Dear visitors of the Spam forums, if I may have your attention please.

Over the last few months the members of staff noticed a change in the posting style in the spam forum. People mostly spam memes and various obscenities which has a negative impact on the forums overall. We have been asked to deal with this issue so as not to sully the reputation of our bosses by allowing things to continue as they are.

So, starting with the spam forum (which is not the only forum affected but certainly the one where this issue is more prevalent) we are introducing a new set of rules. Instead of mindless spam we want you guys to put some effort into your posts and respect each other. [COLOR=Red] Please observe these new rules. Every post which doesn't meet the new requirements will be deleted or edited without further explanation.[/COLOR]

-posts need to be at least 2 sentences long. Each sentence needs to contain at least 5 (nonrandom) words. -every post has to politely address whomever it is intended for and contain a letterhead with location and time (example: "Dear Commissar MercZ, ...") -every post has to contain a signature (preferably a picture of your username in handwriting) -no spelling or grammar mistakes -no vulgar expression, no textspeech, no smileys, no memes etc.

As you can see we have based the rules on the way people spoke in the past because it seems obvious that discussion in the 19th/18th century was more polite than it is today.

We realize that this may upset some of you and that it will take some time to get used to the new spam forum, therefore we will not ban people who disobey just yet. There will be a transition phase of several days where we will delete posts but take no further action.

Please note that there may be slight changes to these rules as we move forward. Feedback is welcome (as long as it follows the rules described above).

Sincerely, MrFancypants

Dear Princess Celestia,

Today I learned all about how to post politely! I met a wonderful new pony named DJ Jazzy Jeff. He looks suspiciously like DJ Pon-3.

Love, Twilight Sparkle

Dear Mr. Exquisite Pantaloons,

I find the lack of compliance to the new forum standing most displeasure-able. More effective policing of the Spam Forum is in order.

Yours Diagnostically,

Dear Doris,

You have done so again. Your punishment will be swift. Expect Tricorder to appear in the post and spank you profusely.

Love, Obankobi

Dear Doris,

You have done so again. You must post at least two sentences, both a minimum of five words, with appropriate introduction, and finally you must sign off your post in the most courteous way.

I will demonstrate this to you now.

Yours Otter Foodly,

FileTrekker
