SPAM on weblogs.java.net

Every week there is a next-to-identical post on some software called esProc on https://www.java.net/blogfront

However, that software seems to be completely unrelated to Java. This is just an advertisement!

In fact, the syntax looks like "Excel reinvented" to me, referencing table cells via A1 etc.?!?

Do we really want such SPAM to be on the weblogs page? In particular, as it repeats every week, making 1 out of 5 articles currently posted an advertisement of "esProc".

Spam still going on:

and apparently nobody at Java.net cares. This forum seems to be dead.

Hi. No, the forum is not dead and the editor was working with the individual to try and clean up the blog posts. They have since posted the latest entry and they no longer have blogging privileges on the site.
