    Yep. They are spam. Unfortunately I don't have the power to shift stuff around.

    That thread is less spammy than most other though, since you can't just keep posting what you're going every 2 seconds.

    Not to anyone particular, but...

    one second- you don't care about post count, and think it's meaningless

    and the next second- you crucify everyone who posts in the general talk section as spammers and say that we (they) have too high of post counts.

    If you don't care about your post count, you shouldn't care about other people's post counts, right?

    I never said they had too many post counts, when did I say that? No I mean people who complain about people 'spamming' to get more posts, and yet spam themselves, should try not to be hypocrites is all ;)

    well not to anyone particular, but...

    You hear complaints from a certain member about a certain member's post count, while the member who complains posts in threads like these spam threads and it comes off as hypocrisy...

    hypocrisy imo is just what it is.... Hypocrisy. And I don't think it's overrated when it's rightful to say it is.

    There's a reason why I've simply stopped posting in any thread unless it's 1) to have a legit discussion, or 2) to respond to a friend's comment or another poster.

    Also, Kakashi:

    This may come off as offensive to you. However, I feel that there's a huge emphasis on post count, and how having a bigger one is better. I really don't care. I just want the evidence of what I consider to be a shameful past (about a year's worth of spamming when I was younger :eek:) removed. I don't consider them to be "quality posts" at all, or contributing to the forum in any way, as opposed the posts I've made in the past few years. Obviously, I'm not going to impose this definition on other people, as what people post (and consider quality posts) is their own affair. However, I find that a LOT of the threads lately in this forum to be either ridiculous (and thus in spam) or simply not even worth the time to go through and respond to. I'm really sorry, but I'm no longer interested in what people are thinking, or feeling, or eating, or drinking, or whatever the hell the threads in the General Talk section are these days. It's the same post posted about 500x by the same people on the same topic. I'd sooner spend 10-15 minutes going through the actual fantasy/book sections and find a topic I consider worthy of debate, and having an enjoyable discussion with members thereof.

    I agree with you there. There's a lot of spam threads in the general talk section. If something has to be done, those threads have to be moved imo. Those are spam and don't belong in the general talk section. I've seen some members post there a lot, and they do it either because they are bored lol or just to increase their post count. yeah people make jibes at me because I sometimes post movie articles, but if they really think I do it for the post count. Shouldn't they be smart enough to realize I could do it much more effectively, posting in crap like threads like 'what are you doing now' as they do. It would save me a lot of time lol.

    Yeah and posting in threads like these would save me the effort to surpass the postcount you are referring to... But I'm not going to...
