Agree with the ignore button.  What I don't get is how they think this is going to get them business.  Or maybe the link is just a hack to download spyware.  But yes, I will ignore them.
The other threads did tend to have links and also be pretty bizarre.  I am not sure what to make of the whole deal, but something isn't right about it.  I am pretty sure they are not touring cyclists here to discuss bike touring.  What they are up to I am not sure.  I hope the moderators will delete the irrelevant posts and consider whether the 4 or 5 user accounts are legit.

Looks like the moderators did some cleaning up.  Thanks.

Jittery and tsuchinoko  are apparently still around.  I suspect we will continue to see the same nonsense from them.  Hopefully the mods will keep an eye on them.

I heard something the other day that made me hate ticks even more. 

In the USA, a small percentage of people who get bit by a Lone Star (ranges from South Central US to SE US) tick develop what is called "Alpha-gal syndrome".  This basically makes the human allergic to meat from mammals (beef, pork, lamb, etc.).  Bites from other types of ticks can lead to the condition in Europe, Australia and Asia. As a confirmed meat eater (sorry vegetarians), that would just suck.  At first I thought this was BS but sure enough, the Mayo Clinic has a blurb on it.

That would be horrible!

By the way Emmablaker looks suspiciously like another jittery.  First post, no real content, same weird avatar, maybe a link to some unrelated website coming from yet another first time poster?
