Spam is form of annoying, useless posting. Examples-1 post lol!, or just-I agree!, posting something completely off-topic, advertising, flaming.

Spamming isn't cool at all, I don't care if you got gold king(the highest rank) if you spammed your way there you haven't earned it! You won't earn respect from it either, someone would spammed to the top will be looked down upon and hated. Instead newbies and other members should try to set a example for others make helpful, educated, posts, suggestions, and reviews.

AG isn't about climbing the ranks either its being a active part of the community. If you wish to rank up and that your goal then go about it a in good manner by being helpful way, or making intelligent posts. I say this to the community because everyone knows better and spamming ruins a good experience for everyone.

Do you honestly think one more thread will make a difference? There have been countless threads regarding spam, what it is, why it sucks, how to defeat it, etc. but it won't make that much of a difference. Telling newcomers or older members what to do won't help the situation either - people need to lead by example. For example, not responding to a spammer's thread by saying "This is spam" or "This should locked". How can something like that be leading by example? Your name wasn't anywhere in the thread! :P

I understand the pain of spamming, but seriously, complaining about it won't help.

Although, the idea of having a "Venting" section of the forum would be appealing!

InTheZone, what are you talking about, this is a guide thread for newbies and non-intelligent members. Why would I put my name in anyway?
I am not venting or complaining either, I'm telling newbies that getting AP is not what this sites about, just because I didn't use the word guide doesn't means its not. Yes my format maybe a bit different but this is a guide.
