Wrong as in wrong forum for the viral marketing approach to try to drum up business for the STC seminar, whereinafter you are called out and try to come up with "conversational" content after the fact. If you want to have a real conversation, have one by all means. Otherwise, I /hate/ being manipulated. I don't believe for a second, not a second, that you just "felt like" having a conversation about the STC, so you came here, created an account, and posted your ad twice: "What's everyone's take on this? <ADVERTISEMENT>" This is as fake as it gets and it pissed me off.
At this point, you either want to be a member of the community or not. My advice is to get to know the room better before posting in the future.
