Amen, brother! I hate the multiple posts in a row, especially when they're all self-promo. What I tell people: would you walk into a dinner party and continuously try to sell yourself? No, you carry on a *conversation*, you're polite. You slip it in, then leave it at that. So should it be online. Any more and people will tune you out.
