Brett Shaver’s has an interesting blog post at:
DFIR Training
In summary, Brett discusses views within the community that think it is inappropriate to ever post a link to your product or service, especially in a forum reply.
Well, obviously we agree with Brett’s view that this just doesn’t make sense and why we encourage “Trusted Contributors” and others from including links to their products and services if it helps answer a question or provides value to the conversation. And if it doesn’t, but you can answer a question, please include a link to your site in your signature.
This is why we believe in Real Names create a Real Community!
And why we encourage you to customize your profile picture even if it is your company logo.
We understand that...

I think not promoting X application from your specific company makes sense. However, I think if it's something that makes sense to reference it because it's a known choice when solving some kind of issue. I think having it in a signature. I find myself examine profiles and signatures for more about a person or company when the posts add to the conversation.

I agree. When a person is able to add value to the conversation, you often want to know more about that person. This is an excellent opportunity to see a link in their signature and learn more about them, their product or their blog.

It also helps to make it obvious when the person is recommending a product/service simply because they are associated with that business, especially when it doesn't add value to the conversation.

When its SPAM, then please click the "Report" link under the post. If it sort of helps, but its clear the product mentioned does not work for the given issue, then a nice old "Mad" or "Sad" face can work to show your displeasure with the post.
