Exclamation Manipulative "Marketing" In Forums

With something very similar going on in the community
thought this story would help open some eyes.

Hopefully, some of the trusting sheeple won't get Snaked,
Snake-bit, or blinded by B.S. after reading this.

Zap isn't smart enough to do that - before or after the giant tick sucked out his brains.

Now you're just being preposterous.

As preposterous as drinking a nice cool refreshing Coca-Cola without it putting a smile on your face, because we all know Coca-Cola will put a smile on even the meanest face around (Steve Wood).

Coca-Cola, an American Tradition for generations, and for generations to come. Buy some today, and buy some more tomorrow.

NO! Just a totally off-the-cuff remark that just happened to pop into my head about the refreshing taste of Coca-Cola, the taste that can't be beat, the taste preferred 10 to 1 by the 10 people out of 11 that prefer the taste to the one taste the other one prefers.

Buy some today and see if you agree! If you don't, it's likely you're defective.

Seen that on other forums, Buick, Vettes, Mudstangs, and Hotrodders, I think it starts off with someone signing up, saying high and simple link then as time goes by they keep dropping in with other links and what not, inviting people to see this vendor or that one, which pretty much amounts to spamming the boards.

It looks like they started a server to host vids or somthin but to get the word out they hit the boards with copy/paste greetings and all hell broke loose from there.

It looks like a couple of vigilant (non-Admin) members caught on immediately.

The owner(s), admin & moderators...not very pro-active in getting rid of them until after seeing there was little $$$ to be gained. The couple of vigilant members deserve credit for standing-up, and especially in that environment.

Maybe they'll also catch on to the "Kluck & Kobain" schtick eventually, eh?

Or else they'll get banned for trying...Kobain is a vendor, after all.

(PowerMelissa was not equipped with the vendor "Protect-O-Shield")
