    Incredibly defiant Black-Ice expected to post gif.

    Black-Ice defies common stereotype of his behaviour.

    ^ see? ..that kind of joke is not spam trash ...actually, little jokes like that keep a thread alive in my opinion ...a bit of joy is always good for a pleasant and constructive discussion ...not the crazy trolling and spamming obviously, but that wouldn't be the case in soulx's post, even if it had only the gif. It's still related to the content of the topic ( that's why it has a funny side to it at all).


    What I want to say is ...when a post express creativity (even if only using a gif) It's joyful ...it inspire people ...and it helps to keep a conversation healthy/less stressful

    (and if people think this kind of thing is completely irrelevant, I recommend watching, for example, John Cleese video about Creativity and the importance of humor for solving problems)


    ...and again ..I'm against crazy trolling and spamming, but that's not related to what I'm pointing here..

    What about a few lines of text relevant to the thread and an image that's also relevant to it?

    At least it's better than the "Herp derp is this spam" and "I reported this thread cos it'z spam" replies on spambot threads.

    On topic though, I do agree that it gets annoying when more than half the replies are "dis gun be good" and the like :\

    Gr, I hate that in the WTS forum. Someone posts something irrelevant and think they can clean up by asking the seller something relevant about the sale.

    I'd think if there was a spoiler hiding the image so it doesn't span 30 pages then that'd be fine I'd assume. Unless this thread is about killing laughter.

    To be fair, he did make a sentence before he posted it. And they are his rules after all

    All you post is retarded pictures anyways thinking you're being funny and clever. That's the only reason why you hate it.

    But a dumb picture is worth a thousand dumb words.

    And I don't think we want this place to be filled with that, don't we?

    absolutely agree to what say, being a responsible member demands much more than just adding image sand gifs.

    Meme spammers should be dealt with harsher.
    It's incredibly annoying and 9/10 times it provokes a flame war.

    Not only is it incredibly dumb, it's also against what GBAtemp is.
    GBAtemp is a forum, not an imageboard.

    The same goes for one word posts.
    Even if the simple answer is yes or no, try to elaborate the post instead of posting yes or no, nobody learns from that.

    Meh I'll follow the rule but I think it's lame, Sometimes Willy Wonka is simply the appropriate answer to bullshit.

    Appropriate answer to bullshit is report post, or ignore it.
    if you find the bullshit post worth your time replying, losing your time finding a picture and polluting the forum even more, then are you sure you feel like it's bullshit? seems to me like you feel it's funny and ought to participate.

    I don't think I've ever reported anything, the only time I would if it was a scam/spam or gore or something really extreme. I don't take internet forums that seriously, if it's stupid shit the best way to contribute is try to get a laugh out of someone. Trying to make someone smile in the face of painful ignorance is never a negative act.
