2.6 Post padding / low content posts
Post padding should be avoided. Post padding is making a post with no real purpose or content, out of laziness or just to increase post count stats. Post padding includes:
✱ "Roll call," "consecutive number game", "last poster wins", "99 bottles of beer", "control-v", and "increase your post count" type threads and posts.
✱ A URL alone, with little or no commentary.
✱ Two or more consecutive messages in a thread to reflect one train of thought ("Oh, and one more thing ..."). Users can amend and edit their posts up to six hours after posting. Staff may consolidate or delete posts to improve readability of a thread.
✱ Short followup messages that contribute nothing to a thread, such as "I agree" or "Me too"
