because i just got kicked off another board (ammo brass trader forums) for post whoring after i posted a "LMAO" reply. I mean i dont usually post +1 or "congrats" posts type stuff but LMAO? i mean geez thats a legit reply for the most part. What say you? I kow alot of guys post in every congrats thread or add tons of "cool gun" replies and thats fine by me, but where do you draw the line?

I draw the line when 1 word replies make up 75% of your posts.
But I've been told I'm too forgiving. LOL

I don't think +1 or lol or any of that kind of stuff is post whoring. I mean I post stuff like that all the time, but I really don't care about post count. Honestly I don't get why anybody does...it's not like a bigger post count makes you more potent in bed or something.

I consider stupid crap like when people post a comment on a video or something and just say something stupid like "first post" or some crap like that. Basically, if it's just garbage that isn't relevant to anything then it's post whoring.

If what they have to say is not related to the topic at hand or not related to where the thread has gone then yes... but saying +1 or LMAO or any other shorthand way of getting point across or agreement with others across is fine by me!

Re: What do you consier "post whoring"?

I can't believe that a board is so petty as to monitor post whores. Honestly! This is the freaking INTERNET! How incredibly arrogant it is to think your own actions are better than someone else on the INTERNET! It's the damn INTERNET people, not church! And to worry about something so stupid as a one word post? Forums like that are so sickening it makes a guy want to puke.

So worried about post whoring there is a very simple solution. Very simple. Shut the damn post count off! End of problem. Then they can get back to trying to eliminate porn and swearing on the internet.

I forgot to add a sarcasm emoticom to the ridding the INTERNET of swearing and porn. I always get a kick out of that one. People think they can "fix" people by not allowing such things on the forums. In reality a quick giigle of Free Girls qwill yield you all the 'tang you can handle and then some.

Re: What do you consier "post whoring"?

Ok, this is a silly question, but what is post whoring?
posy whoring is postin bunches of replies with no meaning to the topic at hand or frivolous +1 stuff, etc. we arent har don it around here cause it hasnt got out of hand yet but places liek arfcom, gunsnet and (appernetly brass trader) are hard on it. its all about inflating your post count.

1. post whoring

To post on message boards for the sake of posting, to post useless things to raise your post count.

Sorry SW didn't realize you had answered the question!

Re: What do you consier "post whoring"?

Anyone ever wonder why boards even have a post count? I find it completely meaningless personally. People relying on an arbitrary number to decide if a persons message has merit are likely going to be disappointed more often than not.
