Just found this and thought it'd be of interest to music engravers and composers. This guy has made a set of fonts for notating any fingering imaginable for any woodwind, brass or keyboard instrument.

"Just found" it? From your previous posts, it would seem that it's your product.

advertising your product is one thing. particularly when it is actually related to what is going on on this forum.

HOWEVER, pretending you are a disinterested 3rd party ("I just found this") is incredibly dishonest and is an obnoxious practice that does nothing more than reduce your credibility, rather than pique interest in your product.

I am reporting this post as spam.
related to the forum topic or not, the approach the poster has taken is one of a cheap spammer and should be treated as such.

"There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs." ~John Rogers

Hear hear!  There's nothing wrong with talking about your product when it is related to the forum. Tobias Giesen has done this with his TG Tools for years, and his posts and comments are welcome on the forum. But this method stinks.

To be fair, his post in the Macintosh forum didn't do this. It does look like a cool product for those that need it.

Honestly guys, don't go overboard. It's not worth getting stressed over. Give him a break. Small Business is hard enough these days. He's actually "advertising" something that people here might be interested in, even though he didn't do it in the most appropriate way.
Now if he was marketing sneakers or jewelry. . .

I'm not stressed, and I'm ok with the advertising post because it's so related to what we do here. The issue that some of us have is captured in your very first word: "Honestly". So with that:
 
Tristan: Welcome to the forum. We're a reasonable bunch of folks here. Your product may well be very useful for some of us, so we're glad to know about it. But in the future, just be up front with it.
