    Every time I make a post it says Atlas Shrugs has been pinged :eek:

    I am thinking that because I used one of their links somehow they have got me tabbed.

    What is going on?

    OK, am thinking that someone pinged many threads with the Atlas Shrugged page. The page kind of looks spammy to me.

    Thank you MeBelle, my ignorance. I had never paid attention to that tag thing before. I particularly noticed it as Atlas Shrugs is a site which has only come to my attention since the Norway terrorism.

    Still not sure exactly what goes on with this tag and ping. I know it usually has something to do with search engines but would assume that in this instance it was something to do with one or more posters wanting to connect with atlas shrugs :dunno:
