One word answer YES

And that last post of yours was a spam as well and making multiple posts is also spam. Use the edit button.

a few posts deleted.

you should be able to figure out what spamming is. i'm usually pretty liberal about it, but if you say something pointless in the posting and spamming thread, i'll definitely delete it.

Spamming is in fact pointless if you have the option of being able to message someone in private or edit your posts if you made mistakes of some sort... I'll report in any spamming I find and not commit this forbidden law myself to my full extent...

like i said before im new and havent got a clue, dosnt spamming mean being nasty or something like that, the anime looked good i just wanted to know what it was

Spamming is any posts that is off-topic, useless, does not add to the discussion, etc. In other words, its the kind of post if you saw them in a week, you would simply skip.

For instance, a post saying only "yes", "I agree", "turhj rhfy|", "I want one" are all example of spams. Nasty posts are what is refered as offensive posts. They are also against the rules.

Finally, don't worry too much. We don't bite you at the first mis-step. Everyone is entitled to a few mistake. Just use your head and be friendly and there won't be any problems

Lets give this thread a second chance.

Remember, it is to report people that are spamming and to ask a moderator to check it out. It is also to discuss spam and what is accepted or not.

curiosity question: shouldn't we kinda merge this thread with the "spam is on the rise!" thread since that thread seems to b turning out actually what the purpose of this thread was meant to b and b/c they r kinda the same topic?

And if that were to happen, a mod would tell the person to stop it. If the person does not, actions would be taken to deal with it.

It was also made during a time where a few people started to have fun spamming this thread with posts that were totally useless (most of the have since been deleted). The one advantage of this one is that it is in the general section, so people see it more.

This thread was also first intented to also discuss spam or ask questions, for example "are we allowed to use the forums as chat room?". So I will edit my post up there.
