    Whats going on there??

    Hey gang.. You guys know, as a noob I'd like to understand as much as possible of whats going on.. not just code.

    So why has "babank" just smashed out 17 posts about Marriage/relationship counselling in HTML??... What is he hoping to gain?...

    There aprox 3mins apart and for exactly 1hr.. so clearly on a mission... Im pretty sure the mod's will spot it.. dump the post and mybe him to..

    So what was the point?...

    It's called spam. And the point is usually get people to visit another site

    With the side effect of getting deleted and banned here, resulting in a silly waste of effort on their part to get a few no-follow links here for a few hours at most.

    Hopefully not the same as me... You know what's worse than insomnia? Insomnia when your body things a day is 26 hours long!

    Well, that and I'm dotting the t's and crossing the i's on the move of my server to a new IP address in a new data center. wait... that's not right. Goblin logic; Rape the men, kill the horses, ride the women out of town?

    There do seem to be some pretty heavy levels of spam getting through; that or I'm misidentifying pointless poster magnets as spammers -- but then there's a reason I usually drop two thirds of India, a third of China, and half of Africa using ipTables from even being able to access my server.

    I have been seeing a lot of pointless "me too" and quoting existing answers in threads.

    It was a very compact answer. We should write, read and share content which is worth visiting, reading and sharing.

    ... and there's a perfect example of what I meant; just what does that Yoda-speak even mean?
