Site advertising[edit]

I don't usually edit pages so I don't really know wikipedia policy, but the following seems like advertising a website.

"The main source of information about forecasting on the internet is the Forecasting Principles site, forecastingprinciples.com." —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 145.97.201.67 (talk) 15:50, 1 March 2007 (UTC).

I have to agree the second paragraph on this article sounds very much like advertising. Some of the external links might be useful and should be considered to be moved to a different section possibly.

As someone who has taken an interest in the subject, I can confirm that the comment about the Forecasting Principles site is true and fair. It is much bigger than the others. The other links are useful and should be kept. 80.1.88.54 21:24, 26 April 2007 (UTC)
I'm sorry, but the text around the link is simply promotional adcopy. The link itself is to a low content site which appears to pitch conferences. I have removed it - please discuss here if you feel it should be re-added. Kuru talk 12:13, 25 June 2007 (UTC)

I too don't usually edit pages but I know that eGain is a company, among others, that provide forecast based building control. This is advertising. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 81.91.3.3 (talk) 08:44, 3 October 2013 (UTC)
