Exactly, spammers just reduce the overall quality of the content on forums making it harder for people with problems to find what they're looking for. It's not like there's a medal or anything for posting ridiculous amounts of pointless or repetitive posts...oh wait, there is - pat on the back threads like this.

Puntomatt, that statement is a bit harsh This site has many facets and we all try to get along. AOer's love Alfa's first and foremost.

My time is taken up with my new site, 'Plonkers of the World United' so have little time for much else. Voted HC.

I don't think my statement was harsh at all. The points I made are valid and it can get frustrating sifting through the chaf to get an answer to a problem - that main reason I use this site is for the information that some members contribute but it can be daunting when, for instance, a noob posts a problem and they have to wade through 3 pages of "hello and welcome to AO" before anything of any use is said...why don't the "more experienced" site users provide a wee link to a previous thread aswell???

I'm not saying that we can't have a bit of fun and have daft threads about how many sugars you take in you tea but it seems to be filtering down into every thread.

I really don't think that PuntoMatt's statement was harsh at all. What does repeatedly spamming thread after thread after thread have to do with loving Alfa's? Especially when 99% of these posts aren't Alfa related at all.

And, why would anyone want to have a high post count? And thats a serious question by the way? I'd really like to know.

When and if you get an answer to that Vetch, I will try to work something out in my'Slowcomotion' void, that the breeze blows through!

Re: Whose going to top Period 7 top posters then ?

Anyway, no more posting for me today! Early night next.: In the morning, finish that 'boring' brake job I started earlier in the week. Just remains to flush the hydraulics, and fill with fresh fluid, now I have sorted that sticking caliper, sliding guide 'pain' in the bum, bit!:

Puntomatt If you are calling the people on this list spammers I'd be very careful

I post most of my nonsense where it belongs in the WOT lonuge.

I do however help in the tech lounge as well.

I also organise meetings for AONW.

So Spammer not me mate

A lot of the newer forum members despite being directed to the search facility don't want to use it

And with all the best will in the world to post a link to common faults that are easy to find in here is not easy

AO is like a library I found it very usefull for some of the faults I've had on my GTV's.

As for hello and welcome
That's why I chose AO in the first place

That's fine by me as stated in my second statement but this wasn't directed at just you fella. Maybe "spammer" is the wrong word but people, inc yourself, seem to know what I'm getting at.

I've been using AO for about 8 months now and I still have trouble navigating and using the search functions. It's annoying you can only do 1 search every 30 seconds because more often than not I don't get a return on my initial search. Then I've got a heap of threads to read through...I'd just prefer not to have to sift through stuff not relating to the matter.

Not too sure what you mean here, might be just the way I'm reading it. Are you saying that an experienced member won't/can't post a link because it's too difficult?

I'm not disputing that.

I thought you would've chose AO because you had a Alfa and possibly needed an answer to a question.

Besides, I'm not saying don't do this, just don't do it where information is required.

Re: Whose going to top Period 7 top posters then ?

RE: "spamming" as I understand it, posts of no real use in this context.

Unless people are posting "Spam" in more serious lounges like tech lounges, GAD etc, I don't see the problem

Also, it's VERY important to welcome new members who introduce themselves in the "Introduce Yourself" lounge, so again I don't see the problem.

If it's lounges like WOT, then what might one be searching for in there Alfa related or other? Search works on what PC/DVD-player/Camera etc type of enquiries.


It seems to me that every time an innocent thread like this is started that some don't see the fun element and need to rant about the usual

Personally in WOT, I am tired of seeing some of the threads that keep getting bounced (call them spam if one likes) but I ain't going to spoil the fun for those who might enjoy them. Why? Because who the heck am I too?

Not directed at you in particular Puntomatt, but this type of thread/poll seems to go down the same kind of route many a time, so just saying my bit.




AND I vote for Mark, because he's worth it

Re: Whose going to top Period 7 top posters then ?

Top Posting, would appear to be just harmless competitive fun, for those participants who enjoy it? Can be a little frustrating to some, for the previously indicated reasons, but it is of no real concern for the majority I suspect. Boy's will be Boy's, and girls Will be Girls, in any event?:
