When someone posts every 3 minutes almost 24/7....

    Curious what the consensus is behind this, some combination of:

    1) An obsessive-compulsive disorder.

    2) Unemployed or significantly under-employed with much time on their hands.

    3) Paid operative.

    4) Intent to push posts they oppose down to minimize them getting seen.

    Anything else?

    +1 (except I don't have anyone on ignore).

    Who's posting every 3 minutes?

    southbeach1500 saidI would think item #3 on your list applies to the "hidden / deleted member" who for some strange reason clicks his mouse thousands of times on his topics to raise the number of views to numbers that any sane person can see are not credible.

    That insane member was not the main one I was thinking of, but he would certainly qualify. Noticed he had over 4,000 views on a message that had been posted not 10 minutes before. You can't mouse click that many times so he must be using a server-based service. If I were the Admin I would take action because that tactic is similar to denial of service attacks. Increasing bandwidth usage may also increase the hosting fees.

    metta, hot_joe and hidden member are probably in the 1%. Everyone else has to work for a living.

    By "hidden member" you may mean theantijock. He is clearly mentally damaged.

    The Ignore His Posts link does work with hidden members, so your annoyance is easily solved.

    I don't know who the OP is referring to, but I have noted that the Metta and "Hott"Joe post every waking hour of the day here, especially during the week.

    Joe probably is a "stay at home husband" and his spouse goes out into the world and earns the money for the household.

    As for the Metta, probably getting money from mom / dad because he claims to own a business, but clearly business is extremely slow given the amount of time Metta spends looking for headlines and links to copy and paste here.



    The phrase "people in glass houses..." springs to mind. Metta's average number of posts per day since he joined RJ is 11.02, while yours is 10.2. I'm not sure you're in any position to be throwing stones.

    southbeach1500 saidWell, here is just ONE topic that the Metta has been posting in all day today. Times have been adjusted to local Metta time.

    I believe the OP has nailed it in his 4 bullet points:

    At what point does an obsessive – compulsive disorder cross the line to be considered mental illness?

    A mental disorder is a mental illness, no?

    True but it seems there are differences in degree. For example double checking to ensure doors locked a couple of times might be obsessive-compulsive but not so severe as to be considered an illness. But when someone can't help themselves from continually posting to the point of being absurd, that is different.

    Well tomorrow is another day and with Bernie soundly beaten in the primaries tonight, perhaps whoever is behind the automated Metta headline and link Bernie propaganda postings will finally pull the plug.

    Maybe, but obsessive behavior generally finds a different target to focus on. Noticed the hidden member spamming your threads with the same post. He may already be heavily medicated, but should also be banned. 4,000+ views in 10 minutes his typical thread is equivalent to denial of service and ups the hosting costs. On one of my boards, his ass would be gone in an instant.

    Same here.

    If it's the real crazy one, I don't understand why anyone here does not have him on ignore.

    I believe the OP has nailed it in his 4 bullet points:


    On average, you post almost as many times per day as Metta does (your 10 per day versus his 11 per day). How do you even have the gall to bitch about him? (And the OP is no slouch, averaging 6 posts per day, although he does have the excuse that he's of retirement age.)

    Oh, and before you reach for your calculator, my average is 2.6 posts per day.

    southbeach1500 saidIt appears that "Hott"Joe is MIA as a result of what can only be described as a depressing day yesterday for him and the rest of the Bernie fans.

    The automated headline and link copy and paste Metta machine - being a machine - was not affected as Joe was and has been busy copying and pasting pro-Bernie headlines and links every waking hour of the day today. Business as usual.

    I think the obsessive-compulsive behavior will be compounded with extreme nervousness as the liberals sink into oblivion. The fear is massively increased at the thought of right wing death reeducation squads that will be come knocking. Sorry for the strike-thru. Was thinking of the days of Augusto Pinochet, but people are nicer today. icon_lol.gif

    This topic is so timely, as whenever I post no matter what time, I notice the mettabot posts right on top of it.

    I am looking forward to the death reeducation squads fixing these annoying and troublesome liberals.

    Donald Trump is a big believer in THE PROTESTANT WORK ETHIC, so, he's very serious about getting these layabout off their drugs and putting them to work.

    Hey man / you gotta give Mehta a break! He is here to make sure we dudes get the news that's worth getting. Stuff we might not have time to hear. Mehta is really a cool guy, and yeah I know he's kind of a loner and all, but that's not a crime! C-mon man! Cut the dude some slack! He puts forth a whole lot of good in searching out and finding stuff for us all to think about and know! He's doing a lot to help in politics, pot, and other areas! We need a dude like that who has the time to help us out, ya know? Get off his back about not working! There's more to life than just working for the man all day long. The government should do something about all the hours people have to work. Mehta has the right idea / kick back a bit and read up!
