No more conspiracy theories!

Are crackpot September 11 conspiracy theories the best of the web? Do we need more posts like these? Twice in one week? I think not.

Why do I not feel marketed at?

Save flogging, there's no bigger thrill:
Like watching starved wolves at a kill,
When users MeFi
Grab pitchforks and cry,
"How dare you fill blue with your shill!"

I found this post and the technology fascinating, and I don't consider it a shill for the product. But then I began wondering why it wasn't considered a shill post--if a product is cool enough, does it transcend the shill factor? What separates a shill post from a post about a nifty gadget? Or is it just a collective "We know shill when we see it"?
