    I just went thru the rules stickies and I couldn't find any rule on flooding. Granted I am on my first coffee so forgive me if I missed one.

    No big smurf and no rush. Just curious.

    Thanks in advance.

    yours,

    What's flooding?


    Edit: Ah, I think I see what you're asking about. Posting lots of new threads in quick succession and shoving other discussions off the main page?

    Yes. And its a tactic. For me I hate to use it and refuse to use it, because to me it's a mark of failure in debate.
    But others do and sometimes quite successfully depending on the forum.

    The other one that you will witness is the "lib post from 2000 posts ago" that all of a sudden appears on the front page.


    You can't do jack shit about that except to make sure it falls off the page. Basically Hannity 101. and lessons by who.

    It's sad but thats what happens.

    Are you referring perhaps, for example, to the poster who joined about 10 days ago and has already put up 172 threads?
