i also make announcements for my upcoming public Python courses, which
happen b/w 2-4 times a year.  it's very infrequent, and although could
be seen as commercial advertisments, is definitely for the benefit of
the community and helps put food on my table.  some have complained
about it, but many more others have said things to the effect of,
"*thanks* for posting your course announcements... i've been wanting
to take your class," or "i wouldn't have been able to find out about
it any other way," etc.  bottom line:

if infrequent:
    GOOD
else:
    SPAM
