Spamming?

This is a completely confidential pole, you don't have to type anything. It has been brought up a lot lately as a joke mostly, but I want to see if anyone actually thinks I am spamming. It seems that people talk about my post count a lot. I don't understand why post number means anything to some people, because it is just a number and has no true value. Again, I'm just curious. I just want to make sure that I am making a positive contribution to this site and not a negative one.

Your poll question is a bit off:

"Am I spamming or making a not so positive contribution?"

If I say yes, what am I saying yes to? The spamming? Or the not so positive contribution?

If I say no, are you then not a spammer, but still making a not so positive contribution?

I ask you to refrain the question

As someone who ribs you occasionally, the answer is No.

Dude, you have more time than the rest of us because you are a student and you spend most of your life in front of a computer screen. That alone gives you the opportunity to read and post stuff which we don't have time to do. So we joke about it because you can handle it and hand it right back to us.

Forget about it, you don't need this thread. Delete it.

I do have to say though that I've seen a lot of posts by Chris that just quote someone's text and his reply is:

"Haha

Chris"

Those kinda bum me out cos I've got better things to do with my bandwith than check those out.

Bas, don't you have unlimited broadband?

Incidentally, you know what is quite good? On an MB forum I used to frequent a few years ago they had a 'Thank You' button for people who wanted to thank someone for a post. I thought it was a good idea if you didn't want to say anything but wanted to appreciate the post.

Precisely why I am still in school I was a bit pre-occupied with my studying while I was typing that question.

Chris, type what you want, no one reads it anyway

Seriously, we all know that if you weren't spamming on here you would only be sending us e-mails for guaranteed 200% stock market returns and cheap viagra. If you had any spare time you would probably just corrupt yourself by looking at on line porn the rest of the time.

So keep spamming

I do, but it's a waste of time to check the Driver's Lounge, see a bunch of unread new posts and they turn out to be nothing but "haha"'s. I prefer a good joke or a substantial post or anything other than seemingly useless quoting and "haha"-ing

Have that on a VW forum I use. Which brings me to Chris's point. I am MalcQV which ever forum I am on. I have over 4000 posts on the VW forum and another 4000+ on CS. So you have a long way to go to catch me. You are a small time poster.

Chris, you are being very restrained on this thread, so far you've only spammed it 6 times, what's going on? Have you got yourself a girlfriend now

PS, Chris if you have got a girlfriend, don't take the advice I took when I had my first date, 'Just remember son, you need to stick something hard and hairy in what she uses for the toilet'

It took me six hours to remove my head from the toilet basin !!!!!

My vote is YES because I don't like to be negative! hehehehe

But seriously, you do post a lot of stuff like Basosz said (but then again, I'm afraid I do it myself as well), so you do spam a bit.

On the other hand, you do post a lot of cool/funny/interesting stuff. So I agree that you ARE making a positive contribution to the forum.

Post whatever you feel like, man!

Haha, that is really funny. Unfortunately, I do not have a girlfriend at the moment. I was at school from 9-5 today. That was fun
