Please stop doing this (in General)

When posting to the FS/WTB forum, I'd appreciate it if you would stop using ebay-style subject lines with lots of stars (or other characters). I expect I'm not the only person who finds it annoying.

Yeah, I was going to say something.. .last thing I want to see is people start competing to find the flashiest banner, a-la ebay. Better if everyone uses just plain text.

wow shade, way to completely destroy the point of this thread, now people will just be confused...

not to mention, now that my post to this thread has been (inexplicably) edited, it's


humor has been destroyed.

You're just not funny ;)

AdminShade April 27 2005 9:16 PM EDT

hehehe i found it actually pretty humoring but meh spoil sport, happy now?

AdminShade April 27 2005 9:17 PM EDT

and people if they see this post will probably always click on it to look at what is going on because a subject like

please stop doing this just draws attention

its like not being allowed to take candy but wanting it so much :)

I think we should take away the little pink tassles on Shades tricycle. They're too flashy too.

LOL, Sukotto.

How about you just deal with it? You have to pay to post in the FS/WTB forum, and as such, should be allowed to put whatever catchy title you desire. If the title is against rules i.e. non-pg, then I see your point. Otherwise, let's grow up and stop trying to restrict everyone and everything that we don't like.

Thanks, Glory. I find lots of things annoying. But most aren't worth stirring up anything about or even mentioning.

Sukotto fined 25k and thread moved to FS/WTB.

He's clearly trying to sell his point of view even if not for financial gain.

uhm, j/k :p
