New term: Love Leech

I’m coining a new term: Love Leech.

We’ve all seen those business people who add a blog comment saying something like: “I see you’ve blogged about X, then certainly you’ll enjoy X’s closest competitor, my business, X2!”

Sometimes this is just flat out spam, but other times I think it can genuinely be part of the discussion.

What do you think?

(I’m not sureĀ  I’m the first one to coin this term, but a quick Google search revealed that perhaps I am. If not, would the original coinee please to not sue. kthxbai.)
