    What is #SaveOurSpam?

    #SaveOurSpam is a hashtag I created in an effort to save spam threads from being locked.

    What is a spam thread?

    The term “spam thread” can be applied to multiple types of threads, but for our purposes, a spam thread is a thread created to inflate post counts, for entertainment, and for fun. In these threads, users will post random things, or even have chill conversations.

    Why should we save spam threads?

    I’ll give you a few reasons.

    The History

    One of the first spam threads on this site was “Record attempt at most posts” a spam thread with the goal of becoming the biggest thread on the site. This thread was brought over from DDO. Being a reincarnation of a DDO relic, this thread has a lot of history in it. Even some of the smaller spam threads are smaller tokens of site history that future users can find and learn about, and maybe even contribute to.

    The Culture

    Similarly, these threads contain site culture. To lock these threads would prevent users from making their stamp on site culture.

    Sentimental Value

    These threads are nice little things on the site, and many users like them, so why ruin it for us?

    Fun

    These threads are also fun. Why deny someone the fun of just chilling out?

    Break Time

    Therse threads also serves as breaks when everything else on the site becomes monotonous or when someone needs a break from debating and playing mafia. Why should people not have these break threads?

    They Increase Site Activity

    Any time you increase site activity, it is likely a good thing, especially in this case.
    Why would you want to lower site activity?

    They do no Harm

    They're not hurting anyone or anything either, so why get rid of them?

    What Can I do to Help?

    There are two things you can do to help:

    1. Spread the # SaveOurSpam hashtag 
    2. Vote “NO” on question 2 of the recent MEEP

    Thank you for your time.

    A majority vote enacted that we should not have spam threads on this site that are DEDICATED TO SPAM. That is freedom of speech, that is democracy at its finest

    Why ruin the fun for other people when it isn’t hurting anyone else? All that the new resolution did was close the “record attempt at most posts” thread, among other thread.

    There is a different between fun spam and excessive spam.

    Fun spam is miscellaneous forum with small things that only generate 5 extra forum posts

    Dr. Franklin spammed serious topics with multiple posts and such things among that nature. omar2345 did the same thing and spammed there way to the thousands. Those are the two users whose opinions I do not listen to

    Fascism is bsh1 swinging his hammer of pride justice and saying "no spam"

    Democracy is a vote on whether or not spam should be allowed

    Not necessarily. In the US Constitution, you can not speak of things that harm the environment or cause danger or ruins our society. We took a vote about whether spam falls under that category, the vote showed that spam is bad. Respect demcoracy

      No. Our freedom of speech is restricted in the US. You can not say "there's a fire" or "there's a bomb" in a crowded theatre. You will be arrested

      It has fit under the category of
      A) Harmful to the environment
      B) Could cause danger
      C) Ruins society

      It is voted on in policy and by congress. We are enacting democracy
