Why the hell did you close it? It wasn't spam, it was just a bit of light hearted fun. Anyway, things like that stop every one fighting and being racist...

We closed it because it was spam

and most of us don't like spam and certainly don't see it as humour.
If you want to have some non-spam fun, for my part start something like the Zedthread.

END OF DISCUSSION.

Do NOT misunderstand me. Im merely asking for future reference, but my understsnding of the word SPAM was that it was really annoying, pointless, repetetive adverisements, am i wrong?

Well, duh. You're not opening a thread just to post crap (some like to call it spam) only to make it long. I don't see any reason why it should have stayed open.

Angry Omg again

F**king hell, everything is boring lately here.

1) Spam is advertising some crappy product/item.
2) What really gets me is, why do you close fun threads and not close racist and bad threads? Thats what really annoys me, the mods don't know what to close and what not to close.

you're not opening a thread to break records.

The thread was boring, not me.
I found it pretty funny, a 'longest thread ever' with only 1 page!!!

Now sir, that's the only way such a thread is humor, oh the irony

Damn, i misspelled the word "thread" in this title. Now thats funny

The thing could have gone on longer if it wasnt closed. At least it wasnt a racist thread. (I dont hold anything against anyone)

Whats so bad about this time of year? 5 days till presents

Oh, and I'm sure Milord would do it much better? Excuse me, but I think that if there have been problems on a message board, that it's not an excuse for making a thread filled with rubbish. It would have been closed anyway.

Concentrate on the threads that loose members, not the ones which are doing no harm...

Btw, thx Raymond

Its not the threads that lose members, its the posts in them that can be offensive.

Pointless threads waste space, time and bandwidth.

Lukas, im afraid id have to agree with wacko here. Hes much more experienced than you and if you close a thread that is of such a magnitude (eg. the et-axx thing) then people would get really angry and it would cause more fights.

Morden, ITS NOT SPAM

As soon as they saw the 'I WANT TO BE A TERRORIST' thing they should have CLOSED it straight away, no questions.

And, yes, I would have done it better, I would have locked the thread straight away so no harm could be done. The people will understand why it was closed.

I think it was spam. And besides, the 'I'm a terrorist' quote was a joke, and when you close that sort of stuff, people are going to talk about it in another thread,

When a statement causes too much commotion, the discussion will come no matter what.

In this case, it was just a waste of forum Space (MB).

No offense, you could start a 'How was your day' thread, where you can always reply and discuss things that happened with you on that particulair day.

I was about to do it, but since I took away your idea you can have this one
(I'm pretty good at posting very long threads, trust me, if you do it right you'll have your record anyway, threads with a subject that is very broad or very controversial always win).

no i disagree it should of been closed, i think it wqould of closed itself when ppl to come to reply, post etc... and about space, 10 kb:P


But they should close it from another point of view because such threads are "crappy" and if they are allowed to stay open then al lot of "crappy" threads open, and voila, you have a crappy (yes without the quote) forum, which we dont want

Hey were freedom of expression, i dont see saying somthing like "im a terrorist" bad, no because its different point of views, there isnt one right thing and one wrong, and if saying "im proud to be a terrorist" is bad, then saying "im proud to be israelie (or soldier)" is even worse (dont get me wrong ppl, im giving an example) what now that america dislikes it were forced upon it

Hey double posts arnt annoying whatsoever, maybe take up space, but sayng its annoying is too extreme
