    Annoying pointless replies to threads - why?

    [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/soap.gif[/img]

    I was just wondering if i'm the only that finds all the pointless replies to posts bloody annoying. I'm constantly clicking on threads that have like 10 replies since I last read them and what am I confronted with.......? A couple of replies that just have smilies, a few one word answers - all complete drivel and nothing to do with the topic at hand. If people want to have silly little conversations with one another, why not do it over a messenging service. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

    I don't expect the forum to be full of factual topics and no light hearted banter, but for some reason AS.net seems to be much worse than other forums that I visit when it comes all the stupid whoring.

    Rant over

    You think AS is bad have you had a look at the AudiWorld chat room, all they talk about is the weather and snow tyres.

    Its rather annoying to find a decent thread with about 10 replies and when you go to read them, you realise is 10 posts of pointless, annoying drivel. alot of the time, i just cant be arsed to read the threads anymore. If people could keep it out of the main forums and keep their crap postings to the 'General Chat' (Maybe there should be a 'General CRAP' forum!!) then it would solve 90% of the problem. Take the DV thread in 'TUNING'... Had to be moderated because a few were spoiling it.

    It will always happen with forums, and no matter what you do there'll always be someone who complains about being moderated!
