As far as I can see the previous ones were fine but this one contained the following along with links to the site
I used this guide to deploy my test site to DigitalOcean. The guide is long, but easy to follow and comprehensive.

Virtual servers on DigitalOcean are called droplets. I am using a $5/month droplet for testing with these specifications:

1 GB memory
25 GB disk
1 TB transfer
Ubuntu 18.04 x64

IMO, this is very cheap for $5/month.

Not sure if I'm overreacting though, opinions?

FYI, I reported only the article, not the user because I think spamming may not be deliberate
