I’ll probably get shot down and chewed out by all the people who wear a high thread count as a badge of honour (for some reason) but I’m absolutely over the amount of completely mindless cr@p and worthless one word or simple requote kind of posts that some people insist on polluting the site with, designed wholly and solely to beef up ones post count. Two examples of what I’m talking about here, or this one which started off being at least a healthy discussion before just being over run with about 16  pages of absolute tripe.

Any valuable/interesting content that turns up on the site is usually pretty much swallowed up by these sort of posts.

 

I hate wading through pages and pages of totally worthless rubbish on at (the very) least 50% of all threads, to the point where I don’t even bother looking at most threads any more. Basically I’m pretty rapidly being turned off the site (I know this won’t bother anyone).

 

I find it hilarious that a lot of the regulars ark up whenever they sniff a ‘troll’, for fear the site might become over run with something of minimal value (or whatever the reason people fear ‘trolls’) but they’re happy to just clog the site up with this kind of mindless 5h!t.

 

Anyway, just my feedback. I eagerly await the imminent backlash.

I agree. If the moderators were doing their job it would be cleaned up.

its not really the moderators fault, its like the roads it is not the polices fault that  it has a % of muppets on It.

 

People must stop in and see what is written and just shake their head in disbelief never to return there are only a few serial offenders, just by pass that whole topic.

If my posts offend you, well you've taken it the wrong way, the internet can be like that.
Just blame it on my ADD

Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach him to use the Net and he won't bother you for weeks.

There are some topics that will automatically attract a certain type of post, after being on ISG for several years it's easy to pick them and avoid them after a quick perusal. Stay out of the lounge as that is where most of the crap is posted.

Usually I find a topic will go off for 2 or 3 pages then go back to discussing the OP. Most of us regulars on ISG are guilty of dribbling, but it's all in good fun. If you want to see a really crap site try Oz Golf then come back and play with the big boys.

10,000 posts is usually the target, not far off myself so will probably dribble a bit more to up my count. Stay cool and enjoy life :)

I'm happy to go on record with you FB. I personally don't mind people who wish to dribble and post count and bump the totals up if that's their thing. Most of the time people have kept it to their respective threads... but it does tick me off when a really valid, or entertaining discussion is being had and it is threadjacked by repeat quoting and one word posts.

 

I believe it does cheapen the site and detract from it's overall quality and feel.
