Would someone please explain why it's SPAM to use the copy-paste-text feature on a first post. I was going to copy the text from the introduction I wrote in my text editor but stopped when I saw the rules that stated... "If in your first post on the forum you include a link, copy paste text, etc. it will be considered spam and may be removed or partially removed by a moderator at their own discretion without notice." Since this is my first post, maybe it no longer applies to me, but I'd sure like to understand it more clearly than I do now. Thanks!

It does say 'may be' so as you took time to ask please feel free to make your first post. And welcome to HAF :)

Maybe so, nevertheless it is disrespectful of other members of the forum.  This is not a forum about musical performers.

Then, what is the point of having the old post about Adele?

If there is a music subforum, then might as well have topics about musical performers in it. Otherwise, it defeats the purpose.

I really don't have time for bullshit rules that contradict logic here.

There is a music subforum on here. Logically, I assume making topics about different music performers makes sense as a result if it was okay to make a post about Adele and AC/DC band members without anyone making a fuss.

Pretty sure there is a difference between being outspokenly quick when responding to people while creating different threads for separate discussions and spamming, wise guy.

Slow down, show some respect for other forum members.  Hitting us with a barage of fairly unedifying posts about musical acts is the opposite of respect.

::)  Wiser than you. "Outspokenly quick", that's cute. I'd call it "frantic". Look at how many other threads have been started, in your short time here. You want to go bugnuts with posting about musicians, knock yourself out. But it isn't all about you, here. You post these threads with some inane commentary, and it should be obvious even to you, based on the threads/comments ratio that nobody here gives a pinch of feces about those posts.

Not sure if I am fully settling in. I had to deal with bullshit from many propagandized places disguised as social media platforms. Draconian witch hunts are increasing on many "social" nedia platforms to attack people who threaten ultra-wealthy people's Orwellian New World Order that let them profit from deaths, poverty, misery, and lack of freethought from lower classes. So, I decided to come here. And I am wondering if the coast is clear enough to be in this forum.

The music subforum was mostly barren compared to more active subforums, such as the "Laid Back Lounge". I was adding topics in it to make separate discussions, especially for making this forum place more active and interesting.

I really don't care that they give no sprinkles of glittery stardust up the glory hole where the sun doesn't shine about those posts. The "Music" subforum was boring with less topics than say the "Laid Back Lounge" subforum. So I added more topics in the "Music" subforum. Because there might be a time when people talk in them frequently if someone makes that possible.

Spam is generally considered posting the same thing repeatedly. TheFightSong has not done this so she has not broken the rules concerning spam. While her posting behaviour is idiosyncratic and unique in my experience it's not really an issue for the rules.
