We do not generally censor people for being loquacious Happy Bots are another thing but they usually post lots of links with keywords for SEO purposes these days.

That's nice to keep in mind. I was starting to feel stifled and uncreative. My game making tends to be smooth when I get to talk everything out. It is weird like that.

I here women tends to talk and do not really expect you to do something. They just need to emote.

I talk and I hope people reply so I know someone is there haha

Well, it depends on how appreciative you are to be a guest. I am grateful to be here so I do not like to or will I trespass. If I go it would be at my freewill. If I stay I hope I am an invited guest. After all, I look at it this way, if it were my home how would I want my guest to behave! I would want my guest to respect my place and not make a mess out of it. So I hope that I am extending the same courtesy to you especially the owner of this place. Thank you for having me...

There is a difference between being a human guest and using the boards as they are intended, and being a robot that only creates automated posts to random links. This thread is about identifying the robots and cleaning up their mess.

Happy I understand now. Thank you for clarifying that. I often misunderstand and for some reason I am also misunderstood. Crying

I assume the links in user profiles are not indexed by search engines?
