GeneralI don't like these articles, ElektroStudios - not one bit. - Gone Pin

There are five articles in the queue at the moment:
S.M.A.R.T. API for .NET[^]
HostsMan[^]
Easy Link File Viewer[^]
.NET Assembly Info[^]
HardwareStress[^]
And they are all by the same member: ElektroStudios - Professional Profile[^]

Trouble is, they are all the same format: a one line description, a big hunk of "Donate via PayPal!", and a bunch of pictures.
Which isn't an article, so I've gone for "Extremely poor quality" - but I really don't like the "Donate" bit at all. For me, that's too close to spam; it's pretty obviously the bit of the "article" he's put the most work into in each case, and the main reason for the post.

Should we allow this? Any thoughts people?

@Chris-Maunder
@Sean-Ewington

Could we have a definitive ruling on this, please?
