I say no to promoting your (unknown) product

I say no to promoting your productI say no a lot.

It's true.

Today I got an email sharing with me some amazing new plugin that all of you need. You basically can't live without it. And they wanted to know if I would write a post about it. They wanted to know if they could offer it to me for free so I could write a post about it.

Now, I've talked to others who have wanted the same thing—but their approach is different. They know me. We talk. They have done their homework.

But this email was different.

It's like they wrote Mr. Lema on it, simply because they got it from the domain name records of my URL.

So today I decided to give them an answer.

Let me begin by saying upfront that I should probably open up this video with my <rant> tag.
