...of members posting 1 line post for a thread and then returning to that EXACT same thread again and posting another one line statement. Dead One can look at posting times and it would say 7:36am. then 7:37am---off to reading another thread just to see one again posting at 1:36am and 1:37am. Is 2 sentence too much for one post or is one trying to attain or remain in the top 25% posters on the forum? What? I don't know about others, but this is VERY FRUSTRATING to see it repeatedly happen over and over again.  Maybe Todd can once again make a thread on this to stop it from happening as frequently as it's occurring right now.

HAPPY WINNINGS TO ALL TODAY!!!!!!!!!!

    I agree with you. It is very frustrating. This topic has been discussed before and the offending parties back off for a while (after complaining that it was not them). Then it starts up again.

    My suggestion is to not post the Top 100 Poster on the avatar. I am convinced some posters only care about the number of posts and nothing about the quality or the fact that they are wasting other people's time.

    Good luck,
    Jake

      Easy for you to say, since you're not a Top 100 Poster! Big Grin

      Both of you cannot beat the price you are paying (free), so a little frustration with other people's posting habits may just be the price you're going to pay.  If you upgrade you can turn on the blocking feature.  If you're a free member, well, you're a free member, so what's there to complain about?

        Todd, you can give some good replys, but that is one of your best.  I had decided to become a site paying member...anyway!

              Not complaining at all Todd...just stating a fact and asking the meaning of this!

              I didn't post this thread to start a huge disagreement/conflict so it'd it's best please delete this thread.

              I wish you all the best---

                I might post oneliners but it is usually to thank certain people for posting-I want them to know they are appreciated!

                    Listen, nobody should need to sit and worry about "Should I post a one-liner, or is it going to get me in trouble?"

                    Just post what you want!

                    99% of the people posting are not trying to do any harm, so just don't worry about it.  If somebody does something out of bounds, I usually just resolve it quietly through private messaging, so there is nothing to worry about.

                    Cheers

                      i'm a paying member.  no one worries about 1 liners.  what's annoying is persons who post and then 2 min. later add to that post.  not arguying - just telling you my feelings.

                      love to nibble those micey feet.

                        Just wondering if some folks know there is an edit button if you forgot to enter something it your post.

                         

                         Good Luck,

                          Maybe the issue isn't what other people do, but rather your reaction to what other people do. In other words maybe it's time to examine why you experience the feeling you do, when other people do the things that they do. Coffee
