I can understand why this was deleted rather than closed, but I wanted to preserve it, because Daphne's Blog rocks.

Amazing Person.

I wish to tell you about an amazing person.

Look, how he has restored his Subaru by himself! Photos show in what conditions he was doing that.
I think, that if this person appeared on a space station in a difficult situation, he would manage to repair everything!
But why he does this by himself? The same idea has occurred to me. There is only one answer – he just doesn’t have money for the repair workshop. For me the only fact is important - this person has not lost his heart and has not got rid of his car!

Are you just trying to sell a used car?

Yes. Always.

I really don't get this "SEO" industry.

This has to be the most gigantic waste of resources ever seen in human history.

But why he does this by himself?

But why you do this by yourself?

Answer in the please!

Wait, I've heard this one.

The answer is Jesus, right?

Because when there was only one set of footprints, it was Jesus who was restoring the Subaru, right?

Reno or Suzuki - no problems.
Every 2-3 days I was changing the cars… was not satisfied … Testes Reno… I was being assured that one cannot find a better car - it runs ok, no noise – but what a hokey-pokey!"

Testes Reno would be a good name for a band.

I heard that Subarumania gobbles donkeys.

I don't care about the spammy incoherence, I for one vote that we keep samara as a pet. Just autoredirect all their links to zombo.com. Please dadmumdad, can we keep 'em, can we can we, huh, huh?! Pleeeeeeeeeeease?

Another SEO turd from this cock is being posted to the blue in 3....2....

NO, peacay, put Samara back in the cage NOW!

you know, if we just got rid of search engines none of this would ever happen.

would it be worth it?

Truly, that is an amazing person. Thankyou.

Why is is flagged, what's so bad about this post?

Dazed and amazed, but still unphased. You? Crazed.

I used to miss this stuff when I lived on Eastern Standard. Now I know! Metafilter Europe has all the fun.

I can't connect the dots. Have I lost my mind? I'm truly lost. What is this about? Is Samara really trying to promote a website in MetaTalk?
posted by tellurian at 9:15 AM on October 9 [+] [!]

Still open? Wowser.

Samara's "website". Bizarro.

This rocks.

And by 'rocks', I mean, 'confuses the hell out of me'.

Don't anger Samara! You'll die in seven days!

Having perused Samara's website, I find we share an admiration for the nobility of the horse, so I now support her unequivocaly in whatever crazy shite she wants to pull here.
posted by Abiezer at 9:35 AM on October 9 [+] [!]

Ah! I see. On the other hand, (as sneakin has just mentioned), Daphne's blog rocks. I just we could have come across it another way.
On preview: I see 'rocks' may be interpreted in a few different ways.
