The real definition of spamming:
I have been accused of this the only thing is i dont' fit the term! as in millions of messages selling products, i am not selling anything, and this is a "forum" thanks.
I don't know what this is about really, but this was also a part of the wiki article.
"Spamming an internet forum in general, is when a user posts something which is off-topic or doesn’t have anything to do with the current subject. Also, a post that doesn’t contribute to the thread whatsoever is also considered spam in some cases. A third form of Forum Spamming is where a person repeatedly posts about a certain subject in a manner that is unwanted by (and possibly annoying to) the general population of the forum. Lastly there is also the case where a person posts messages solely for the purpose of increasing his or her ranking on the forum. In a broader sense, advertising on forums where it is not wanted is known as spamming and is generally seen as an annoyance."
This was part of a misunderstanding on a thread about a school teacher who was injured as a result of a 40mm cannon shell he found and exploded in his hand after he hit an insect on his desk, while i found it extreamly funny i did get carried away with the moment some of the people thought i was sniping at the veterans not true, but that was before they knew i was a vet myself, it was as you said and there were some who thought i was trying to boost my rating a fact unknown to me at that time , which most of my replys are like this now a private message, i truly could care less about my rating or what ever that is suppose to do for me, i found it absurd about the spamming because i did not know what it meant some where surprised , well sorry for my lack of internet knowledge i know what it means now, i thought it had something to do with advertisers sending junk mail etc. 7 posts would hardly quilify me there. As for the link that is for the people who are or maybe unwise about those issues and should be informed, not made a target for attack. Three of the four persons involved have since told me not to worry they were sorry and said they just got carried away with the moment as others were taking cheap shots at me, one person became volitile and threating when i sent an apology so there you have it in nut shell. thanks for your input cheers- The FAQs on conduct General Behaviour Treat other members with the respect they deserve.
