Why in the world would someone assume that an interest in Bible software would make us a good target audience for a "Non Woven Automatic Slitting Machine"? Or a "Rocker Switch OFF and ON Momentary 10A"? It seems almost laughably wrongheaded.

The best last week was bees wax.  My dad kept some in the tool shed when I was a kid, about a 3'' square piece.  I believe he ran thread thru it - to what avail, I do not know, as I was young.

O.k., you got me there.  I might even pay to see that.

Maybe Logos is trying to prep us for their new product releases on April Fools.

Hard pressed to choose one. Can name a couple: Road Self balancing scooter, resin powder, and perhaps - just to annoy people: Silent Type CE Approved 500KW Biogas (methane) Generator Set

Would depend on the prices though... and also on whether dynamic pricing is enabled.

[not too interested in the bees wax or the napkin one... to each his own]

Strange that they would take those posts down so quickly, though. Surprise

As a scooter myself, I easily balance on 2 legs....but likely not on 2 wheels.

It is largely not about us, the FL forums are an opportunity that is part of a bigger context. These spam posts contain tags and hyperlinks intended to boost search engine ranking rather than target human readers. So when people are searching for this stuff on Google etc., these specific products will show up higher in the results list. That's why they will never go away and we must learn to live with them here, and embrace them when they fill our inbox, it is helping someone in the world, just not us.
