I think A and C are sort of considered spam, but spam stands for Silly Pointless And Annoying messages. an example would be typing random letters for post count.

Default Re: Spamming?

It depends on the thread. On the DCT, those would all be OK. On MLIW, A and maybe C would be spam. Those just an example. But on a club thread, or a discussion thread, or a contest thread, etc. those would all be spam. But it really does depend on the thread. But you really have to look at each thread individually. If the owner of the thread thinks it's spam, it's spam. I think if you really don't want to spam, look over each post you type and think this:

"Will someone be able to make insightful response to this post related to the topic this thread is on?"

If the answer is no, that is spam, or off topic posting. If yes, go ahead and post!

Default Re: Spamming?

To me, spam is posts without a point. Like ashoiashfaoihawoihawtoiahwtoiah or lololololololol or

Stuff that's annoying and pointless. I don't think that any of your examples, really, are spam, since all of them have some purpose behind them. However, all of them could be improved as posts. I think those could possibly be "fluff posts", but spam? Not in my opinion.

I don't think any of those are spam. Spam is like this:
Let's say you post on a forum where you talk about fried chicken.
Some random person comes on and say's
"Come to my forum! We give prizes out to people for doing great feats!"

Spam is like that.

Or it could be random things like:

I'm a kid, younger than 18, so basically, I'm a minor.
I'm checking my e-mail, and I see an e-mail (LOL, what was I expecting? A free Webkinz [Why couldn't I get a free Webkinz?]?)
The e-mail's about something I can't use, by law, until I am like, 18!(I wouldn't want to use it anyway, but that's beside the point)
I move it to my spam folder, and then it get's deleted the next week.

Or:
I don't have the ability to send texts on my phone. I can only recieve texts. Like I mentioned, I am a minor, so when I get this one text, it really freaks me out (Again, the message is about something I'm not allowed to use until I'm 18, but I still wouldn't want to use it anyway.).
I also got a text about using the lottery, and I'm like "what in the world?! Why am I getting these texts?!" Then my dad called verison, and he left a very colorful message demanding I can't recieve texts on my phone.

Stuff like that is spam

Your examples are like fluff

Default Re: Spamming?

As others have said, it depends on where you put them. Like saying "hi I like pie" on a gifted thread (real-life example hehe). it is very nice that you care so much to post this thread. Spam is also chain letters, and punnishment can be more severe if you start one of those.
