I've edited the "1-2 per day" claim to "1-2 per week" - my memory was skewed by a relative glut in the past few days, but looking back at the history makes the latter estimate seem more plausible.

I'm sorry if that isn't enough for you, but by definition an answer that we definitely think is spam or promotion would be deleted, so it's the best I can do. 10K users can see them so if they think something is wrong they can always raise it, but the policy of restricting deleted answers to them is a general StackExchange policy, not ours.

You'd need to get to 10K rep to be able to see deleted answers, but as it happened I deleted an answer on this question yesterday that was longer than yours (pre-edit) and had the same kind of discussion as yours but had some other features that made it much more likely to be spam (affiliate links, roughly the same material posted in multiple answers).

Welcome to Personal Finance & Money! This sounds like a question about business rather than personal finance, so is probably not on-topic here, I'm afraid.
