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.
Exactly. There is a big difference between Fluff and Spam. I see fluff all the time: DCT, Rp, Pollz, A/S. But Spam... not so much.

That is 100% correct.

Basically, exactly what I said, just reworded.

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.
Not all are...some are...but not all...and that is why we have the DCT...one word may indeed be Fluff in some cases...but not necessarily is it always SPAM...hope this helps...

Nope LOL and HaHa fit in nicely when somebody said something funny. If you said something fnny and somebody just said That very funny it could be taken as sarcasm or just plain mean. I agree it is fluff but not SPAM!

Well, a few things to cover. If you put something like "LOL" or a smiley responding to a quote, it is just fluff. Like cute said, in the DCT's people do that, but it is fluff. If they try to apply for something (GE), and have 100 fluff posts and 5 good posts, then, they will most likely not get accepted. Because they did fluff. LOL


Spam... in any situation:

----fksdjksdjfksdjfklsd---
--- ---
--- or anything inapropriate ---
---Go to my Website! _______________---
---excessive posting on a thread--- (like, you made 5 replies of all HI HI HI HI HI)
-- anything off topic to the thread they are replying to

**spam should be flagged and deleted

Fluff:
(this should only really be used on Polls, DCTs, congratulating threads, etc...)

---LOL---
---any type of smiley--- (used mainly for replying quotes that may be funny, sad, etc.)
---Really?---
---Hi!--
---Congratulations--- ((for replying on a thread where someone acomplished something))
-- as long as they are replying something related to the topic, I believe it should be okay

or.. with polls...

--All--
--None--
---One, Two, etc.---

**fluff is not considered spam, as long as you are using it in the right way. but it is not good if you are applying for things.

But, an exception... If you post LOL! on a thread that is talking about getting a new dog or something, it would be spam.

But 'spam' is defined the same for all. Why would you not allow someone to post one type of spam when another is allowed to?
