Default Spamming - please don't spam

I have noticed many people spam , some in the DCT . Please don't spam , it gets annoying .
I have seen people do this :

Reddytree : Hello ?
Reddytree : Anyone there ?
Reddytree : Oh no , I'm all alone
Reddytree : I'm bored

And since double posts get merged , it becomes long .

I have also seen people mispelling words , which gets annoying , and hard to read :

Reddytree : Hellow eveyrone
Reddytree : It thunder outsid , me scared cause big bro on tv , it not , it better now

I have also seen people not using periods and capitals , which is hard to tell when you are starting a new sentence :

Reddytree : yesterday I went to my grandma's house I was soo glad did she makes the best cookies I love my grandma



Note : Reddytree is not an existing member

So please remember not to spam .

thank you

I would suggest report spamming to a mod or admin and let them handle it, instead of making a thread about spamming where you get several "I agree" posts. Because somehow this could consider as spamming as well, actually.

Those are not examples of SPAM (which is unrelated topic posts), those are "fluff" posts --- just comments with little meaning or value.

Of course, everyone agrees that those just waste thread space.

By the way, what is DCT? After a couple minutes pondering that, I still don't have a clue what you are talking about.

Actually, the DCT (daily chat thread) in Open Mike is exactly where that type of chatting is permitted. It's open mike, it's a chat thread. It's not really designed to have meaningful, thought-provoking conversation. It's a group of people who stay up and talk. Some of us do get bored and let the others know. We chat about music, food, people, the Jonas brothers, nothing, everything, etc. That is what the majority of the members in the DCT do and it does not bother any of us there.

BTW, those posts are considered fluff and that is why posts in there do not count towards posts needed for applying to be a gift trainee.

On the DCT, these kind of posts are allowed. It's just people who can sit and talk about anything they want.

Sometimes I forget to capitalize and use punctuation, and sometimes I accidentally misspell words, but I usually don't try to.

In the open mike, the daily chat thread, (fondly nicknamed as DCT) is a place where many members go on daily.

As stated in the WI rules no spamming.

mathmom2 lulu and Lea are right, the DCT (Daily Chat Thread) found in open mike is where you can chat about the weather or how you are feeling etc.. Those posts on there are considered fluff posts and won't be counted towards informative posts if you are trying to be a gift trainee.
