    I'm searching now, posting names.... anyone who wants to join in, feel free... I'm tired of seeing them. I thought they were under control... but now I guess not.

    I know everyone is guilty... sometimes, something is just THAT awesome, but when you have 54 posts and 38 of them are less than 25 characters because they are nothing more than "nice post dude!"....

    I hope you are caught naked coming out of the shower by a rabid pack of AIDS infected pitbulls and this particular morning you decided to use " steak scented" shampoo.

    No. The last thing on earth that I want to read after I open a thread that registers as "new post" is a 2 month old thread that was bumped because some guy decided it was a "super cool share" and needed to let the rest of the forum know that he approves this message.

    Unless I'm wrong, this is the right place to moan and complain, so that's where I'm doing it.

    Wow. Does a thread you could ignore really rile you up this bad, or are just just trying to pad your post count?

    I agree, it is a little obnoxious but really AIDS infected pit bulls? That's harsh.

    I'll be honest, that shit kinda irks me too.

    If you got enough time on your hands to do all that, by all means proceed!

    You could also just hit the report button (the ! button) and type a brief note for us to review.

    Shit like this (the thankposts, not the thread opener) is why the forum was better off with post moderation.

    I feel so much safer now. 'There's a new sheriff in town' (Reggie Hammond ...aka Eddie Murphy) Quit reading them and actually do something useful.

    I hope in the middle of the night a crazed monkey with the the ebola virus climbs in your bathroom window and uses your loofah as a sex toy. Then, first thing in the morning, you wash your face with THAT loofah.

    Wait, does quoting comments count to my character count?

    I hate seeing them too. And since the Jr. VIP section is based partly on having a certain number of posts, it is even more discouraging to see. I also hate going to a thread that I think has new, valuable information added to it only to find a 'nice post, nice share, thanks, you rock, dood shut the fuck up' in it. Mad props to you if you have the time to go through the people's posts; would only suck if it's just done in vain. Perhaps something will come to your efforts though.

    To mdd345:

    First off, if you expect to be taken seriously, I don't think it is wise to be flapping your arms and saying things like "I hope you are caught naked coming out of the shower by a rabid pack of AIDS infected pitbulls and this particular morning you decided to use " steak scented" shampoo." . . . That is a rather obvious display of irrational behavior, wouldn't you say?

    Granted, I have also seen people who have been members here less time than I have, and they have post counts as high as 1400 to 1600 posts. And yes - most of their posts consist of one short sentence of less than 25 characters. Most likely, they just want to jack up their post count so they can get the pretty stars next to their avatar. Your statement (as irrational as it may have been presented), points out a problem, but it also presents a problem. . . .

    Is everyone supposed to walk around on eggshells and sit there and count the characters of each of their posts to make sure that they have complied with some type of predetermined minimum character count? . . That would be quite restrictive, wouldn't it?

    So what is the answer? . . . Well, you have presented a problem, so rather than concentrating on the problem, why don't you come up with a proposed solution?

    Personally, I trust the people here at BHW, and I believe that if the mods were to send an email to everyone and suggest that we at least be aware of making super short posts, the problem would dissolve to some degree. Not completely, but at least to some degree.

    However, I do think that if YOU continue with the current "Gestapo Mentality" that you have so blatently displayed in this thread, you probably will end up with very few friends here. Remember my friend, these are PEOPLE you are addressing and NOT ANIMALS! . . . So, I would show a little respect and humility if I were you.

    "Nuff said . . .

    Your Friend - "Wiz"

    The only thing worse than a useless post is a useless thread full of posts.

    This is useless. What's the difference are they gonna be banned? Is everyone gonna make fun of them in the blackhat lounge?

    Completely asinine waste of time, but hey, by all means if you want to waste your time I certainly don't give a fuck.

    I don't like it either, but it's a public forum and it happens everywhere. It was better with post moderation yeah but that's a lot of maintenance that sacrifices other sh*t in order to prevent it.

    Let's just live with it, WITHOUT bitching about it.
