Because these lists don't pre-screen posts.
Because these lists have more subscribers and re-publishers than any
other lists.
Because the people who post these messages aren't interested in
advertising to you or I - they are SEO[*1] companies looking for (and
getting[*2]) backlinks that they sell to their clients as a service that
supposedly[*3] elevates their ranking in search results.

Please don't repost their details - you only help them scam their
clients and encourage them to spam the lists. They lower the value of
the internet which is bad for everyone.

[*1]in this case - Scum of the Earth Organisations
[*2]until enough people contact Google, Yahoo, Bing, Yandex, and others
and report them for spamming the lists. eg.:-
[*3]until Google penalises them for spamming and link farming - by
relegating them off the first pages of search results.

Happy New Year
