Considering the fact that these forums are growing and the fact that spammers have become a dramatic problem in the las few weeks, I think it's time we start discussing adding a rule against spamming.
When it's so evident that people are posting only and exclusively to increase their post count, without giving any kind of contribution, I think Admin and Mods should have the power to intervene.
Now, some key points:
1) I'm not talking about drastic stuff, i.e. if you post a reply with only a smiley, your post is deleted. I'm talking about people CONSTANTLY double-posting, CONSTANTLY posting one-liners, CONSTANTLY posting stuff that was not necessary or won't be of any interest to anyone.
2) I'm not saying 'let's ban people'. I'm just saying let's start taking action against people who are spoiling it for everybody else. This could be done by deleting posts, merging posts together, warnings etc.
3) I know you can ignore users, but let's keep in mind that there are people visiting the forums and just reading before they actually join and start posting. Do we want them to read all this bullshit? I think not.
I really don't see why we shouldn't have such a rule.
Maybe we could add a poll to this post to see what people think about it.
