I hope no one is offended. The thing about botspam is that it can be hilarious, buti t can also be sublime. I've mentioned before how much like freeform poetry the wall-of-text spams can be, especially like mid-sixties stream-of-consciousness stuff. Had to save this particular masterpiece beofre wendy consigned it to the hell from which there is no escape.

I'm not entirely sure how spamming a forum sells boots, either.

How many people cruise webcomic forums and say "Wow, boots, just what I was looking for!"

Then scroll down to the next ten posts and say "Wow, Luis Vuiton, just what I was looking for!"

I mean, how many people can there be out there like that? Somebody out there is buying these things. We have to stop them.

The story spam in the site problems forum is pretty interesting too.

But seriously, wouldn't spam advertising like this actually be the exact opposite from what the company wants? I would never buy Uggs or Vuiton anything and these bots make me hate it even more.

It's largely an SEO thing, as far as I know. People aren't clicking on these links, but Google's webcrawler is, and when someone types in "Ugh Boots" or whatever into Google, your rank on the list is determined partially by how many sites link to you (your "backlinks").

As the proverb goes: each individual coin has two sides. It indicates that you can not get everything you want like as the style and heat in a pair of shoes. We can conclude that the shoes you purchase are fashionable but not at ease or at ease but not Uggs stylish. So, you typically make options concerning manner and consolation when finding and getting footwear. But now, you can get style and consolation alongside one another from on type of footwear - Ugg boots!

I consider so many folks all know Ugg boots with the decades' growth. We know the comfort of Ugg simply because the fantastic Australia sheepskin. We also know the colourful designs of Ugg since the Ugg Basic, Ugg Ultra and so on. We also the vogue of Ugg simply because the exceptional visual appeal. But, do you know how to use your Ugg boots to shoe off your attraction completely?

As significantly as I know, the most worth of sporting Ugg boots is picking appropriate Ugg boots! You will become gorgeous and younger if have on a pair of ideal and acceptable Ugg boots. Deciding on appropriate Ugg boots must be primarily based on by yourself this sort of as your age, your character and your garments. You can pick out Ugg Common Tall if you are a girl. You can decide Ugg Classic Cardy if you are a female. You can select Pink Uggs if you are splendid. You can decide Dim Uggs if you are great. Ugg Tall boot is your ideal alternative if you have countless limited prolonged jeans. And mini Uggs are your decisions if you appreciate to put on skirts and seven-inch trousers.

Opt for your Ugg boots and footwear very well. I suppose the upcoming is picking acceptable outfits to go with your fantastic Ugg boots. Depend on the ugg previously mentioned details. Ugg Tall boot is your ideal decision if you have several restricted very long jeans. And mini Uggs are your options if you really like to put on skirts and seven-inch trousers. So, you can put on Ugg Timeless Tall and Ugg Ultra Tall boots if you don your denims. In addition to, I believe Ugg Traditional quick and Ultra small are all your alternative since they can make your legs tall and slim. Mini Ugg boots will make your beautiful and younger substantially if you put on them going with your skirts even mini skirts. At the same time, they will make your feel to taller.

This paper will be ok! This is a element of our subject about how to dress in Uggs. Through this interval of time, we will go on this subject matter. I assume this topic will be ugg a superior Seasonal reward to you if you like and don Ugg boots, right? Tomorrow, we will go on our theme, so you do not skip and shell out consideration on our website and our information. You will grasp lots of details on sporting Ugg boots!

That's why there's all the babble. It's the bots trying to make it look like the links are showing up in real articles or discussions, as opposed to just a page of links or something. Google can't interpret meaning, it just looks at the form, and most of the sentences are syntactically correct (basically, kinda sorta), they're just meaningless.

Good grief, is it just you, wendy, against all of these spammers? I'm tempted to offer my services as an admin to help pair back all of this nonsense. Every time I log in here, there another 10 spam posts.

I think you'd need more than one person helping. I think there's over 2,000 'new' members that would need to be deleted before the problem will start to be controlled. Seriously, look through the members list. Their user names aren't that hard to spot.
