Maybe you don't see it, but there could very well be an appearance of a conflict of interest here. The OP was not just "promoting Perl", he was drawing attention to your book. (Surely your hubris is not so great as to believe that your book is Perl -- or an authorized representative thereof?) The point being, one might wonder whether you'd have been as apt to defend the post if it had been a review of someone else's book, or, conversely, if anyone else would have rushed to defend the OP against my charges — as, it indeed appears, no one else has.

Anyway, it's minor, so I'm happy to let it go.

    Because chromatic already covered it

    The OPs post was not shilling in any way shape or form.

    The review was short, but its an actual review, it stands on its own, so despite a link to OPs blog, it wasn't spamming. As long as the node is relevant, links to your own blog are allowed , even in signatures, and its not spam.
