The spamming of websites in this way is quite frankly ridiculous. It does you no favours and more importantly it does the industry no good whatsoever either.

†Interestingly poor old Dave was told by an anonymous commenter (says it all really) that his original post would ‘damage his brand’ and was further accused of ‘stooping to the level of “juvenile journalism” like the defacto industry rag (aka. The DailyDOOH)’ in having the guts and wherewithal to call mediasignage on this bad practise.
