Default What is with the posts with 1 or an incomplete sentence?

I feel like I'm wasting my time clicking on them. What is the point of it anyways? Is it some kind of fnord, or you are not cleared to know that kind of thing? It really ticks me off that this garbage is on here. Is this supposed to be a secret code or something? As far as I'm concerned , it should be concidered spam. When I joined this forum, I didn't think I needed to know a secret code. And don't give that Illuminati garbage. I'm seriously considering not posting on this forum anymore ,and maybe not going on it anymore. Please respond to this as soon as possible. Thank you for reading this.

Then why is it here? Why hasn't it been eliminated long ago? Does anybody have any idea of why anybody would post incomplete sentences? There doesn't seem to be any point to it.

Spammer reasons.

They get deleted within a day or so. The posts themselves seem to be deleted instantly by the filter bots.

Because Markov chains aren't that smart.

Presumably search engine optimization.

Note that SJGames has a policy of not explaining their anti-spam measures in the clear. I guess you could call that "Illuminati garbage", but it is mostly just good security procedure.

We have a relatively small forum staff, mostly located in North America, and there are times when none of us are looking at the forums to stomp spam in a timely manner. It's annoying and we would love for the spammers to move on to other targets, but the spammers so far have not been terribly concerned with our desires.

So, please trust that we'll get to the posts as soon as we can. If it really bugs you, report the post with a cathartic message. And then just do your best to ignore the spam from that point.
