[TheThinkTank] Do I have this wrong?

Tell me if I am wrong. If you work on a bike and make it better, that work has value. If I work on a process and make it better, the knowledge has no value and should be given away for free? 
 
 When 
 someone posts to a mailing list to sell a product, to me that 
 constitutes cause to block that person from the mailing list.
 
 If you want to freely share here tutorials and techniques for everyone 
 to review and learn from, in the interest of helping community bike 
 shops hone their skillsets to a higher standard, I'd be the first to get 
 interested. As it is, you never post detailed instructions, and quite 
 frankly a lot of the processes you allude to are bizarrely out of scope 
 with what most of us do on a daily basis. Your posts smell like bait.
 
 I'm personally requesting that you reconsider posting here. In this 
 particular case, you even tacked your message onto a completely 
 unrelated thread. I mean, might be I'm actually talking to a spam bot.
