    Spammers do the darnest thing.

    This week, one made a sweet nothing post, I almost ignored.

    By accident the ad software linked a word in an otherwise hidden spam, intended solely to jack up Google hits....some say white font is frowned on by Google. If so, the spammer was completely wasting his time.

    He's in Banland of course.

    Just one more thing to look out for.

    I would have seen it plain as day, with my text-only forum-reading
    browser environment. Some GUI browsers *used* to have options to do
    useful things like ignore page/text colors and use what I set, and
    turn off CSS, and the like -- those features seem to slowly be
    disappearing, but here we see a prime example of running a very
    simplified environment wherever possible.

    Why would white even be a choice for font color when that is the background color.

    Because the forum could change theme where the background could be black.

    Anyone get the impression that as insanity increases, so does persistance? :D :eek:
