You can easily have lengthy conversations on irc.
If you want a spammer's central go to the board that has it.
What's with all the noobs demanding stuff these days?
On a IRC, I can have a chat about something, like say, GIFS for a couple minutes tops with some people. But won't it be awkward and frustrating to keep saying "hey, remember that conversation about GIFS we had x days/hours/etc ago"? And what about the people who weren't on at the time of the conversation? Should they miss out on an interesting discussion just because they were doing something else at a moment? With threads, this can be easily prevented.
And I am part of a board that has a spammer's central:http://www.southperry.net/forum.php
Just because I joined a forum, that doesn't automatically mean I am forever bound to that forum. Granted, I am a player of Maplestory, but that doesn't mean I can't also be a fan of Futurama (why else would I join a Futurama forum?).
I am not demanding anything, I am just making a suggestion. I am not ordering whoever's in charge to make a spammer's central right now, and I have backed my suggestions with evidence instead of simply just stating my suggestion.
And just because I am new on this forum, it doesn't make me a noob, and it does not detract from the intellectual qualities of my post. I suggest you get that "old members>new members" mentality out of your head, and then come back to me. I also suggest you look up the definition of the word "noob", as it seems to me that you do not know the correct definition of the word noob.
Good day to you sir.
I understand that spam can be a problem on forums, which is why the set of universal rules should be set on the spammer's central.
