I disagree. Think about it: imagine I told you as a friend how I was at
some pub yesterday and enthusiastically rave about how it was totally
awesome and that you should go there, too. Now, in the one case I told
you this because I'm honestly convinced that it would be fun for you to
go there and that you'd like it. In the other case I did it because the
owner paid me for it. Really no difference? I don't think so.
