Stop w/ the pointless threads

    I just got a profile infraction that states simply "Stop w/ the pointless threads".. can the person who gave me this infraction please PM me to explain exactly what you mean by "pointless" relative to the other threads on here? That way I won't make the same mistake again?

    I have literally 10's of 1000's of posts elsewhere without a problem..

    You know that nobody is going to admit to red repping you because no doubt they will get RR back.. I don't really understand why people bother RR for such stupid things, If i find a thread "pointless" I just leave it.. You post loads of funny stuff anyway F*ck the whingers.. :rolleyes:

    If it's an infraction, there should be a link to the "pointless thread". Or are you talking about a red rep?

    Well... I just clicked on your "find all threads by" link.. and I have to admit, most of your threads ARE pointless. Maybe the amount of replies you get gives you a little hint?


    No offense, but I can understand the person who infracted you.


    General Chat is becoming really lame lately. All the stuff in here is boring as hell.

    lol, then what do you suggest I write about? I post alot of these same threads elsewhere and get plenty of replies.. besides, not everyone who reads, replies.. I'm more interested in readers tho discussion is always a plus.

    Nothing. If you don't have any interesting to say then don't write. It's not your obligation to do that.

    Well that doesn't seem to work here. Your threads don't get much views either. And actually, I think there are more kids that reply without reading, lol. And not the other way around... Posts counts became SO important. :rolleyes:

    No hate or anything... just facing the truth.

    Haha, you probably pissed off a mod somewhere along the lines, and this is his way of getting back at you :)

    My thinking exactly.. as for views and replies, General Chat, maybe not.. Political / Religious.. I have some fairly lengthy threads..

    I was wondering who was going to say it first.
    I don't find these threads pointless. It kinda helps others not make the same mistakes again.

    Btw, dgridley, you usually make decent threads...

    I'm not crying about it.. just wondering why a mod would bother given that my threads are no worse than 99% of all the others. I could care less about an infraction.. I just think it's dumb to make one, without a link or explanation.

    I still don't understand why you assume it's a mod, it could be just anyone.
