I'm sure you're all aware that Mediterranean Avenue is significantly less rules-heavy than the other forums. Webcomic Discussion is for discussion about webcomics (and nothing else), Critique is for critique (and nothing else)... and so on. But Mediterranean Avenue is for what, exactly?

Well, it's for everything else, right? Surely that includes spammy threads (especially given the forum description, I guess). That's not true, though. There's a no-spam rule, and that applies to the Avenue too.

Do your threads need to have a point if they're in the Avenue? Nope.

Do they need to consist of more than continuous pointless posts? Yep.

If you're confused about this, let me know. Otherwise, keep the spam posts down.

Thank you!

I was very against this and am on your side, users. However, it appears that matt is forcing a policy of "you mess with the bull, you get the horns". I can't help ya, listen if you need anything, just come to me. No, I can't undo your ban.

I won't promise that though.

Unless I'm convinced otherwise for why they're so evil in the other thread I made.

Or I need to wait a while for a ban warning to cool down. I probably shouldn't say that out loud though.
I'll just make my own spammy site, all inclusive for various processed meats. Seafood extender, hotdogs, sliced chicken, cat food, dog food, kangaroo kebab.

They're bad, because they tend to have an effect of dragging the overall level of conversation on the site down. In my experience, usually when there's a lot of spammy threads around, the spam tends to spread to non-spammy threads as well.

like it's worth mentioning that this is obviously not cut and dry, black and white

there's shitposty threads that are great and shitposty threads that aren't

it's inherently subjective to an extent but that's the way it is

Once you accomplish this, can you send me a link to this beautiful sounding utopia?

Is it just me, or does there seem to be an unbalance here?

Cause if it's just me, I'm gonna walk off that cliff over there

In fact, I'm gonna do it anyways

Oh wait, I'm already dead

Thanks Matt. I really wanted to know what's at the bottom.

And now that the thread is derailed, I guess it's time to close shop.

Bumping this thread since it's relevant once more. Just because it's the Avenue, does not mean y'all should be posting random nonsense in every thread.

I will be warning and banning for this.

matt out
