Default Am I the only one?

Am I the only one who gets the _______ episode ________ tv nonsense almost every morning? Are these serious posts? What's the purpose? Am I missing something?

I've been trying to figure out the purpose for it. What is it?

I know they're spam, but what is the reward for them making a post? There has to be something or they wouldn't waste their time.

It's their job. They get paid to spam.

I still get that it's spam and not trying to be a Richard but what is the payoff for spam? I just don't "get it".

I don't get it either. I don't understand how they keep getting banned and persistently keep showing up. Usually about 3 to 5 a day. All from the same geographical area....

You click the link and it takes you to a page that they probably get paid to send you to. Or it will get your system to accept a tracking cooking that will then show you ads on your browser. etc etc. Many reasons for getting you to visit a webpage. The PFF was purchased from Chris based on it's level of internet traffic. If you can get LOTS of people to come to your page then internet advertisers etc will want to pay big $ to get that page so they can advertise on it.
