GeneralSpam blogs? EngineerSpock Pin

This user: EngineerSpock - Professional Profile[^] has five blogs in the queue:
Acceptance and UI Testing with SpecFlow and Selenium[^]
Writing the First Acceptance Test with SpecFlow[^]
Introduction to Selenium[^]
SOLID Principles: Liskov Substitution Principle (LSP) In Practice[^]
SOLID Principles: Interface Segregation Principle (ISP)[^]
All of which have "coupon codes" for discounts or direct links to his paid-for video tutorials.
Which strikes me as "rather spammy" - your thoughts, please? Do we allow this kind of self advertising in blogs?
He has 8 existing blogs from 2015/16 which don't look spammy, it's just the new bunch that are trying to monetize his videos.

@Sean-Ewington - any comments?
