    No, we're talking about posts like this one:
    http://www.marksdailyapple.com/forum...tml#post645742

    which have no link. They just say the same thing over and over again in different threads. I'm not really sure what the purpose would be.

      • The trick to understanding the no-link spambots is that there's no link YET. But once they get their foothold with hundreds of linkless posts on the site, then they come back in and add a spam link to their sig, or automatically edit the posts to include it.

        As a result bam, they have successfully inserted hundreds of spammy links all across the site, whereas if they did it as they go along then in the average forum, they would get caught and zapped after just a few posts.

        (that assumes they moderate these forums for spam at all... I keep reporting it but I've never noticed anything or anybot actually vanishing.)

          • I've had a stiff neck for over a week. Now that the stiffness has lessened, I have a very sore lymph node on the right side of my neck, that hurts even more that the stiffness. ow

                • My GotD: "health care professionals"

                  No, I did not mention food in any way. But even if I were, I doubt they'd hear me. WHY do doctors, and their assistants, insist on cutting people off mid-sentence?!? I'll get maybe five words out and they'll ASSUME the remaining twenty words and then respond to their assumptions! I swear, I get cut-off mid-sentence MORE by doctors and "health care professionals" than by anybody else, including my kids.

                  Today, I yelled at a doctor's assistant over the phone (and then started crying out of sheer frustration), partly because it was a bad day to begin with and she just added that last straw, but mostly because she told me the SAME thing every other doctor has told me, and would NOT listen to me when I told her just that. EVERY SINGLE DOCTOR (gp, paediatrician, psychiatrist, counsellor) tells us (me and my daughter) the same damn thing, even after we tell them it's already been tried and it DIDN'T work! And yet, they seem to have this idea that because it's now coming from the hallowed lips of a "health care professional" who's been at it "since 1982" that it's suddenly going to work THIS TIME?!? I don't think so, bud!

                  And this is why I avoided doctors since living on my own, and having kids. But now, 16yo daughter's school is requiring doctors' notes for all her absences. And even after I tell them how many, and what kinds, of doctors are involved, they still ask me what's going on, and why isn't she in school, and how can we get her to come to school. UNTIL YOU CAN FIX HER MIGRAINES AND HER DELAYED SLEEP DISORDER DO NOT ASK ME THAT STUPID QUESTION!!!!

                  I wanna rip hair from skulls, braid it, and then hang them with the braids!

                  • GotD: Having a completely inappropriate crush on someone. It's horrible on so many different levels. Professor/student, more than 25 year age difference, both in awesome relationships. I would never do anything and would stop any advances made by him if they were to occur. But holy sweet goddamn, the man just makes my heart race.

                    My professor was playing his guitar in the classroom while people were working and I was sitting a few feet away from him. I couldn't stop blushing and had this weird giggle fit. Acoustic guitar playing makes me swoon and I already have a crush on this man. So it was just too much to contain. I felt like I was five. Thankgod his back was to me, because I could not control it for anything.

                    STUPID STUPID CRUSHES.

                      So upsetting.

                            I've done this too, people look at me funny, since going primal, I've been more resiliant to the cold for some reason (probably the d3 I'm taking or something.)

                            GTF away from me and stop being my mother. kthx.

                              On vacation we were having a night-time group meeting. One of the girls piped in "Can we make this quick, I'm cold. We're all cold." (We were all bundled to our eye-balls, it was brisk) Every one of the guys and I said, "I'm not." Hmph- and they had the gall to laugh at me for putting butter in . . . everything.

                              • I try to be a really law-conscious driver when I ride my scooter. These days (in the cold and with probably some carb blockage) it only gets to about 26mph. All of the roads to work at 30mph so I'm not going THAT much slower than everyone else is SUPPOSED TO. But despite the double-yellow, I get passed. On days like today, I just want to veer into them and call the police and say they passed me and crashed into me. IT'S FUCKING WINDY AND I'M ON A SCOOTER. I HAVE LITTLE CONTROL WHEN THE WIND BLOWS. I'm sure many people don't realize how much the wind affects you when you're on/in such a light vehicle, but it really really does. A fucking MACK TRUCK passed me. And a mini van tried to pass me IN THE MIDDLE OF AN INTERSECTION IN FRONT OF A POLICE STATION.

                                I refuse to ride on the edge of the road. I have a license plate. I am not on a bicycle. And I am not going so slow that you are going to get to work late/that would not be my fault anyway.
