    INEZ: One always dies too soon - or too late. And yet one's whole life is complete at that moment, with a line drawn neatly under it, ready for the summing up. You are - your life, and nothing else.

    Look guys, I know this is an off-topic forum, but I don't feel explicit spam threads are appropriate. There are far more constructive ways to increase your post count-As I said in the last post in that thread, you can just dredge up the one word story.

    Anyway, this is Watchtower stuff, so that's where it's going.

    this is just a pointelss spam topic that will make it harder for people to find real posts right?

    But Seeing as im here.
    what does BKS stand for?

    Any way Im shure theres better things to do, Other than spam a forum,
    Cos really if its genuine spam the thread will probably be removed any way,

    So it would be nice if you dint waste ppls time, becous some 1 has to remove spam.
    and it really just messes up the forum.

    You want a bigger post count?

    Go to the backroom. Form a solid political leaning - right, left, doesn't really matter - and entrench yourself, defending your positions no matter how many people disprove them outright. Oh and make sure you're offended easily.

    Don't worry, no offense taken. I know what you mean, there's plenty more threads in the frontroom where you could spam subtly (sp?) .

    Craterus, spamming there is fine with me. Subtle spamming is a bit risky, as the frontroom is also used by others who try to get a chat going about music for example.

    I read the first post in that closed topic and I agree very much with the author: keep spamming in one topic. I'm not a Tavern regular, but constant (subtle) spamming, just for spamming, in other OT topics will finaly become an annoyance for others and cause tension.

    I'm not sure how many dedicated spamming topics are running now, but there should just be one active to prevent other topics to roll off to page two.

    Good point, I know what you mean... I don't think subtle spamming is the right name for what i mean but I think it's still unnecessary.

    Is there any actual gain in spamming though?
    I like a good debate but sometimes this means topics tend to stray, so i try to controll my self,

    but what actual gain is there from spamming?

    or do people just spam, To annoy people?
    and if so then i dont see much use in having 1 thread for Spam, becous that would defy the whole purpouse of spamming.

    If you hadnt noticed Im trying to get a deabate about the relivance and pros of spamming here,
    becous i see none.
    so logically,
    All the spammers should come here and debate this point with me,

    Which in turn will give this thread a meaning (well atleast for me)

    i mean its already got me a warning,
    So may as well try to get some sort of rational debate from it,

    I like the sound of that debate. I think the main reason for spamming is to raise post count..

    Do whatever you like to do as long as it doesn't hurt/bother someone else.

    Debate about politics, spam, have a chit chat about cows, your favourite color, game, book, hobby, the best discovery in the 20th century, crashing PC? Just do it in the right place.

    Spam that remains in one topic shouldn't bother anyone (a one word story with swear words will have a very short expected lifetime here though). In the past we had issues with spam because the flatfile PERL forum couldn't really pull it off, crashed and was even completely shut down by the host.

    If that thread is really special to people, I'll re-open it. I just thought that maybe everyone's needs would be better served by, say, the old one-word story being bumped.

    There's a new one word story? Those are a type of fun spamgames. Leave that one running and decide about another spamtopic later: Free spam for all, word association or anything else.

    One active spam topic at a time only please.

    One word story spam is something I dont see as spam,
    Ive always thought of spam as, An uneducated Bunch of jibberish That people just Fill up page after page with Jut to Agrivarte people.

    So i guess people are telling me that spam can be sencible sentances but have no relivance to any 1 els?

    For instance

    If i said.

    I can fit 16 cow hides In to 1 suit case that would be spam ,

    but

    I could also state,

    If you could walk on water, and you walked continuously around the earth on the equator East to west or west to east (not north to south)
    That you woul Never see a solicstice Summer or winter, Becous your avarage walking speed would mean That you would be keeping up with the worlds rotation and there for the sun would always be in the same position

    And this would also be spam Becous its irelivant data Even though thought provoking

    ?

    I think i will go and reasess My View of spam.

    As long as it's kept in one topic, people don't really have reason to get annoyed with it. One walks in, determines it's pure spam madness and leaves.

    It's a different case when that happens in normal discussions.

    BKS, if I may respectfully, I would suggest to bump the old one story thread. That has history in it! Leave the other spam thread locked.

    Keep spam contained in one topic. I also don’t like they way Watchtower became a place to spam lately, this is highly unproductive. I would politely ask people to restrain from spamming this part of forum.

    A good few discussions about forum administration discuss closing topics once it hits 10,000 replies. I haven't really noticed side effects yet, but closing the 11,016 replies one word story and continuing with (it in) the new one would have my vote.

    The one word story is a fun way of spamming. There are also other games though, like word association.
