Why you always gotta kiss everybody?

Anyway, that video is both helpful AND informative!

I do the kiss because usually when I post at a forum I have something I put in all my posts.

I slacked off here because it is a different system then others so yeah.

Plus I like the kiss.

Don't fight it.

Maybe it would do everyone some good to watch this video and read the forum guidelines. There has been way too much spamming and pointless topics being made.

It's pretty easy to post constructively.. its not hard at all. Here is the condensed version of the forum rules, please follow them:

But I followed all those rules whenever I made threads, I just found lots of reasons is all.

13. You may not post advertisements.

Why are they allowed in your sig, that gets posted...  :D

No, you didn't follow all those rules.  Not only that you admitted you broke the rules merely to see how far you could go.

Just wanted to see exactly where the limits were, I'll stop now.

I personally don't find it entertaining or funny.  And it definately doesn't help with me gain any respect for you as a poster. Keep this up and people might just start skipping past your posts.  If you want to be respected, post maturely. Don't repeat yourself, and don't create topics simply for the sake of it. It's easy to slip up and do this now and then, but doing it repeatedly gets people annoyed.  So just consider how you want people to regard you the next time you post, and ask yourself "Do I really need to post this?"

OK, mabye the "Just" wasn't really supposed to be there, I was typing fast OK? (For me anyway.)

Also I needed to find out exactly where the limits were, so I didn't accidently get banned without a clue why.

And I also stated that I had a more important reason for each of those threads. FYI  >:( Incase you "Skiped past those parts".)

The rule about staying on topic should be bendable; human conversation follows natural progression, with one idea leading to another. Of course, the conversation should always be steered back to the topic, but just posting 'Stay on-topic' isn't really helpful.

I was paroozing the "forum history" thread and just had the urge to say something. Plus, now all these new members can get a chance to share an experience only the older members once had.
