I was actually surprised when I noticed that there wasn't any rule for NOT spamming in annoucements.

But, hell, at least it gives me a warning to stay out of the annoucements unless it's important.

I am the one and only legal spambot on this site, though it's too bad that the glory days of spam posting are dead and gone now.

It was bound to happen anyway. As the community gets bigger, in this case rebuilt, more out of control it'll get.

I fully respect Jack and the moderators for taking this difficult action that we all, myself included, put them in.

Again, in my opinion, it comes down to one simple word: "Yugoslavia"

No, that's not right, let me try again: *pause for dramatic effect* "COURTESY"

It's truly about common, basic courtesy and respect towards the other members of this community. All threads, but especially the important, update threads, are common, shared space and we must exercise due restraint and decency. It's essentially cleaning-up the space to allow others to feel comfortable actively participating in it. When a thread becomes monopolized by the same people with a need to reply on every single post and thus literally having every-other post be a comment by the same member, this is not sharing the space. Again there are multiple areas to engage in more fun conversation. To me I even encourage this as it gives the forums color, personality and simply life! No one is discouraging that at all; simply trying to steer it to the appropriate areas. In my opinion, pulling back the reigns on off-topic chatter truly will go a long way in inviting Matt for example to stay-longer and participate. I think we can all agree we put the moderators in a difficult position given how very busy they are, but I think I speak for everyone when I extend a sincere thank you for their time and effort. Simply put, these forums are too important to have it disappear.

I know when to behave.

No jokes, no quick quips, no one liners where serious threads are present. No topic changes or contuine one.

I'll just stay out of them if I get the urge to crack a joke.

Promise. Serioulsy.

All official topics in the announcement forums (excluding jokes or any strange ones I make out of a fancy of humor) along with discussions and other relevant topics will now be purged of further spam after a warning is given. Additionally thread creators may report spam in their own topics in the chat forums, should they have an actual serious chat.

This has gone too far.

It ends.

Now.



This does not include spam topics, those topic which creators make for silliness or otherwise spamming are left alone


You know, we should all be thankful to the Hormel company, as they could easily lawyer up and sue anyone misusing the term "Spam" of which they own the Copyright.

I often love to leave a post in every thread that touch my interests, which means I'm involved around the topic.
But even if some of my posts in info threads can be in a funny twist, I'm not typing without discuse the topic.
I also dare to say that I never trolling with a purpose. (which would mean, "I am" a troll).
I'm trying to behave.

I also just joined for some days ago so this "Spam" that's on topic I've not been involved in. I think... :P

However, Volvox usually does this anyways.

Also, I give one big <3 for anti-Spam legislation. Or something. Like that.
