We do see such "interesting trends" when we have promotions in various forums. To a certain extent your observations are absolutely correct and we try our best (really, we do make an honest attempt) to keep this down.
But it does happen. as the saying goes "May we live in interesting times ahead". Thanks.
ps: We do encourage that you post such topics in the Javaranch forum and not in the Meaningless Drivel forum, afterall this is a meaningful discussion and is related to the site. Thanks.

I thought the same ! I thought "Wow, no more Pojo questions this week". Today, I replied to a guy asking for the Table of Content of the JBoss At Work
But I must admit that I actually do go to a forum where I usually don't go, just because there is a promotion. I'd like to win a book
For example, this week we can win JBoss At Work. I have studied JBoss last year (I own another book), but never used it at work. If I could win a book, I could read again and keep in touch with JBoss. However, I do not ask useless questions, but instead I try to answer other ranchers' problems.
