Exactly, they did no harm. And thanks to the PA Report Author, they even got news coverage. There, and here. It worked. And just at the right point in the campaign.

So while the article may want to tell what not to do, it actually shows how to do it. Expect more SPAM in the future.

Funny thing is, some of the fans in the PAR comments said he could have published the article after the end of the campaign, thus avoiding damage to the campaign. The irony is, he should have done that. But not to avoid damaging the campaing, but to avoid rewarding that kind of behaviour.

(But I guess that would have raised the risk of some other site publishing a similar article before PAR. Can't have that. Right?)
