with a slight increase in those touting for SEO
Not sure about "slight".
I was being circumspect ;) ( savor the experience , it doesn't happen often ) ..most of us can spot and thus, know who are the "culprits" anyway.."naming and shaming" doesn't work on "those who have no shame" ;) ..like those who post about how "high quality" what they post, write, blog etc is..
Pushy "self praise" doesn't seem to be considered spam in all countries and cultures though, ( nor does public "mutual back slapping" and what I term "incestuously citing of each others reputations" ) especially when related to SEO or SMO...or practiced by "consultants" in those fields..
