    What a stupid rule to have to post 15 times to be able to post links to facts, government documents, scientific theories, etc. Any how here goes #4.

    BTW how is everyone out there? Are you tired of all the lies out there? I know I am & I have come to blow the lid off a few. Just waiting for my chance to blast a few posting fools. :lol:

    Spammers are one of the many reasons why we can't have nice things on the web. Stopping them from posting links is a good public service to the users this board offers. It's not stupid at all.

    Bingo. I was going to say a good way to discourage trolls, but I think discouraging spammers is probably more accurate.

    You could easily have made 15 posts just by welcoming other noobies in their intro threads.

    Ever think of that?

    I personally think it's a good rule. It keeps us from being flooded by noobs who post retarded thread after thread after thread before realizing that #1, all those topics are already in existence, or #2, they're a waste of space.

    Spend a little time learning to get to know the posters and the site before you jump right in and start threads like "END HORSE SLAUGHTER NOW!" or "MY TEACHER SUCKS!"

    Though "My Teacher Sucks" could be entertaining.

    I do not see how it prevents noobs from posting redundant topics. It does not even prevent me from spamming ads & pictures. It only prevents a FNG from backing legit argument with facts. I would understand if there were limits on new topic threads or alias multi personality trolls, but this makes no sense. Even the copyrighted material arguement is lame. Posting a link to copyrighted material is better than copying & pasting the material in my post.

    I may be a nooby to this forum but I know stupid when I see It. THIS IS A STUPID RULE!!!

    Way to show off your intelligence, or lack thereof, right off the bat. Not to mention your lack of good judgment pulling MY chain right off the bat. We shall be best buds, you and I, I can tell.:eusa_eh:

    If you don't like my rules, tough. How's that work for you? While the 15 post rule helps keep sales spammers off the board, it doesn't do shit for spammers of stupidity, as is evidenced by your post.

    If you have any questions, feel free to PM me or one of the moderators, or ... you can all 1-800-EAT-SHIT if all you want to do is whine.

    And please, DO have a nice day. :)
