It appears that this[^] member is using sock-puppet accounts or friends to promote his articles and commercial products. This is definitely one that falls in a grey area. The issue is that the two accounts below are answering questions with links to this guy's commercial products and CP articles. The reason I mention the article links is that the language and syntax of the answers appear that they are the same person and likely the same person as this original main account. This original account is also spamming as there are links to his commercial products in the articles, but the articles are not in the 3rd party sections.

http://www.codeproject.com/script/Membership/View.aspx?mid=8921107[^] is promoting a commercial product in all his answers.

Just found another one promoting the same commercial products: http://www.codeproject.com/script/Membership/View.aspx?mid=9237861[^]
I wasn't, now I am, then I won't be anymore.
