I don't think this actually is spam. kiwia's solo entry is for Arrowtown near Queensland Lakes in NZ, which is where the company behind the linked website is based. Harshness thy name is lyx :D

Well, the entry did not yet exist when I wrote my comment. Seeing a multitude of blog entries from new users with some vaguely map related text and including one or several links to commercial websites got on my nerves, apparently.
So, I apologise for calling "spam" what might be an innocent blog entry.

I apologise if my entry does look like spam, but I was trying to figure out if I could add the business i represent like in Google maps for small businesses.

No harm done, I hope. Did anyone mention yet that the "about us" link at the bottom of your page is broken? Should probably go to the same page as the "about" link on top.
Now, can we (the OSM community) learn something from this? Maybe we need a text like "Help, my business/street/village/whatever is missing on the map! What can I do?" in some prominent location on the main page?

You can, Kiwia, but please consider adding other landmarks as well. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't added places of employment to the map myself.
