    Oh, it's not about rules. It's about people realising when they're being sold to.

      I totally understand where you're coming from Dirk, and I didn't mean to come off that way. To be fair, I posted 24 articles on my site before experimenting with one like this that has an intriguing title. I don't have ads or anything spammy on the article; its just a curated list of interesting logos with common traits and credits. Also, I think the definition of click-baiting is when the thumbnail or title is misleading. The thumbnail/hero is from the contents of the article, and the title couldn't be more descriptive (or plain). I think it's just effective.

      With that said, I understand your point that it looks better if I share other content first before sharing my own. Fair enough. Obviously the line of what comes off as self-promotion is a blurry one. While I disagree with you overall, I have absorbed your feedback and will learn from it. Cheers. :)
