Well spotted! Yes, once alerted, management banned the spammers: their thread disappeared with them.
I still can't see "what jacket you are wearing today"
I have no idea what happened...
I'll miss you @Trenchfriend , and @casechopper , et al.
I actually figured it might've been that but that's some really poor attempt at trolling. I mean, all the idiotic OP could have produced would be a thread filled with useful info. Heck, I learned of a company I didn't know about thanks to it! If it was a troll post, it was made by a really, really dumb person. Which would explain it as only a completely dull individual would find humor in doing something like that.
I read it as a marketing attempt (albeit a very, very poor one) because the second poster named several dubious jacket manufacturers and linked to a website where these masterpieces could be purchased for a great price. I had never heard of any of these brands, nor did I click the link.
I agree with Monitor that after the opening gambit it was turning into a typical biker jacket thread where Vanson, Langlitz, Lost Worlds, etc. were emerging as the crowd favorites.
I copy pasted the link on my browser, and it is just one of those leather costume jackets, now it makes sense when in the what jacket you wear today thread they talked about how cool a jacket worn by a video game character...probably in the link that costume would also be available, most likely one entity puppet playing two user names.
We'll have to look into that; I'm still seeing the wjywt thread; unless it was temporarily down for cleaning?
Yes, it seems it was either two posters, or one who had registered two accounts, trying to push their link on here. A lot of us didn't spot that and treated it as a real post. Kinda funny to think it backfired like that.
I've been reading this all day......
Agreed. I was suspicious enough to follow the link "Kathy" had posted. There were a whole bunch of leather jackets offered for sale at low prices. That raised my suspicions even further. I contacted the company and found out the jackets were made in Pakistan. At first I was told they were made in Italy. Then I was told the company was based in Texas. Then I was told I could only communicate with them by email (had been using the chat feature on the website). I guess the person I was communicating with knew I was on to them. Wasn't going to waste time sending them an email, and mentally filed it away as a scam of some sort to be reported later if anything else developed. I never saw the posts others mentioned about two "members" posting and then liking each others' posts. When I came back this morning it was all gone. I knew then my suspicions were probably correct. Then I saw this thread, and that confirmed it.
Wish I could ...mods!
I'm not seeing it in the thread list, either. I can't find a reason why, but I featured it on the front page for now.
FWIW, I see the "What Jacket..." thread in my list today and seem to remember seeing it there the past couple days, too.
So weird. When I'm logged out it shows up!
But then when I log back in it's gone again.
It isn't even on my homepage when I'm logged in, but there when I'm a guest.
What did I do wrong?
How can I fix it?
Banned for not posting enough of your collection?
Haven't posted enough of your jacket collection...maybe clear the cache on your browser?
I wonder if you didn't inadvertently choose to ignore the "what are you wearing today" thread. I know it is possible to ignore posts by individual members, not sure if it is possible to an ignore an entire thread...
@ton312 the collection aint what it was .
I did use a few of these *** when I posted in the WJAYWT thread right before it disappeared. Maybe that got me blocked. It wasn't for language. Just for an aside.
I have an email in to management, but no fix yet.
