Um... Huh?

I know that it is a general consensus that we should not make fun of posts that are in the shameless promotion... After all, it's supposed to be shameless... But I have to admit that this post baffles me.

 

Is it merely pointless, or is it pointless and spam?

 

Could it perhaps be non-sequitur art of some kind?

 

Behold:

 

"GRANT FOR WORKS IN PROGRESS


by  ******     on ‎03-25-2016 02:15 (21 Views)


 

The Authors’ Foundation and the K. Blundell Trust will give grants totaling $230,000 each year to assist writers with research costs or ‘buy time’. The grant is for any author whose project is for a British publisher.

The Authors’ Foundation does not assist towards the cost of publication. For this reason, self-published authors are ruled out."

 

In light of the last sentence, what would motivate someone to post this?

 

Color me baffled.

    Who knows? There have been several of these Grant posts lately.
    Could they be the new scams? Maybe I'm just too sceptical.

    I also don't get people promoting a book in Shameless Promotion
    which isn't even published on Lulu. Perhaps there should be
    an Utterly Shameless thread?

    The Shameless Promotion facility is just a waste of time.
    Most people can't be bothered to provide a link to the
    book they are promoting, or don't say anything worthwhile
    about the book they are trying to promote. Some of the
    recent posts are a case in point. I wish that posts to
    Shameless Promotion were moderated because, quite frankly,
    they are currently utterly shameful.
