How much of this thread should be in Meaningless Drivel?

Post by jdaw1 » 23:03 Mon 25 Jun 2007

How much of this thread should be heaved overboard to Meaningless Drivel? (Clue: “none† is not the correct answer.)

Yes, QdN LBV is definately a cut above anything I've seen so far.

I think the remainder of the list should remain a mystery until someone hits the relevant target :wink:

I wonder if we will hit the 1,000 posts before the end of our 1st week? What time did you launch the site on Wednesday?

Unfortunately it isn't possible to heave parts of a thread from one place to another. So, when a thread goes off topic we either live with it or delete the whole lot. My vote goes to living with it, especially if it isn't attached to a serious port thread.

It is possible to split threads; at least, I’ve seen it done

I noticed the same phenomenon on another site we all know of yesterday. Are there some gremlins at work here? Are all the guests coming from the same IP address? Could it be google's spiders crawling all over the site?

Is this site suddenly popular or is it the work of spambots?

Its just surged again. And Julian, I think that means we could be back on topic, as this may be the Google Effect?

I witnessed this at a new site we launched at work. My bet goes to google hits building up it's indices. Everyone post the words VINTAGE PORT 500 times simultaneously now :lol:

We now have 66 guests - there aren't 66 people in the world interested in port at the same point in time.

Batten down the hatches, load the guns, launch the lifeboats - incoming Porn :shock:

It's the Yahoo crawler, which is building indices for its Search Engine. All of the IP addresses are from the same root and they are all Yahoo crawler ids.

Sorry guys - not real, it should stop soon.

Phew, for I while there I was afraid there were far more port lovers in this world than we previously knew of.

It was quite funny watching what the different guests were up to. Several of them seemed obsessed with Meaningless Drivel.

Back on Subject!!!

Being rather bored, I started trawling through Google with the words The, Port, and Forum, in the Search Bar.
It took until the 9th page to appear (Jdaw1's Placemat reference) So we're in there, but could do with being a lot higher.
