Spam Forum

I, and indeed most other internet experts here, think that we should have a spam forum; this is my argument why.

A spam forum would be highly beneficial to both regular users and 'newbies' alike as it would enable them to vent their feelings in a professional and dignified manner, as opposed to doing so in the various other forums and being shouted at in the process.

Not only that, but a spam forum would attract thousands of other fellow internet users to come and join a, whilst admittedly lovely, somewhat shallow online community. Needless to say, many costly and time consuming measures would need to be put into place in order to ensure that regular 'spammers' did not spill their posts over onto the 'clean' forums; and additionally that the server had a comfortably large hard drive.

Whether for adverts, political statements, useless junk or just as a method for 'newbies' to multiply their post count, a spam forum is the forum of choice for all 21st century message boards.

With the real possibility of HTML being enabled in the near future, all I can say is that we really should embrace a spam forum as a medium for net losers to express their true feelings without being shunned in the traditional manner.

(Note to El: I can install a spam forum for the low, low cost of just 500 Euro)

I don't agree we need a spam forum. If you want to spam, invite your friends to IRC and create a channel #1337sp4mz0r and you can spam as much as you want.

A spam forum would only take El's bandwidth, space and cpu for something useless.

Hmm well I don't see any use for a spam forum.
But well I wouldn't mind to have one because well the one who wants it get it and the one who don't want it can just not check the spam forum.
Concluasion:
Everyone is happy +indeed it will make less spam at the none-spam forums.

If meant non sacrastic:

I think that people just should learn to see what is useful to say and what isn't, like wacko pointed out, IRC is invented for that

If meant sarcastic:

That sounds like one of those petitioners you get on Sim City 3000

Screw the spam, it'll set a bad influence to new members

I don't a spam forum will work. creating a spam forum will confuse ppl where to post their spam, and before you know they start posting only usefull stuff.

Well, I don't care.
If there was a spam forum, I'd just ignore it, so it won't make any differance to me.

You are all using the word spam in the wrong way... Spam isnt 'childish' or unintelligent posts, it is unwanted posts, and many ppl inhere (most born 1987 and younger, it seems like) likes that... So let em continue, others might just not bother to enter the threads, that is my point.

But on the other hand, they dont need to do it at the MBN... So that is a pretty tough question for me. But I absoluteley dont think that we need spam forums!
