I don't see why people are complaining. Quit being such sissies. If you can't make a 70 word post that is fully on topic, than the reasing is one of the following:
1. You are mentally disabled, so not posting is actually safer for you, as other wise you would be flamed out of here. And considering you have a mental disability, that would probably cause emotional stress too, not making the post worth posting.
2. You are too lazy to formulate thoughts about the subject properly, and put even the slightest bit of effert into it. Seriously, there has to be some quantity to gurantee quality. If you want to make a quality post about a topic, and not just something humorous, it will probably be over 100 words with ease.
3. The topic is simply too simple/stupid, making it impossible to say a 70 word non-spam on-topic post. If this is the case, than that topic is just simply too stupid and should not exist. Seriously, if we just got rid of topics like that, unless they are really funny, people wouldn't complain about spam infested sections and sections with terrible thread quality.
Obviously, mods might make a few exceptions to this rule, about people that they know for certain to give quality posts that are short. Than again, 1 week without funny topics isn't the end of the world. So this isn't entirely necessary, just an idea that might make this seem less horrible. This way, those who have kept on giving us quality posts instead of spamming would have an actual reward for not spamming. If we do that, than after the experiment is over, people might be encouraged to try and make quality posts.
off-topic: See, completely on topic, 289 word post, that just required a short period of thought. I'm cutting this reply here simply because nothing else came to my mind as I was reading the topic, and I am too lazy to sit here and try to add something else to it. *wonders how many words it is with off-topic added in.*
Wow this is going to be incredibly annoying, I usually like to make my posts simple and to the point using a spartan like quality to it, as in it will have very few words but will have great meaning, but then again my posts usually are rather dumb, with little meaning, but at least they dont ramble on, talking about nothing... well some do, but thats really not the point.
I have a short attention span. Anything longer than 10-30 words and I change subject.
Stupid is gay.

Yeah, me too. I've also got a short attention span. Yet, I still try to pay attention to posts which are longer than 50 words. Anyway, anything that is longer than 20-50 words I will change the subject. (that's why my family keep complaining about me) @_@

BTW, in this case your attention spam seemed to be limited to 16 words, after which you said "stupid is gay" without either supporting it, stating who's post you were referring to, or what was stupid. I guess you overestimated your attention capacity. (This is still the same topic of me criticizing your attention capacity)
@AKofC - I find it strange that to it being a stupid or intelligent idea, yet you seem to think I'm denying it being stupid. Of course, I pretty much disagree with it being stupid. Could you tell me why you find it so, or if that would be too many words, point to the post of others that you would like to use as your argument? You are never going to convince someone if you just make 3~4 word statements.
Anyways, I'm guessing you missed my 2nd to last paragraph. Or at least seem to have no idea why I put it there. I put that there, so that people whom know how to post properly don't leave because of this rule or get annoyed, while we won't have to look at posts like "ZOMG! I like, don't know what to say!" (with bad grammar).
PENIS. PENIS. PENIS. PENIS. PENIS.

Remember, quality not quantity.
I agree. 100+ Word Count != not spam.

by the way, does this apply to ALL the threads in chit chat?
p.s. it's actaully quite hard to post more than 50 words on threads... most of them are completely or nearly pointless to be honest- not as insult- just commenting.
p.p.s. 98 how is your post quality...
p.p.p.s. you spelt spectacular wrong.
98's post isnt quality, thats the point he is making. Length doesnt equal quality. Random things were just said to make it up to 70.
Like now, i have nothing else to say, but i was already warned = ( lmao...ahaha. So i guess imma try and stay above the 70 count by just sayin random stuff. Am i over 70 now? i think so...lemme go word count. Now i am!
