Apparently Flip This House, or someone working on their behalf, has an online strategy. It looks like they are trolling blogs that mention the show and placing an advertisement in the blog's comments.
My post on U.S. monetary policy mentioned the show in what I would think is a neutral to less-than-flattering manner. The producers are looking to recruit "flippers-in-trouble" to appear on a special episode of the show. They would be smart to make every episode of the show follow this format. It is difficult to stomach that the people behind this show would profit from helping to froth the market in the first place and then again by chronicling the implosion on the downside of the market curve. The advertisement masquerading as a comment says the show will offer "expert financial advice" and I'm sure the amateur tycoons getting killed in the real estate downturn need such advice.
This is not my first comment spam. Posts on digital topics, particularly related to search and search marketing, tend to attract online marketers with aggressive goals and little regard for civil behavior. The line between online editorial outreach and spam is very gray and easy to cross-over. Organizations with all the best intentions to get savvy and market digitally can end up becoming spammers if they don't understand what they are buying, hire the right kind of agency, and monitor their work.
