Who Works for Keen?

After exchanging PMs with another person here, I asked if she worked for Keen, since her PM had a Keen URL embedded as a sig line.

Turns out, we all have Keen URLs embedded as new sig lines in our PMs.

I am not sponsored by Keen, I do not sponsor Keen, I do not represent Keen, I do not want to be seen as endorsing Keen unless and until I have a contract.

I'm not using PMs anymore. Anyone who loves Keen or works at Keen and wants to offer me an endorsement contract, can PM Curt and ask him for my email address.

And yes, I know there is a forum for "Suggestions."

Boo hoo hoo. I have not noticed this, but if everyone has a Keen URL, then nobody is going to think that you are endorsing Keen.

Thanks. I am totally obsessed with it. It is all I think about. Points. Points. Points.

I pm'd myself, but no Keen sig. There were lots of mean and hurtful comments, but no traces of Keen.

Do I have to do it with another person for it to count? (Why do I feel like I've asked that before?)

Well, that's interesting because there is a Keen sig line in every PM i receive. I don't recall exactly when this started--maybe a couple months ago? It doesn't bug me quite as much as it does k.l.k., but I do think it's a little weird.

Yeah, it started showing up in emails I received in November. Before that it wasn't there. Now it appears in archived messages as well.

I don't know if my browser was blocking it before, and now it isn't, or if the site just began adding them recently.

If I didn't post under my own name, I would probably care less.

It would bother me considerably (if I could see it), largely because it's not weird; it's the ever-increasing invasiveness of advertising and its normalization.

Oddly enough, I work in communications and marketing and have photographed Keen samples for promotional materials.
