    When I entered Shadowbet.com, some pop-up like thing was shown, about Shadowbet winning an Ask Gamblers award.

    Does this increase conversion or for what it's good?

    I'm not sure, but my guess is that they're just trying to grab people's attention in a good way, so as to start working with them. This is all that I could come up with...

    This isn't a bad idea, but if you have a pop-up blocker in place... :eek:

    A pop-up blocker would be awesome in this case. I don't think it's good for conversion at all.

    @RazorGamer - what a completely useless post. Seems anything you say these days is motivated solely to obtaining a link (even if it's nofollow, it's still a link). Same goes with your "Likes"...

    @Guard Dog - The GPWA is being spammed by this person, must we alos endure this agenda here too?

    Granted, AGD members can use the 'block feature'... BUT, that doesn't stop a member gaming the forum system...just sayin!

    Personally, popups don't bother me too much. Just as long as they disappear as quick as they came.

    I think that entity is a badly programmed BOT.

    I didn't realise that there was an ignore feature here - thanks for posting I've just used it on the silly bot!

    Spotted your comment over at the GPWA (crypto thread) with reference to these posts being conducted by a "bot".

    The more I see and read this horsesh#t (don't always login to forums, hence I see these posts), these posts are more often than not, re-spun dribble.

    Agreed the "block tool" saves the stress levels. However, my objections are centred on the fact that members here contribute to the forum. If it wasn't for contributing members continuing to support AGD with posts etc, then it would be a ghost town.

    I personally find it disturbing that a member flagged (by multiple members) as display "bot" like postings, is tolerated, at the risk of alienating members who actually contribute helpful and quality posts to AGD.

    RazorGaming (aka vtyunby65) has been banned from a number of mainstream forums. Why??? For spamming.

    Yet for some reason, this fact, keeps getting swept under the carpet.

    This member IMO is only rorting the system, and brings no genuine contributing benefit to this forum or others. The motivation to post is all about linking, and nothing more.

    One the very small and minute times this member decided to actually throw some input in, that information is always wrong. Reiterating, total horsesh#t.

    that is why I find GPWA and AGD have less value these days as more spammers and trolls join the forums, hence I rarely visit these nowadays as the quality of threads and posts is very low.

    It looks like he's giving just some random answers.

    Thanks for pointing out the ignore feature folks. Very handy in this case.

    @AussieDave It's funny how the user Razor ignores you :D.

    @TheGooner I don't think is a bot or at least not always because he used to contact me privately every month and asking if I got paid by certain programs.

    The strange thing I have noticed after taking a closer look to his website is that some of the programs he was asking about were not even promoted but at the time I was thinking that he could probably have more than one website so...

    I totally agree.

    You're right, but sometimes you have to be a bit mean to get your point accross that spamming forums with pointless crap and thanking every post you see is not what grown-ups do on a big persons forum.

    He seems to have upped his posting rate on here again of late. I've got no problem with people posting a lot, should be encouraged but at least contribute, the only time he actually does is posting contact details for programs/managers. My favourite spam post was on GPWA after saying he won't be going to LAC in a thread someone mentioned whether they'd be a bus between the venue and hotel, for King Spam to reply "I'm wondering the same thing myself". No you are not, you aren't going FFS.
    Maybe the answer is not let him have links in his profile/sig/my sites thing and watch him stop posting so much dribble

    They did that already. Apparently there was a reason for the removal of it, but nobody wants to share it with the public because it was "too personal".

    Some of the innocent spam, it's tolerable, but lately there have been misleading posts that can harm one's financial situation.

    Recent example is recommending those bulk traffic sites where you can get 100k+ targeted casino visitors for less than a 100$.
