The econ forum gets maximum spam. Why?

Because economics is a spammy subject.
Commentator on a picture with David Cameron and a Cat: 'Amazing what you can achieve with photoshop these days. I'm sure that used to be a pig.'

Commentator on Hillary Clinton: 'If Clinton is now what passes for progressive, maybe this country deserves Trump.'

Commentator on British parliament: 'All that talent in one place, where is Ebola when you need it?'

John Kerry on words: 'These aren't just words, folks.'

Mainly because Joey is the only maximally great guardian angel that stands at the gates to the econ forum. He trys his hardest to protect the kingdom of econ forum from the scum spammers but he has his hands full and is very busy so most slip through.

That's always been the norm... I wonder why as well. I guess maybe they think econ forum consumers are more concerned about getting information at a lower cost so that they can maximise their benefit more easily?

Lol, but it's still microeconomics, and I didn't like it even before I knew JMK, so the "lol's" amplification is a bit less.

*Lol.

Actually, *LOL[.], but "Laugh Out Loud" seems weird compared to "Laugh out loud."

Awww, but you shouldn't shut yourself off to the possibility. You could be the next Alfred Marshall! When I was 13, I didn't know anything about linguistics except what I was taught from ESL books. I thought I would like literature. Now I've realised that I don't like literature. When I read Dickens, I wasn't appreciating a piece of art; I was enjoying a gripping page-turner.

Most British publications don't capitalise letters other than the first of the acronym is intended to be read aloud as a word. Most American publications, by contrast, do tend to capitalise everything.

Fixed.

Just saying you should be more open-minded... Sometimes you don't know how much you like a subject until you actually try it. When I was 11, I actually attempted to read a Chinese translation of A Briefer History of Time. I didn't understand everything, but was nevertheless intrigued. When I was 14, when I was forced to take physics, chem and bio for a year, I realised how boring physics class was. My experience with economics is the opposite.

I need to know what specific point you need clarification on.
