Article marketing is a supremly inefeicient way of getting traffic and marketing persay as it rquires the very things that Paul is now working to rid the forum of. Without proxies, auto submitting and spinners and other black hat nonsense it would never be viable
Its my opinion that the current crop of internet garbage creators would not have congregated in this forum if there wasnt this build up of article marketing people in the forum.
It dominates the main forum just like the email spammers did in the old days, it took a whole lot of persistance and pain to clear them out. It may be thats what we will have to go through to clear the latest batch of electronic spammers out.
Relagating them to a sub forum would make this easier and less painful.
Now I'm sure this has already been discussed by the super mods, and for now that doesnt seem to be the way they want to go
But I for one would jump up and down with joy if this happened.
