thats how you make an architect baby...?

the possibilities are limitless as is her ability to continue on and on with a sentence just by adding a few random words, of which there are such superfluous movements, just like the sands of time running through the streets, while throwing a shadow on the highway, of time, where time does not exist....hey! I think Ive got the hang of it now!

I've gone back through a lot of her articles. They do look like machine translations at first, with a very common theme throughout. All the ones I read were adverts for the yacht cruises a company is selling.

Perhaps we may find out the writer 'herself' is nothing more than a virtual character.

To be fair, the name looks a bit made up, too.

Imaginary figure producing spun content as link bait for the yacht website in order to try and game googles algorithm for higher rankings. Shame that idea was busy about 3 years ago by google.

I have noticed that the home page articles in general are now mostly ads and a load of rubbish.

I've always wondered what the front page actually does. I can't say I've ever clicked on an article, and it doesn't sound like I'm about to start.

I didn't even know it was there for a long time.

It used to be mostly personal stories written by members.

So, we've got a member, who may not be real, who may not even live in the ME, being highlighted on the front page with a post that is nothing more than advertising masquerading as tourism writeup.

Guys excuse me; it is a forum not for fun and criticizing. Your non professional attitude is reflecting your mentality indeed. If you cannot give positive feedback to motivate others than at least try to be respectful.
