    Didn't make that particular connection, but yes welcome, and I don't think anyone, (who cares), takes anything you say about football seriously.

    Who rattled his cage? Seems pubs are being added again after the best part of a year.

    Nearly every time I go to look at it there are pubs with those gobbledegook advertising posts.

    BITE not loading tonight, which is a bummer as I'm wanting it to get some historic contextual info for my latest batch of reviews.

    Somebody put a shilling in the meter...

    Hasn't been loading for a while. Seems to be doing PuG a favour. When cross-checking pub info on Google, my impression is we're a lot higher up the pages, often in the first half dozen suggestions.

    Apparently they are undergoing a site migration, so unable to log in for the time being.

    Well spotted.

    That is quite interesting, they must be making some significant code changes for it to be taking several days.

    Do you think they would be doing something to prevent those spurious adverts that appear as reviews?
    Is there a reason (preferably in straightforward terms) why they don't happen here?

    I doubt that would be a priority. My guess is that they may be changing the way all the data is stored on the site, which would be a lot of work but ultimately would make no visible difference to the site. It would potentially make it easier for them to make changes in the future.

    Ok, the spam adverts that appear on BITE contain web addresses. I'm not certain but I think in the early days of the site they probably turned into actual links, after that point the site will have been marked as one that could be spammed and so it keeps happening.

    That trick has never worked on this site, I can see examples of spammers trying back in 2006, found out it didn't work and gave up.

    We do sometimes get that sort of thing posted to the forum. Probably every few months or so.

    Back up again now, with no discernible changes (and the Experian 2010 rosette still on display)...
