Full disclosure: In the last few days, we've made it onto a new Chinese spammer's hotlist, and we've been getting absolutely inundated with page requests resulting in a slow experience. We're shutting them down as fast as we can. Bear with us.

Idiots. How would anyone click on their stupid links if no one can get to the site?

They are spammers. 'Idiot' is as redundant as a spinnaker on a Formula 1 race car.

Well, a sail is a form of a wing, and those can be useful on fast cars. How about "as idiotic as a snooze button on a smoke alarm"?

Today's spinnaker ("balloon sail" as its Icelandic name translates to) is a specialised downwind sail. F1 cars don't have any downwind legs.
