    Does anyone else notice that virtually EVERY FREE ANDROID GAME is spammed with "redeem this code for free gems in Pocket Empires" comments?! It's to the point where I get angry seeing it.

    I'm also starting to think they're in cahoots with the game's developer. Lots of other games give bonuses for referral codes, but ONLY Pocket Empires plagues the Marketplace comments with spam. More people playing = more $$$ made through AdMob.

    Your thoughts?

    Agreed. I just mark the comments as Spam whenever I see them. I play PE and enjoy it, but posting your referal code in the comments secion of a completly unrelated app is rediculous.

    I couldn't agree more, in regular apps, I see, "USE referal code, blah in this ****ty game"

    I want to report every comment I see, but I don't have that kind of time.

    I don't like seeing the referral codes for various games posted in this forum, let alone random apps comments.

    It's extremely annoying and it's on nearly every app you read comments about. Maybe if they pull the game off the system for a week it will stop.

    I play the game a lot and i love it but i do agree with you guys. It should be common sense not be spamming everywhere but free things always bring out the greed in people.

    They already posted a poll in game and the majority of players 3500 vs 1200 are voting to keep the referral system so even though i put in my vote for no, i have a feeling it will stick around.

    I say email the developers for the best result, they check their mail every ten minutes.

    It is very annoying and they are also very insistent like somebody cares about their referral code .
    BTW if you get Pocket Empires please use this referral code GKER43D , if you do I'll personally bring you a Droid Incredible and cook diner for you .

    Well, if it makes you feel any better I permanently banned the guy yesterday for spamming. He shouldn't be around here anymore.

    I am actually starting to get joy out of reporting those comments as SPAM, it makes me feel like I'm doing something, though I'm sure in the big picture it doesn't matter.

    This is the root of the issue. The developers are the source of the spam! I wonder if reporting this to Google would do anything...

    As a side note, I don't really support killing ads on apps that you enjoy. I will probably develop an app within the next couple months, but this kind of stuff almost discourages me from trying. I believe the New York Times (correct me if I'm wrong) had a good article about how browser ad-blockers are killing the websites you love to visit, despite how annoying ads can be.

    If you find the app to be really useful, let the developer recoup the costs, maybe make a little profit. They're not charging you for it!

    I understand what you're trying to say, but afaik the real "revenue" from ads/banners comes from actually clicking on them, and even then if you don't click on them and you're not looking at them to begin with, there's really no harm done. I don't watch commercials on TV when I rarely do watch TV, why? DVR. In fact the whole reason I've stopped watching TV for the most part are commercials in the first place. Chances are the ones that are using the ad blocking software to begin with, are the ones that never look at or click the ads to begin with. Anyway, just my two cents.

    The developers posted they will be banning people who spam their codes in the reviews of other games.
