When this subject has come up before, some have answered with
"These can be informative. Post them only once and with the
absolute minimum information, essentially, just the name of
the product, a *concise* description of what it does, and a
URI to where more information can be found. Mark it clearly
as an announcement."
Some marketing groups have a list of places to send these
announcements (say, SPAM) and don't consider the local
rules for postings. That is irritating, but deleting the
occasional nuisance is easier than deleting the umpteenth
thread of posts protesting the nuisance.
Path of least deletions...

> It helps me pick up on the existence of tools I might otherwise be unaware
True, though it is better to hear about tools from experts in this group and
not from a commercial posting.
