    ok. i really want to lock the no word association thread. i mean we have these gorgeous threads with beautiful young tpf lasses and strappin' young tpf lads, and then this bloody thread keeps rearing its ugly head by folks who want to increase their post counts.

    Anyone agree that we should lock this thread?

    Yes, I said it before, I'll say it again! The spammers must pay! I still think they should have their post counts manually reduced by their total posts in there... but I'm just evil and rotten that way. :mrgreen:

    I don't even look at it now. Maybe when there are no other threads to look at.

    i posted a few words in that thread, until it hit 100 pages...maybe it should die on it's on volition, unless it's taking up bandwith or whatever. i would be a fan of locking some other threads... ;)

    Although I don't post there much anymore I agree with Mygrain. I don't see any harm in it. As for increasing post counts...the same is done here in the off topic anyway. Nothing here is related to photography.

    I personally think way too much attention is given to post counts anyway. What's the difference if you have 2 posts or 10,000? It's the quality of what you have to say that matters. This forum is for photography and people who have similar interests to hang out, learn some new things and meet new people. We congratulate people for "milestones" and I think that's fun...but some members here belong to only this forum so their post count will be higher...others belong to several forums and spread around their online time. I don't see what the big deal is? :scratch:
