yea, i know you think its just some funny, silly game.

but ask yourself these questions:

what make you think that you're special or uniquely entitled to spam the board with fucktarded little FB contests?

what would the board look like if every idiot member who was participating in an online contest spammed their shit? what about even half?

what does even one thread like this on the front page of the forum say to non-members who sign up here and their first post is a gay contest like yours? (i'll give you the answer for free: it tells them game on.)

so fuck your couch, fuck your lawn, and fuck these fucktarded "who-is-the-most-annoying-douchebag-on-the-internet?" contests.

Well, Grumpy old hyperbole aside, I have to admit that you do have a point about 1st time posters that I hadn't considered. And not that I have to explain anything to you or anyone else, but I wasn't planning this to be a regular thing.

For the previous contest, I liked the company, Marhar! I would have liked to try out one of their boards and for thos one, I was already considering ordering a custom SB jacket from Mue based on a recomendation of the Co's product from another SBF member. Of course winning one for free would be even better.

I Figured since I wasn't some spammer logging on just to win sumpthin, and have been a contributing member for a few years,.. No harm, no foul! I do appreciate your point on the subject and will give it all the consideration it deserves!

if "liking a company" or "i'm not a spammer, i'm just a dude" is the bar to clear for someone to justify this and it is allowed then we're in for ton of stupid contest spam.

everyone likes SOME company. everyone thinks they're not spamming because they're not a bot.

I wish people were still allowed to spam yoga pants and underboob.

....and I agreed that you had a valid point concerning first timers and the likelyhood of it being seen as an acceptable, common practice. Mia Culpa! You made your point! I don't like trolls or blatant spamming from 1 time posters anymore than you do. So,.. Truce?

I will say I am a little more leinient about how I view the same thing coming from a member who has been here awhile and has a history as part of this community. I have participated in supporting such posts in the past, but I concede that without someone voicing a little,... crumugeony disapproval of the practice every now and then, we could wind up up to our asses in one FB contest after another. I wouldn't care for that much either.

....yeah! Me too! But at the risk of giving shred more ammo to lob at me,.. That practice got overdone the same way he's saying these FB things could. Newbs with no real understanding of why we were posting those pics, jumped on the bandwagon & went WAY over the top in more than a few instances. Not to mention the rest of us, myself included, kept trying to one-up each other! Thus,.. People were offended, and the end result? No more underboob, no more yoga pants or breeches!

That was at the height of the mid summer Troll Wars!! (...since it's already pretty much a "Sausage Fest" around here anyway?) Most of us complied as it wasn't worth losing some of the long time female members over it! BTW, Check out Pout's new forum title!


...although BA still occasionally posts some rather,.. interesting Yoga pants pics!! LOL!!!
