Shitposting and Spamming


#1

Can we differentiate between the two?

Spam is annoying. Shitposting is fun(ny).

Spamming wank in threads should obviously be banned. But a relevant shitpost is harmless, and in some cases, draws in attention.


#2

Both are against the rules.


#3

And I’m positing debate for a rules change.


#4

We’re agreed that spamming is against the rules and bloody irritating

Shit posting in debate categories is banned because we want to keep a line between debate and casual conversation. If shit posting is kept to the off-topic sections, then the debate and discussion categories can be kept clean and easier to see the topic progression.

ohh noo


#6

I agree. Maybe we should have a serious tag or something which hopefully won’t be overused.


#7

No. Shitposting, by definition, is shit. There is a thread for those kind of posts.


#8

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again:

> implying YD is good for anything other than shitposting


#9

It could be if people only shitposted where shitposts are meant to be. We’ve got an excellent thing here, it just needs refining if you catch my drift.
