I did just join this site a week ago, but it has peeked my interest and I am trying to become an active contributing member. It has recently come to my attention in the shoutbox, that I am being considered a "Spammer". I mean I thought the point of a forum was to voice your opinion and or give advice.
Here's my day yesterday (and probably will be today too, lol), I was off from work and had absolutely nothing on the agenda. I spent the entire day on this site yesterday 3/4 in the forums and 1/4 in the arcade. I probably viewed the title of almost every thread in almost every category. I opened and read all the threads that caught my eye and if I felt I had something to add or a question to ask, then I did. And yes, I open more than one thread at once; My internet speed is slow, so I read a thread and by the time I'm done another thread has loaded, and I move on to the next. And it's not like they are meaningless few word replies like a nasty spammer would do.
Seriously, I look up to all the people who are on here (such as the people who made these comments), for the wealth of knowledge and experience. Shouldn't replying to people's welcoming posts be considered spam, unless there is a specific person who should be the one to reply. I just don't understand how I am considered to be abusing the forums, when I am using them as they are intended.
If everyone still thinks I'm a useless spammer, then please by all means reply and let me know. I will be more than happy to fade into obscurity, leaving this site behind.
