*chuckle* Gotta love this:
I’ve been playing RuneScape for the past few days and spending time over at Sal’s Runescape forum. I had a question about carrying gold and asked it. During the discussion, I thanked the responders for their responses trying to be polite.
Imagine my surprise when I get a note from a moderator over there stating that I had spammed. His reasoning was that if a post does not add to the content of the discussion, it would automattically be considered spam.
While I agree with that rule, can understand it and fully support it, please note that my thanking folks for their time is considered spam. That means politeness is spammy. Whoa!
I also disagree with that I didn’t add to the content of the discussion. My thanking folks acknowledged that I read the discussion and thanked them for their time. I had been told by another moderator that we should always stated that we had our questions answered and that’s what I did.
So I’m an evil spammer. I guess I should go hang my head in shame. Mind you that the forums are filled with worse issues that are being ignored.
