    Is it just me or is there a rise in empty bs responses here by people who are trying to boost post counts? I've just noticed it more lately. Pick any popular thread and you will see dozens of responses with just a few words "I agree with you" "great post". In my opinion it really devalues this forum.

    When you're in a big forum, you can expect people to come up with spam posts. It comes as a bonus.

    As previously mentioned by another member, when you have such a large forum with many members, these short 4 worded spammy type posts are bound to show up.

    is the OP trying to increase the number of posts?
    What is the point of complaining about empty posts with an empty post :)
    BTW, what is SEO?

    we're in the lounge, man, posts have no count here.

    I do get a bit pissed off when I read the same "thanks, great post" responses when there is a "thanks" button, BUT sometimes I actually like to show my support with a few words rather than a click.
