In reply to:

First I suggest removing the requirement of 75 posts to rate to discourage the puppet abusers from whoring their puppets to rate people.




Very bad idea. We might as well get rid of ratings al together if we're gonna do that, because they'd be too influenced by legions of puppets. If you want to see more puppets than ever before, implement this rule.

In reply to:

Secondly I suggest not allowing posts in otd to count towards post count.




That's ridiculous.

In reply to:

Third I suggest only counting one post per thread towards the post count. (This means eliminating the huge post count from posts like the ^^^^ and the beer on the wall post).




Why? Whoring today is greatly REDUCED because of threads like that. I'm not a big fan of those threads or whoring, but this is silly. 99.5% of posts are legitimate, non-whore posts anyway.

In reply to:

Fourth I suggest removing the number of posts from under the users handle and simply having their registration date and location if they have one.




We've been through this. The answer is no. Regardless of post whoring, I think post count is somewhat meaningful. At the very least it shows how much time the person spends on the Shroomery.

In reply to:

Only by banding together against our foe can we defeat them. We can no longer allow our the shroomery to be held hostage by a handfull of misguided liberal whores. It's time the post whores learned that we will not tolerate their whoredom in our community, that the najority still rules. Thank you for your consideration and please post a reply about how YOU can help defeat this vilest of foes.




Liberal? Where did that come from? Since Doobie set up the OFFICIAL post whore thread, post whoring has fallen to an all time low. If you are trying to eliminate it completely, it will never happen. Especially if you're trying to do it by making all kinds of weird post count rules.

Whoring is really not that big of a problem anymore. It will always be around, not matter what arbitrary rules we implement, and the level it is at right now is not that bad. The Shroomery will never be a whore-free utopia, and I think your proposed rules won't make it any closer to being so.

Post whoring is a problem, only about 1 or 2 OTD threads in a day actually have something to say.

Seriously, if we are to fight these vile creatures, we must find their nest. We have to find out where they sleep and breed, and then nuke the whole damn lot of them while they sleep! :wink: :wink: :wink:

The ratings are meaningless anyways, it's not a bad idea to get rid of them.

In reply to:

Why? One word replies in a hundread different threads are pretty useless. That's mostly what it is anyways. Not that it matters.

In reply to:

It goes on just the same. Look at some of the replies in this thread. One sentence brain farts. 99.5% of the replies in this thread are not even on topic.

In reply to:

Yup, they're liberal. Most whores are, or they wouldn't be whores, like Monica Lewinski.

I wouldn't say it's at an all time low. Maybe since school started the kids don't have as much time to play on their parent's 'puter. I expect the trend to reverse quite soon. And remember they're after one thing, status. Their post count gives them an artificial feeling of status in the community. Eliminate that and their motivation will shrivel up and die.

LoL! :grin:

You wouldn't. Have you seen your post count? It's tiny! You have nothing to loose. My post count, on the other hand, is enormous! My post count is God-like! It rules nations, and has a chair on the Tri-Lateral Commission.

Why, in ancient days, Druid Priests would sacrifice beautiful red-headed virgins to my post count at Stonehenge. Merlin himself, often consulted with my post count before helping King Arthur in battle.

In the sixties, my post count was a popular rock musician, which had many famous groupies. In fact there?s a plaster cast of it somewhere. My post count was also involved in that whole Led Zepplin shark incident... :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

if you think about how long i've been here (hint:  the date is not correct)
and how many of my posts you may have seen
and how many more you missed during my more frequent posting days

then you may realize that my post count is not accurate.

that is
because i do not care
about having a large post count
in fact, i actually kinda prefer
a smaller one.

or none at all :smile:

I knew that. I know you're an old-hand. I just wanted an excuse to hyperbolize, and otherwise run off at the mouth. :grin:

Size isn't everything... :wink: :wink: :wink:

PS: My post count blocks out the sun for miles around. It is like a plague of locusts descending on a wheat field in Mainland China! My post count once successfully battled Godzilla when Mothra had the flu? :grin:
