    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?
