..by which I mean the posts which appear in some topics, always by a new participant, and which make little sense in their odd phrasing or in relation to the topic. (I'm not referring to the lengthy, badly disguised promotional ramblings with embedded links selling phones or sports stuff).
A recent example:
'magma' posting 'well what is the agenda for this meeting' on the book club thread recently.
I wondered if these are placed simply to draw attention to a link, but there isn't always one included. So, what are the posters objectives?
