Post Whoring

What is the deal with "whoring it up" on this site. I belong to a few other sites and this site is pretty bad.

I'm reading a very good tech tread and then out of the blue there is a bannana dancing holding post whore sign. That totaly annoys me. Do the mods plan on deleting those posts? Are you working rules to nix this? This is more damaging to a site than ranter.

By the way my name is Skip and i'm from Gaylord, Michigan.

Lose interest in many, way too long of threads.

... ...Get used to it...you know you're in trouble when you have a thread entitled, "the Postwhore Thread"

I mean I only need 20 more to 1500 and some on here would have put one word per post. See I could be there right now...

Im guilty. I mostly keep it to the designated threads and its good to joke around with. Also the PW threads are good for the dumb q's or statements that arent worth a thread its self. I suppose the PWing here could be done more tactfully, but like i said in a PW thread earlier... "Its a slippery slope (post whoring)... a slippery slope."

Exactly!! This godsgift guy needs to back off a bit... first he comes at ME saying some junk about a newbie... now this!

I know all about Gaylord, MI.... up there all the time.... find something else to do! Stop coming on here and doing nuttin but complaigning! If that's all you're going to do... we don't need it! This is not a good way to start out on a forum that you just joined!

Might I elaborate!
ALL FORUMS= ALL internet forums.
I have never seen one that or didn't happen.
We just have cool smilies for it.

he does have a point, you know. I'm all for PW'ing with substance... is that an oxymoron?

Anyway, I don't mind it so much unless a legitimate thread is hijacked with smilies. Most of the time, particularly in OT, it can be quite funny.

Hi...I'm Dave and i am a recovering Postwhore.

"Hi Dave"

As a recovering Postwhore, I have seen it all from all. Postwhoring it up is almost a way of life for some ppl on here. I can almost bet that if Postwhoring was never started on here by a few of us, some ppl would have never stayed as long as they have and enjoyed TWF as much as we have.

Postwhoring is a way of life for some. Without it...they just don't live life to the fullest.

Hi my name is Matt.. and I am the original POST WHORE on TWF! I started this reign of terror that so many others have been doing as well. I am to blame, ME, yes, the original TWF junkie, post whore, and all around message board addict ! IVe spend countless hours in front of my computer just looking for ways to boost my post count, that nobody would notice, BUT, the cat got out of the bag and now the word is out. Im a postwhore,and I just cant help myself!

It's all my fault, now damnit, see what you did, there I go crying again!! I get so emotional when it comes to this topic because its so near and dear to my heart.




I won't tell, but you just got passed by a Kat !!!

OK now, for the serious part.. TWF does have alot of post whores, and yes we do have alot of fun, and yes we do use alot of smilies and yes we do tend to hijack threads, and yes off topic does get very very interesting at times. BUT, if you notice, the majority of the time, when a thread is put up asking for advice, information, tips, etc on something motorcycle related, the question is answered swiftly and promptly and by more than 1 person, then once that is taken care of.. it's no holds barred as to what happens after that.

Ive been around message boards a long time, and thread hijacking and post whoring is apparent on EVERY last one of them, some more than others I'll grant you that. But here on TWF, we may have alot of but you also get all the legimate, real, and accurate info. you need as well.
