First of all, they are the 2 newest threads on the General TacticalOps, not "old dead threads".

Second, i told Darkness to use the "edit" button. There's a reason it's there. ohh and, i only consider about three people on this forum to be "l337 vets", Darkness isnt one of them.

Third..."this is the off topic forum"...no really dip****? Just beacuse it's "off-topic" doesent mean you can just go aroung here acting like a moron

Lastly, shut up

If someone is acting like a moron, it's better to expose it then let it go on.

I think we should just do away with the number of posts and the stars. Just show the date you signed up and leave it at that.

What this spamming does is de-value what the post count & stars is meant to measure. So I guess I agree. Get rid of it, show just the sign-up date.

As for Iceman, he was just trying to recover the ~50 posts or so he lost when that monster thread was deleted. Much of that thread may have been itself spam, but it was html-based. If you think about it, it takes more effort to do one of those show-off "1337 effect" html posts than many a regular text post, especially if you're just learning the stuff...

But again, it begs the question of why post counts should matter to begin with. When you see people like Alpha5 (no relation ) & Demoncow in that "w00t" thread 04 links above, it simply demonstrates that post counts are meaningless. So I say again, just can them.




"Any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind; and therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee."

Zundy, that is a great idea. It would tone down the dominance-heirarchy wich currently exists.

Something I have said from the get-go. You know how much **** I put up with cuz of my post count? People always pointing it out or whatnot. I mean what is the point of it, to show some people are "better" than others or something? I don't get it.
