Damn, I was waiting to hear from the team on my side that handles that account.

Wiseguide Deals is legit, it's from us. It's supposed to be going in the Vendor Deals section, but is done by an automated posting plugin, and I guess they have it incorrectly set up to go into the General Discussions section.

I'll leave things as they are for now while I wait for the team on my end to look into this

Bumped on my end and got a response. I was correct that the automated posting tool had been incorrectly set up, and for the time being this site isn't going to be getting any more posts from it

Thank you. Our membership is very vigilant about reporting spam. As a moderator, it is very frustrating to unable to stop spam from a "legit" source.

sorry about that. They should have our email (@verticalscope.com) if you guys ever wonder if it's spam or not.
