    Before you do that -- Realize that flooding ANY PART of USMB with multiple threads on the same or very similar topic is considered SPAM and will be treated as such.

    If a poster is creating threads of broad interest in different forums and the subject matter belongs in those forums, we allow it. DOMINATING or attempting to dominate a particular forum will be discouraged. If the topics are substantially different and reflective of the ENTIRE scope of any one forum -- there's not a problem. Don't LIKE the topics? Find something else. Don't troll it..

    One thread per specific topic for each member. If more than that shows up in the first couple pages of the forum listings, they may be merged or deleted. Rules are quite clear on this.

    Well that's different. If folks are posting "drive by" threads intended to start scuffles -- and they CHRONICALLY don't participate in those threads -- they are counseled or warned. The OP is EXPECTED to guide their own threads. And we hold the OP to higher standards with respect to the USMB Posting Guidelines.

    There are dozens of threads I ignore every day.

    The OP obviously gets a panic attack every time the 'allowable numbers of threads per day' (according to WHO exactly - the OP?) is surpassed.

    Free Will...Freedom of Choice. You have the ability / right to ignore any and all threads. Exercise thar 'right'.

    People get mad at me for reviving old threads. They don’t get I’m trying to cut down on all the threads I start. Why start a new thread when someone else most certainly has started a thread on that subject in the past. The archives go all the way back to 2005 as far as I know.

    People should first look to see if someone has already started a thread before starting a new one. Do a search for Monica lewinsky or Stormy Daniels, dont start a new thread ever on them. Lol unnecessary

    One cannot have meaningful, polite conversations here regarding politics anymore. For as time, years ago it was possible. This site is in decline with the influx of one-liners, puerile idiots and trolls. Threads started in the CDZ get moved to the Badlands after the brain dead, anonymous, knee jerk idiots named above chime in. You either go with the flow or try your luck somewhere else.
