» Samsung agency using astroturfing

Delyan Kratunov was contacted by an agency hired by Samsung and asked to dump a bunch of dumb promotional questions into Stackoverflow, a developer resource site.

This kind of thing isn’t unusual in the industry. Microsoft’s minions have done similar things in the past. It’s still as sleazy as Sunday morning (at least the way I do Sunday morning, your mileage may vary).
