html

    I find it very suspicious though if they claim it's an affiliate because there is absolutely no link. Not even a link back to Cirtex Hosting. There is the contact information and promotional text but just no link. hmmm. Maybe they can shed some light on this.

    I have to say, it's a bit concerning that they haven't yet provided an update after all this time.

    I do not know if they are ignoring the thread because according to their profile HERE they have been active Yesterday 02:55 PM . Hmmm. Very disturbing indeed

    Actually Akismet is indeed enabled with Disqus and it did not catch the SPAM!

    After such a long time, there are still no proper response from Cirtex / HostV in this thread.

    Does this mean that they are condoning the actions of the blog spammers or are these spammers hired by CirtexHosting to boost their search engine ranking?

    This thread to me, personally, seems very over the top, I'm still trying to work out why the OP is so irate about it, the only thing I can think of is attention seeking, seeing as I followed this from a "look@me" post in the premium area.

    Spam happens, I have yet to see any other mention of cirtex from anywhere else I have visited / read, and if it was someone being paid to do this, then I'm sure there would be better places than your blog.

    Anyway that was my 2 cents and another 10 minutes of my life I won't ever get back.

    Did you look at the amount of spam they (or the person they hired) created around the web? This is to boost their SERP ranking which is plain wrong for such a reputable company.

    I highly doubt its actually Cirtex / HostV, its probably the SEO company they are using.

    And that makes it right? The blame still falls on Cirtex for not doing their due diligence when hiring an SEO company.

    I have emailed management and the owner about this, I do believe it is an SEO company or affiliate. Our affiliates can enable Direct Links so any referral from a certain domain will be credited to them without the actual affiliate link.

    Its the SEO company not Cirtex. Not saying its right but you can't 100% blame Cirtex on it.

    Accepting it is the "seo" is no different than accepting the old "the designer must have copied it"

    Running forums myself, I am VERY familiar with Cirtex companies.

    Give it a rest, SPAM happens. Cirtex Hosting has politely updated you and have taken the higher road while you continue to bump this thread with baseless attacks against them. If comments on your blog are this upsetting then maybe you should consider an approval system before they are published.

    I agree with you 100% Poor tact on the part of the original poster and in my opinion have only hurt the reputation of every hosting company they are associated with.
