Because your topics are stupid/have no actual subject/have been discussed before in other threads/are about sex.

Stop annoying us.

Because the topics you make are stupid. For example, there's a very popular World Cup thread already active on page 1. You can discuss England/Brazil THERE. Instead, you create another pointless thread that pushes the good threads down.

Stupid topics aside, you might try some punctuation in your posts.

Starting 3 or 4 topics about sex is just annoying. The moderators here actually bother to moderate the place. Go find some forum where the mods don't give a toss if you want to start threads like that.

This is exactly why there was such a fuss over whether bartman sex-man and sex-god were all the same idiot person.

You make up threads that are of little or no interest to the community.  Then you post things that are purpoesfully annoying, assuming that that will somehow impress the rest of us.  It won't.

Stay and join the community if you want, but learn what we are about before you post and create threads.  Otherwise, please consider moving to another board.

Yes we know, we know, Your not as bad as sex_whatever by a long shot, But if he's your mate, sort him out. It will stop you getting abuse and maybe your IP number blocked.

Okay, bartman. Giving you the benefit of doubt here. Explain this to your "friends" (?) sex_god and sex_man.

1) Don't use leetspeak (or however that's spelled) and chatlanguage. Chatlanguage are only for that, chat. When posting on a message board you have all the time in the world to write your posts, so using U R and 4 are signs of laziness. Seeing improvement here. Good.

2) Each forum have clear and precise descriptions as to what goes where. General Futurama, go to the "General Discussion", wanna talk about one of the characters? Of to "Human Resource Dep" you go. etc. Using the forums correctly are a great way, not to draw attention from the mods.

3) Making threads like "how many girls have you shagged" and "sex" does not go down well. If there where an actual topic to discuss it'll be okay, but repsonding with "i shagged alot" (or something like that) comes off as bragging, and that does not impress us at all. It's a surefire way to start off on the wrong foot, and it only goes downhill from there.

And regarding the wanking-thread. When Wanker made that thread he had been a regular on the board for more than a year, and had established his "special approach" to things. See the difference.

4) We don't have a problem with new threads, that overlap with an old thread. Either the old one gets bumbed and the new closed, or the new one stays open. But don't open threads about topics that's already being discussed on the first page of a forum. See the two World Cup threads.

Please explain to your "friends".

I know it's a bit nitpicky but i (And i don't know about the rest) also dislike chat-language aswell as this:
i was away!helloits meagain.
Lack of capitals and spaces just seem to be distracting to me.

Because nearly every topic you open falls into one of the following two categories:

1)Pointless topic, devoid of meaning, with no scope for discussion,
2)A topic that's already been discussed to death a thousand times before.

In addition I can tell you you're not winning any friends with the way you're acting, and [-mArc-] has already warned you about opening multiple threads and multiple registration.

Indeed, if the threads have already been done or don't generate good discussion, then you shouldn't make them. Keep it up and you might find yourself on some kind of multiple secret probation.    laff

if you're gonna be annoying, then do it with some style man  smile and use it in moderation as well.

Doing a quick search would show that most of the topics already have threads for them. It is a good idea when joining a new board to just post a while before starting making threads, certainly before making vast numbers of threads.

I think the reason you get away with it is because your posts contain some form of meaningful contribution.  Also at least you're making some attempt to spell properly.

Seems to be a good advice... I'll keep it till I get starship captain or prof, or till I've got something important to say...   wink

If you are quickly reading regularily punctuated writing and suddenly read stuff like that, it literally hurts your eyes... weird... try it at home kids!

Give the poor guys a break, c'mon people... True enough, some of sex_man's threads have been a little on the dumb side, but it might be a good idea to look at it from the other point of view - at least he's a contributing member...  smile

Just because I often object to your ideas doesn't mean that I want to get rid of you. Heck some moderators have very different ideas on some things than me. That's no real problem but infact part of PEEL, else it would be "post->yeah->yeah->yeah->thread dead all the time.
