    The bears yes, but you have an automatic exemption if you're called Jeremy, support Team NZ in the Americas Cup or the All Blacks - or is that abuse? :)

    That pretty much depends on the context and the member's history.

    If the person is continually bumping a thread with "Thanks!", then that's going to result in infractions.

    If the person has a bunch of "Thanks!" posts....infractions.

    I just looked at your posts and it's not OK. And you're going to start receiving infractions.

    Just watch the DP SPY for a few minutes and you'll understand why we have to do this.

    Thanks! ;)

    That's not a problem.

    Topics that fall into multiple categories should be allowed to be multi-created, and also, there should be a forum for disputing infractions.

    "Running up post count/post has no value - Posts such as "pm sent", "lol" or any other useless post that does not contribute to the forum or the thread is considered a post that has no value. Posting numerous "welcome to the forum" posts in the Introductions forum is also considered post padding or running up your post count. Posting an opinion in a sales thread such as "great price, good luck with the sale" but not actually bidding or participating is not allowed."

    I just surprised to receive my first "infraction" and had no clue what it was for. Using the information in the message and doing a search I found this long thread and discovered this rule... which is a no brainer. But administrating also should involve stopping and thinking before slapping users with infractions.

    So I clicked the link ( http://forums.digitalpoint.com/showthread.php?p=2184538#post2184538 ) to see what this horrific post I made that caused the uproar. I discovered that I created a post in a *for sale* category that I had sent a PM with information for purchase to show *in public* that a response was made. This needs to be done in order to ensure that there aren't arguments about who private messaged a seller first.

    Would anyone even for a moment think I cared about increasing my post count by one single post for this? Not only are many of us adults here but it *is* posted in a sales forum and forums are also a method of conversational communication. Most moderators would become aware of someone trying to run up post counts since they will see numerous short posts by the same and pulling up recent posts by the alleged wrongdoer will easily identify some adolescent trying to "run up a post count."

    So who is handing out these infractions? This one has left a bad taste in my mouth as some other overmoderated sites...

    Do you know any better sites to go to? This one obviously has moderators who are letting some users blatantly get away with breaking the rules while punishing others.

    I do see the point in the infractions in some cases but in sales threads, in order to get itrader rating you MUST make a post in the sales thread and if you are conducting business with the OP then you at some point have to make a "useless" as it s called post in order to be able to use the itrader system am I right or has that rule that you must be involved in the sales thread to use itrader been changed?

    I have no idea what you're talking about. I don't think I've ever seen you here before a few minutes ago.


    And I certainly don't know who Trypp is.

    BTW- Which other users is he posting as?

    That's why you're viewing the topic as we speak?

    You wrote me 8 infraction points, dude. I want an explanation.
