You could get banned if you do it repeatedly. You should always try to post meaningful posts about the topic on the thread you post on. Remember not to post things that have no meaning to the topic like let's say you were on a thread about the minty reindeer, you wouldn't post something like, "monkeys can fly," on that thread, because it doesn't go with the topic. You also shouldn't post random letters and stuff like "ihodfihddif" or "!?!?!?!."
Just try to stick with the topic on threads and make nice posts to prevent spam. (:

Really? Sometimes if someone asks a ?, sometimes I don't know and say "Sorry, I don't know." Is that spam? I don't get it.

I think so. You're supposed to prevent that from happening.

Yes, that would be considered spam. It has nothing whatsoever to do with the topic at hand....it's a post that shouldn't be there.

That's considered spam. The reason why is, it's an unnecessary post. For example, when someone asks for help, they want just that, help. Saying "Sorry, I don't know" does not help them in any way. The person that started that thread might not care whether or not the "Sorry I don't know" poster doesn't know...(wow, that was a confusing sentence..lol)

Basically, if your post wouldn't be helpful in threads like that, (by saying "I don't know" or "Don't know the answer" or even being more polite about it and saying "Sorry, I don't know") it doesn't belong there.

Your question raises another question about stuff I have seen in threads like what you are talking about, though. (You are a good discussion starter! )

Question:
When people get their question answered, and then 10 people come behind that last post and give the answer when it's already been given (sometimes even a day or two later! all you have to do is look through the thread for the first post that answered the question)...is that considered Spam? I see a LOT of that, and I mean a LOT...sometimes people will give the exact answer 4-5 people before them have already given, too. I would say yes, because it's an unnessary post. What does everyone else think?

i would say yes that is spam, it wouldnt be though if like, within a few minutes they posted the same answer, bc the first one to answer's answer might not have been posted when the other posters went to that thread to post a reasonable answer.

THAT WAS A CONFUZING SENTENCE!

And yet I understood exactly what you said....LOL!!!
I have seen that happen, too. You can always tell when that happens. As a matter of fact, I was just at a thread like that before this one. I know sometimes it takes me forever to either answer or post. Can't imagine why.... but sometimes it does. I have seen my post end up being the 7th or so post when I was going to answer right after the person, but a lot of people were able to post before me. lol
