You are a walking textbook in logical fallacy.

Yep. Those are my sites. Yep, among others, I do work for Rebel. I don't 
do SEO for them, and truth be told I don't think they do much of it at 
all, but since they are a client, I'm not party to their books. But SEO 
isn't spam anymore than WordPress is spam because people use it to make 
spammy sites.

Nope. I don't hang out in the forums, but I also don't have any public 
themes or plugins to support.

I've addressed the things you've said in every one of my responses, 
you've not afforded the same level of communication. I'm through with 
you. Think as you will, you are on the losing side of history.
