    It's becoming a recent trend on this forum for posts that purely say "This" or "That", now I don't know about anyone else but this has really started to annoy me the last few weeks.

    It brings nothing new to the thread and just clogs it up making it harder to find the information you want to see, at least if you do post "This " or "That" at least explain why you feel the same.

    I think it's about time to do something about it and bring in a rule to stop it, if anything I regard it as spam.

    Opinions?

    I have no problem with it, it's just like "like"ing something on Facebook imo. Just a easy way to agree.

    I've pretty much lost hope for the Off-Topic section, so if it happens there, it was probably stupid to begin with, so let's not worry about it.

    It's certainly not the most agitating behavior I have encountered, however, I am not a fan of it nor do I make such posts.

    But it's not just the off topic anymore it's moved to the other parts of the forum as well

    Yeah, spam it and you're going to get a warning. It's absolutely ridiculous.

    I've been saying that for awhile now. Whenever I do, they just quote it and say "This", as a joke.

    It's a form of parrot posting which is usually against the rules.

    I'm rather partial to saying THIS on the other forum I post on, where I am not in some kind of important-ish position, but then again, that forum has a reputation system with the titles 'erect' and 'flaccid' and the administrator is crazy. However, if it is spammed here, you will be warned.
