My question: Why do people write "poll coming" when they can just add the poll when they make the thread?

Oh my god this.

You pose a great question TS. I choose not to click their links for the same reason i choose not to believe i really am the 1,000,000th viewer on *edited out but probably too late oh god please this website's all i have!*.com

Now that you mention it i'm pretty curious. I'll click the next one that comes up.

Never, they monitor referals. They can see where visitors are coming from, and will return back to the places they're getting the most visits from. Thus, every time you click one of those links without using referal control, you're making more adbots come here.
#21
The idiots that keep clicking the links are the reason the adbots keep coming back.

Oh? What did he get banned for? Inducing mind melting rage in another politically charged thread?

if people didn't click them they would stop doing this bullshit


That's just plain wrong.

If ug updated its captcha system for registering they would slow down. But they will never stop, for one word: Google. Google ranks links for its pagerank system, so without clicks they still bot links.

Did he know it was an adbot thread at the time? I'm willing to bet he didn't.

I just realized, I used to have that gundam action figure that one of the bots was advertising today!

OT:I always click to see what shit they have, the one who posted the link with all the shoes and clothes intrigued me though. I was really tempted to try and buy a pair of Jordans from that site, but i figured at $35 theres no way in hell it was legit

The ones that disguise ads as youtube links are pretty cool. Also the ones that actually make a legitimate profile are nifty.
