what is your take on corporate comments?

Occasionally I get comments on my blog from corporate folk. They’ll chime in on the discussion and then, as if they are objective, discuss some company that deals with the issue in some way and link to it. I’ve been approving these comments, but editing them before I do by taking out the hyperlinks from their usernames and within their comments.

What do other folks do? What is your take on these blasted comments?

    I usually ask for either a free t-shirt or at least a 1gb jump drive šŸ˜‰

    Like Chris V, I don’t get corporate comments (yet?) so the notion never crossed my mind. I guess it would depend on who they are and what they say. In terms of who I guess I mean both the corporation and the person speaking for it. Is it a PR person? Is it the CEO? Is it an “official” comment or just a “random” comment? Is it substantive and thoughtful, defensive, self-promoting, advertising?

    I can see how leaving them on could appear to be endorsing that company and it’s policies. I confess that I haven’t read all the threads to your blog posts so I haven’t noticed these. Could you direct us, your readers, to a sample so that we had a better idea of the dilemma?

    But clearly, you are touching a nerve, and that’s a good sign, yes?

    I’ll second Chris’s comment.
