They are an education based business I believe....

Eton Dubai seem to be branching out into spamming on forums now.

Sad to see such an establishment operating in this way...

I doubt it's Eton Dubai itself. Probably some social media marketing company it has hired. You know those adverts that you see "I earn £2,500 a month working from home!"? Yeah. Those are the people doing it.

Best thing to do is to complain to Eton and make it clear that you're not impressed with spamming. They'll drop the marketing company quickly once they realise they're risking bad press.

Na... I'll leave this here. BE actually results in a pretty high SEO effect. The message will find its way back to them if they give a shit about their online reputation.

If they post here to say something...

Whoever is doing their 'social media' stuff has also been spamming TripAdvisor - on UAE forums and on the Muscat forum. All posts were removed sharpish by the mods.

Any chance of a competitor or person with an axe to grind doing it?

I'm thinking - perhaps we can have a name and shame thread... spammer companies will be listed...
