Anyone here get the feeling we're coming close to spamming the boards again? It has not been long since my last post here...and already the list of new messages on this board winds into the second page. Half (maybe more) of them I don't even glance at.

So what do you think? Are you guys feeling the spam again or not?

No not realy, now it seems that people are resuracting dead threads.

Yeah, I hate it when old, long dead, and often pointless threads are resurrected. Things are maybe getting close to spamming again, but I'm beyond caring now....the death of stimulating conversation has already passed.

>>> the death of stimulating conversation has already passed.

You could always start one...

>>> Are you guys feeling the spam again or not?

A number of people "left the board", the spam feeling dropped...

>>> people are resuracting dead threads.

Something we have debated for a while is whether threads older than "n" days/weeks should be closed, but the general consensus was "no". I find these old threads being dragged up very tiresome as well.

I could I guess, but I'm not really in the mood to get all deep and meaningful at the moment...

Maby dead threads should be moved to the undead-board?:D

Well could you at least suspend the poll priveledge? Or maybe just let anyone have a poll, but they have to clear it with a moderator first?

That would certainly cut down the spam....I mean, once again, the last new thread here is way back on the 2nd page. That's really terrible...

I think a few reasons would be 1: some people can't get it through their heads not to ask personal questions on the GD board! Use a frikkin PM, people. Common sense. duh. 2: Polls. People think billions of polls like "best commercial" are funny. I find them aggrevating as anything. Eh, that's all I can really think up right now...

Or better yet... make all polls expire. (BTW I am in complete agreement with you Ken... I was literally just thinking the same thing.)

People are going through the entire list of messages and answering polls which is pushing them back up in the 'recent' list.

I also like the 'undead' idea only it could be a dead board instead of undead.

>>You could always start one...

I tried with the antimatter stuff (which got pushed into non-existence... but even you, adrian, just replied a short post stating to do a search on it. I don't want to do a search on it... I just hoped that people would have something (anything) to say about it (whether it be wrong or not or even mystical speculation... like antimatter is going to be the DOOM OF US ALL!!!:):)).
