True that.
I kinda skipped the spam section seeing as I don't have any Viagra to sell.
Anywho, I still don't believe in God and I have an optimistic outlook on life, so I won't be running anywhere.
I do. Would you like some  ;)  ;D
How about addressing the issue in my post in stead? "First visit" just doesn't work there.  ???

I have to agree that the way it is worded isn't as clear as it could be. On the other hand, I doubt rewording it would really reduce links in first posts. Most who do it seem to have the intention of spamming.

As to OP, welcome. I was waiting to see if you were going to be a one post wonder before responding to this thread.

:) How about you post in some of the 'getting to know you' threads? You'll reach 10 soon, and that way we can... you know.. start to get to know you.  ;D

Well, of course! No-one reads the rules until they are banned for breaching them. But right is right, and not right is... Well, left, really.

Do I have to give my speech about how I had to post 50 posts when I first started? I'll do it! I swear! I still have a couple days before my HAF-aversary when I promised I'd give it up.

These whipper-snappers... complaining about 10 posts...

Once upon a time, in the primordial past (Spring 2011)
Long before HAF spoons and the wonders Sweet Death's multi-coloured pony hair.
There was a troubled time.
N00bs were required to contribute not 10 posts. Not 20 posts. Not 30 posts. But 50 posts before they were released from the "getting to know you" section of the Happy Atheist Forum.

Some looked into the abyss of post requirements and went insane.
Some fled.
Many a new user was lost.

But those, with the courage, fortitude and sheer strength of will grappled the Beast with 50 heads and conquered him. Through bloodshed, horror and elaborate responses to "what's on your mind today", some of us persevered. Glory and honour shone on those 50 post N00bs!

And then HAF management decided it was a bit much and changed the requirement to 10 posts.
So suck it up.  :P

A beautifully told tale of the struggle-against-the-system (though you could have embellished it with some sex...). I'm all cried-out!

Ahaha, you are amazing DJ !

Back when I joined in May 2011, I gritted my teeth and did my 50 posts in about 6 days. I was confined to The Laid Back Lounge, mind you. Ah, good times. Was so worth it. <3
