Default One word posts=Spam!

Many people do not notice that One word posts ARE most definitely spam, they do not mean anything to the forum, they will be counted as fluff and we DO NOT need them, that includes spacing out a word like 'no' with it's punctuation or another word that is 1-5 letters, the post you make needs to have something to do with the topic, even at DCTs with the topic you are replying to. With polls too, so if you don't like any outfits in lets say, an outfit poll, say 'None, not my taste.' instead of 'None.'.

Please do not say that it isn't, because it is, I have gotten confirmation by a moderator (of a different insider) that it most definitely is.

Default Re: One letter posts=Spam!

Those would be one word, not one letter.
I don't think WI counts them as spam, but I believe that they are counted as fluff posts if you're trying to apply to the GE or something.
Like, if a poll is "which outfit?" and you write "nooooonnnneee", your post won't be deleted for spam.
But if a mod is checking your posts for a GE application, and all of them are like that, you probably won't get accepted.
It's definitely not spam, because it has a purpose and it's not random.
If the poll was about outfits, and they're reply was "jambalaya" then it'd be spam.
But if they're giving a legitimate answer, it's fine if it's one word.
If a question was "Do you like this?"
"I don't like it." and "Noooooooooooooooooo."
Are the same thing, just phrased differently.

I get so many mistakes when I type, thanks for correcting, but it is spam.

spam stands for Stupid Pointless Annoying Messages (right? )... some posts that are only one word aren't spam like.
"Congratulations. "
That's not really spam, right? hahaa

Certain posts (like that) are in fact ten or more, they are not spam, but short one letter posts are, and it in fact is, Stupid, pointless, annoying messages. =]

I agree with this (Well I don't know about the Stupid Pointless Annoying Messages part but still)
Say you are on the Look what I got! thread and you posted that on someone who had just gotten something cool. Would that be considered spam? Some one word posts are fluff, I agree with you there, but I don't think ALL of them are.

If we see posts like "LOL", that's spam.

Default Re: One word posts=Spam!

I don't think this is spam.. It's FLUFF

These are two different things. Fluff posts are just posts that like say when you do reply to a poll and it's an outfit poll and you say "NOOONEEE" or something like that, it's FLUFF. Spam would be like advertising something or going totally off topic, like on an outfit poll saying "I HAVE PIZZA FOR SALE".

So one worded posts are NOT spam, but they wouldn't count towards your GE application, that's for sure. I think you just had fluff and spam mixed up.

Not to be rude, but not necessarily.

If it's on the GEDCT/DCT and someone posted something funny, no it wouldn't be. It'd just be fluff. If you posted that somewhere else on the forum where it was irrelevant, then it could be spam, but in the case it was on a GEDCT/DCT then I would say no.
