    So one day I was in that section testing right? My title is simply "testing" or something like that, but yet I get like 25 people who read it. Other threads there get much more. It all depends on the title and who post it. So I ask you, with so many sections and so many things to do and read in the net, why do people click on those? Are there secret lotto numbers there you guys are not telling me or maybe there are naked women there [​IMG]. So what's your theory?

    It's cause people are curious. If you post a thread title that says "Don't read the first reply".

    Naturally ppl will click on the thread so they can read the first reply.

    OK, but most of the thread like mine simply said, "testing" or test and look at the number of viewers it got. I mean if that's all it takes to get someone to get curious, those SPAM deserves to be around.

    I think of it as the equivalent of posting in the Polls area to increase the post count; I can easily increase my read count, my imaginary one that is.

    Also, I await a thread like Trevor's.
