Much of the content of this article seems to be self-promotion. I have removed numerous spam links, and tagged the article as advert, cleanup, etc. My prior changes were removed without discussion by a new editor who has made significant changes only to this article. I will caution the editor. Oldtaxguy (talk) 01:46, 25 May 2011 (UTC)
