non existent thread lunacy

Post by mrj » Mon May 04, 2009 2:44 pm

so i've been noticing this weird thing

when you get first screen on mb and it has a list of these recent threads that when you get into the forums don't actually seem to exists.

i clicked one of em when in that first screen and sure enough, the response was that the thread didn't exist.

always seems to be selling things too. is this like a bot or something, google ads gone haywire, or just another part of the seemingly ever growing conspiracy to sell me black market viagra and penis enlargement products.

posts by new users are held for moderation, so they exist but are hidden by default. the vast majority are spam. sometimes we clear them out quickly, other times we're rubbish and they linger for a couple of days.

well i never used to look at that page, but their constant offers of sexual enhancement products were to enticing to ignore any longer yanno.

well there was one today that said like "Juno something or other for sale for $450", and I went sick and then couldn't find the bugger. Then went back to the page, clicked on the link and it no existing.

foo's explan seems fair enough tho.
