I would have never thought twice about this if it was his answer, but do you think editing other people's answers to add self promoting links is okay?
It seems there is still some controversy over the validity of the link. The following conversations have taken place. Since aleemb thinks there is a legal precedence for him to be able to promote his blog post in my answer, I took the liberty of renaming it to "fast comment blocks" to clear the air.
Posted by myself on the blog post in question after the link was edited in a second time:
You did by no means invent this or the term “Lazy Block Comment” and I would appreciate if you would stopping adding this link into my Stack Overflow answer. A meta discussion (Is adding your own links to someone else's answer allowed?) has deemed it unacceptable behavior.
I’m writing this as a comment to your blog post because I have no real way of replying to you on the official stack overflow system, feel free to delete this after you have read it.
I dubbed the technique “Lazy Block Comments” and I challenge you to find any prior citations of this technique.
As surely as I am writing this email to you, I wrote out this blog post and came up with the name “Lazy Block Comments” which you referred to verbatim in your post on SO. If you want to have integrity then I suggest you cite your sources instead of passing it off as your own.
I wasn’t ripping you off and passing it off as my own. I certainly haven’t read your blog before you posted the link. Lazy is just the best word used to describe a special block comment, it’s not very unique or special, just a description of what lots of people have evidently discovered.
I’m sure many would use to word “lazy” to describe the programing practice, I think it’s naive to take credit for being the “first” person to use such a common adjective.
