One-liners - avoid these.

    Lately, I've noticed a lot of one-liners cluttering up the site. A one-liner is where someone posts or responds to a post with a single word or one small sentence like the following:

    that was really good

    or

    plz post more

    These posts clutter up the website and don't add much to previous postings. Therefore, I will be deleting these as I see them. If you wish to be supportive or respond to a post, make it more than two sentences and more importantly, include CONTENT.

    Thanks.

    Okay, either newbies aren't reading this post or it's just not visible enough to readers, because I've noticed a torrent of "one-liners" appearing as posts on the site more and more recently. People are obviously doing it to get their post count up so they can view certain links and pictures on the forum (you need 5 posts to view certain aspects). I've had to delete 20+ one-liner type posts in 3 days, and more over the past couple of weeks.

    Please do not post these. From now on, I will start dealing out infractions to people who continually post one-liners. This isn't meant as an an offensive gesture, and I'm not being Hitler here, I'm just trying to minimize clutter with no substance that only serves the poster and not the site.

    So, to summarize again... do not post threads like "thanks nice post" or "she's hot please post more" or "you are one lucky man". All of these have no value in and of themselves. If you wish to respond to a post, tell us WHY you like the post, what is so hot about his wife, why you think he's lucky. In other words, posts WITH SUBSTANCE.

    That way, the forum is a high quality place and posts aren't unnecessarily bumped.
