Speaking of SPAM, I just watched the entire SPAM episode of Cailfornia's Gold with Huell Howser the other day. His interviewing technique is so,... um,... unique. lol

"But I don't like spam!"


A classic, enjoy.
at some point I have to wonder why admins are allowing the spam on the board to continue or why the member that keeps spamming isn't removed.
Just curious.. how come everyone is saying that this is spam? Does the product suck or something? When I first joined, I saw a lot of members have this lure and they do catch fish with this... so it's a legit lure is it not?

I also admit that I bought one but haven't really had a chance to use it yet.

Is everyone giving this company a hard time because they constantly spam the forum and going against forum rules or does the lure suck so much that it's annoying members on here?

Just curious.. ;|
I have no idea if it's good or not and I don't think it matters if it's good. The point is advertising a product on here. If all of us started doing that this board would be useless. Being an engineer I know that putting your link into boards that are relevant to the product you are selling will give you better rankings with search engines like google. In my opinion there is nothing wrong with discussing specific products on here but to blatantly post about your product repeatedly is spam.
I think its mainly the unprofessional way this person goes about advertising his product. Doesn't really contribute much to the SJB community and the only time he posts is to spam our freshwater board. Other forums monitor this type of spamming, which is why he mainly does it on SJB and not elsewhere.

I'm sure it works just like any bass lure on the market and its pretty creative I have to admit, but if the stupid thing lands upside down more than 25% of the time, when its not supposed to, its a pretty major design flaw if you ask me. Back to the drawing boards whatever your name is.

This is a classing form of spamming. He wants to have 'backlink' back to his site from a legitimate related site. That will bring up his site's score per search engines, which helps to rank his site higher in google, which might translate to more business.

Our responding to his thread is actually helping him.

Site mod...Please remove this.
Just so you guys know that this "guy" that you guys are hating on is a local guy who got a name for himself and his product by posting on this website. Sam Kennedy is the creater and is an ex 49er that lives and fishes all these local ponds and lakes you guys talk about. When I went to ICAST this year and saw the reaction to the bird and the way Dan and Sam conducted themselves around the biggest names in this industry I realized that these guys are legit. Now he made it to the cover of Bassmaster and the guys on the site where he started are cryin about him posting. I know Marce is happy to help local fisherman and their products same way he helped me. I find it funny that all the guys (except for one) that are talkin sh!t have only been on this site for less than a year. Have some respect and if you don't like it...don't read it!
Bassakwards, A lot of spam is actually for legit products. Viagra, and sex websites being at the top of the list. Lets review the posts made by flipinthebird.

48 Posts
35 Posts which were new topics advertising the product.
2 posts made on topics which he didn't create advertising his product and 1 of those was made by another user stating how great his product was.
11 responses to his own advertising posts.
The last response he actually made on any of his product posts was 9 months ago.

So please tell me given these facts how this is not spam? I really don't care if he's my next door neighbor and famous or lives in New York spam is spam. You say have some respect, yet where is the respect for members here that don't want to read advertising in the forum. Today flipinthebird and Coyote tackle, next maybe we should invite bass pro shops, calabasas, and every other person that has something to sell on here. Last but not least this website DOES have a classified forum. If you have stuff to sell they should post it in the appropriate forum where we are looking to buy something.

Just my 2 cents.

Ya it's spam, so what SPAM is delicious!!! The reason I don't like this guy is because he's a ex-49er!! Lol jk its actually good to see a local fisherman with an idea, create a lure and make a name for it nationwide. Flipping the bird..... What a name!!
I only like spam Hawaiian style in spam musubi. Yum!
Get a clue fellas! This guy has an actual legit lure that's proven to work not to mention (like the thread says) that it made it on the cover of Bassmaster mag. Oh and also they are a site sponsor... (8-|
So the thinking that he is spamming is wrong, it's more along the line of advertising and promoting the product to fisherman on a fishing website. If Marce had a problem with this then obviously it would have been taken care of long ago...

Well, if they are paying for it, that changes everything. I wonder if this site mentions somewhere who the sponsors are. A couple of other sites I go to make it very obvious who the sponsors are. After all they pay for the exposure.

Edit -> Yup, right at the home page of this site, which I don't go to.
the magic of the internet, facts not required to have an opinion!!!
Whoa!
This has kind of gone the wrong way. Truthfully, I was never really that bothered by the "spam", I just usually wouldn't read it. That is until one of the posts morphed into probably one of the best crabbing threads on this board. So in that tradition, I began posting up silly stuff in "the Bird" threads hoping the same might happen... Probably not the correct thing to do, but at least the threads weren't moving down the board without a single response. As I said before I respect The Bird Man for having a vision, and following through on his dream. That is a lot of hard work, and I truly wish him success.
And yes, I'll admit I didn't know he was also a site sponsor [red]. For that I apologize, and I would actually like to thank you for contributing (at least monetarily) to a site that we all enjoy.
I'm out! [green]
Hey Houla, were you at Almaden Res last weekend?
