Stuff you shouldn't post in someone else's FM Ad??

Are posts in the Head Explody thread Stuff you shouldn't post in someone else's FM Ad gathered by a bot moron? They used to be pathetically funny, but now the bulk of them are just meaningless. Many make complete sense or are entirely appropriate (e.g., they're in WTB threads).

Then there are the gems that aren't posted there, such as today's: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showp...81&postcount=4

So...WTF?

Fred

I agree, looked through there for a minute and had no idea what is going on.

I hope a mod bans that gem though...

What's "entirely appropriate" in a WTB thread?

IMO posting a "wanted thread" means that the poster wants to acquire a particular item from another inmate (per the FM rules, "The FM is for inmate to inmate sales only"). It's not a request for discussion about where else the poster could possibly find the item, or an attempt to solicit comments about whether the poster should be looking for something else entirely .... which is what nearly all of the moved posts seem to be.

Just my 2c

No way! I can't believe you read all 7,761 posts. You wouldn't be exaggerating, would you?

Seriously though, the thread has no purpose anymore now that it's filled with innocuous posts that lack any humorous aspect. If they don't make you wince, what's the point of copying such posts? Why would anyone want to read those?
