    At this moment, 37 out of 51 topics in this forum were started by a particular member.

    This flooding of this forum in this manner has the negative effect of pushing topics started by other members down the list where there is much less of a chance they will be noticed.

    Rather than just complain, I would like to suggest that "high volume" posters perhaps adopt a "digest" post, where they place all their items of interest that they have found for a particular day into a single post.

    I don't think anything will change. Several months ago I posted a message in this folder. I don't remember the specific topic but I'm sure it was not political or controversial but of general interest. Because I don't post much anymore, and almost nothing political since last September, I don't post articles unless I think they are interesting to many folks here. But because of what you describe, it was immediately pushed down to the bottom of the page and onto page 2.

    I made a suggestion to the Admin that to encourage more to post and give their messages more visibility, it would be reasonable to set a limit on the number of new threads a single member could create per day within a specific folder. I suggested 5 as a limit. Never received a response.

    Interesting that any one member would have nothing better to do with his day than post topics all day long. More than interesting, if this is actually happening, it could be considered odd, or disturbing. What does that particular member have to say? What is his agenda? Do all of his topics have a similar vein? Why would anyone spend so much time searching for articles to bring to R.J.? Boredom? Low social life? Sad existence? Retired and no hobbies? Who is this guy? Maybe we should take pity on him, or maybe anyone who knows him in the real world should encourage him to step away from his computer - maybe go outside - befriend him and spend some time with him - - - get him out among friends. Help him make some effort to engage with real people and have some fun. Life should be lived to the fullest. Spending time on a computer is fine - as long as it is a break from something, but if it is all you have to do, it can be deadly.

    I suggest a cold drink, an ice compress for your forehead, and a nap.

    May I suggest instead he hit his "Delete Account" button? Or he can just wait until Admin does it for him once again. icon_biggrin.gif

    Same here. He's either the fastest typist in the east or...

    But seriously, Riddler (RJ member since Feb 2010 with 9991 posts) is a more prolific poster than metta8 (RJ member since June 2007 with 16392 posts). Why do you feel compelled to complain about one but not the other, SB?

    There is no limit on how many threads or posts a person can make within a day. Of course if they were all Neo-Conservative topics you would not have created this thread now would you? I suggest getting a life.

    Yeah, he's done 2 posts in a minute at times, complete with links and commentary, for a span of as many as 20 total, as I've noted here before. How do you surf and find stuff that fast?

    He says they're RSS feeds, but still, one has to read & screen the feed, create the URL paste, add some comments, and post them. His pace is miraculously fast, at times spamming dozens of these things here non-stop. Maybe he's not a single person but a "boiler room" operation as your pic suggests. If there's another credible explanation I'd enjoy hearing it.

    By discouraging certain members from dominating the forums I think more members would participate thus giving us all more diversity of opinion and perspective.

    Placing a daily cap on the number of topics started by any single member is one good idea.

    Even better would be to limit the number of posts he can make within a thread. This would quickly eliminate the tit-for-tat attacks that derail a thread and make it uninteresting for the rest of us.

    In the political threads one member seems to live in the forums. If anyone else posts a commentary that diverges from his opinion he is on spontaneous attack. His opinions should not be discouraged. His behavior should.

    I don't know if they're doing this or not but it could be automated so that they're not actually doing all of the clicking and typing. Write some software that scans online newspapers for articles containing certain key words, and software that posts the links to them here. I agree with your personality assessment and therefore hope that they've automated it.

    Because Riddler doesn't just copy and paste a headline and a link and never engage in conversation with others who comment on the topic.

    Metta8 does "drive-by postings" where he just copies and pastes the headline and the link, leaving us to decipher what his thoughts are on the topic and the comments posted by others.

    Riddler engages those who comment on the topics he posts which is why he has a higher posting count.

    Thanks for playing. You lose.

    EXCEPT... Riddler posts faster, and with comments as you say, than any other person on this site is able to do. Really faster than any human is capable, as I noted above, and have stated in previous threads. (You may have missed that, since you were banned) And has a higher total post rate than metta8, which you conveniently overlook.

    How does riddler do that? You're complimenting him on the very thing that makes his rapid-fire posts highly suspect.

    metta8, on the other hand, posts at a believable rate. And with lots of helpful info to our gay community, not just political stuff, and with general info, too. He doesn't barrage us with anti-US propaganda at an impossible rate, as riddler does, nor with your anti-Obama obsession, posts that invariably turn out to be misleading or outright lies upon examination.

    Kolonel KooKoo,

    What part of Riddler engages those who comment on the topics he posts which is why he has a higher posting count do you not understand?

    I don't really want to get into content, as everyone should be able to post items that support their point of view.

    So to get back to my original point and suggestion: Perhaps "high volume topic creators" should instead just post a single "daily digest" posting. We wouldn't be denied anything that we are already getting from Mr Metta because all he posts is a copy and paste of a headline and a link.

    It would do wonders to unclog this forum in particular.

    Does this rule apply to you, as well? Like when you were spamming this site so much you got banned by Admin? hmmmm?

    "...because all [metta8] posts is a copy and paste of a headline and a link."

    That's simply a lie. Like most of your posts here. metta8 often includes a comment. And your lying about it only invalidates anything else you say.

    But I shouldn't let my blood pressure get elevated. You'll soon be banned again, as you have many times in the past for your TOS/TOU violations. You have no credibility here, and certainly no staying power.

    Well, we'll discuss this more when you have your next account as southbeach1503. I note the high post counts of the others here, my own approaching 30,000, and yours at 40 at this moment. I think that says it all, regarding how Admin views your behavior. I guess every online site has gotta have its Bad Boys... icon_rolleyes.gif

    So you want administration to make a rule specifically to Metta8 based on the reason you do not like his threads and based on your judgement of the quality of his posts?

    You're a piece of work.

    IDK......

    Consider this metta8 thread, which is not political but dealing with health, and with a comment:

    metta8 saidNew Non-Invasive Fat Removal Technologies Offer Alternative to Liposuction for Removing Stubborn Fat

    http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2012/02/120207121818.htm

    I didn't realize that there were so many options to remove fat. I'm not sure of the risks of each of these though.
