Hi Campbell Barton,

Many of the messages about coding are made by spammers to promote a
website. It's not visible in the mailing list but if you look at
original post in the forum you will see a link supposed to increase the
page rank of the advertised website.

In example:
===========================================================
Hello all,
What is the use of the pointers?Why they used?

Delhi Luxury Hotels
===========================================================
http:// bookdelhihotel .com/5-star-hotels-in-delhi.html
(Link broken on purpose)


I believe they are guys in an internet cafe working for a SEO agency. To
disguise the spam they try to post questions which are more or less
related to the topic of the forum.

They are particularly annoying because there are nice guys on the list
trying to help other users and the spammer makes them waste their time
for nothing.

Well, not always, the "pointers" thread could be useful for a beginner,
but others are so basic they would be hardly useful to anyone.

In the php forum they even asked: "what's the difference between php and
html?".


Regards,


Paolo
