2 posts, 2 new threads and all we get is an advert. I am hiding the pies so that they don't get contaminated with spam.

What you mean to say that you haven't seen the spam and BBQ sauce pies already? They've got a big S on top to distinguish them.

I am not sure that the "S" is for spam on a spam and BBQ sauce pie. I suspectit is for "Not very edible"

BBQ sauce covers up the spam flavour. Making it marginally more edible.

"S" stands for Scone Pies.

A bit of a let down, I don't like any kind of spam (especially being non-carnivorous). I'd prefer lace curtains in the tree house anyone else?

This is an apocryphal post and just because its already been spammed today, but does anybody have a hub pages account?

I don't have a hubpages account, but after a quick look, if you are thinking of using one to generate a little income, it doesn't look like a scam. You make money from advertising and then spamming people to visit your article, increasing your hit rate and thus the site's advertising revenue.

Assuming that hubpages pay up (I have no knowledge whether they do or don't) and that you have the time to write the articles, the only cost of the small payouts would be that you, as a spammer, would be classified alongside traffic wardens, senior banking staff and U.K. M.P.s caught with their hands in public coffers.

There is a reasonable article here.

(word "look" added, to make the sentence readable!)

Thanks Skids, I have a dark dark confession. I became a minion of google a while back and already have a hubpages account :-) In order not to go to the 598th level of hell with the traffic wardens, senior bankers and all MPs MEPs and MSPs I refrain from posting my link on things that don't belong to me. (Gets a 103 levels discount! in with the insurance people, workers of public transport and little grannies with battering rams on wheels, I mean, shopping trollies)

I was curious as to who else scribes for the devil.

I gotta say, that's some of the oddest spam we've had... Not a mention of a knock off handbag to be seen!

I hope that we haven't scared jon burnett away. Perhaps if he re-posts and includes something other than a blatant plug, I might offer some pie after all.

Kitten, i guess it's got to be worse for them, it's already a fair struggle to manufacture things when you're blind!

As for handbags, I have a real foe fur one for sale... I killed my worse enemy using an elaborate trap involving two boiled eggs, a piece of string, a spoke from a wheel and a gratuitously vicious gerbil. Then I turned him into a bag, genuine foe fur!
