  • Do you like hores? (IBTL)

    So I have been wondering about this, when does a poster become a whore. I mean I post a lot, but I wouldn't say I'm a whore.
    Generally I'll only comment on something if I'm making a joke or a point. There ar3 us3rs out there on PSB who seem to only post shit about other peoples posts, and usually sub one line posts like "Congratulations" or "That is awesome news" or "Nokias bounce" crap that doesn't contribute to anything except the person's post count. I take this to be whoring. Or is it just white noise?
    At the other end of the scale, there are some that are *so* opinionated that they need to make sure everyone knows about how great their shit is (eg, their bikes, their gear, their iphone, whatever) and whilst at least they make a point, it's just the same point over and over. These are the type that would make essayists blush. They have an opinion, nay, they know the answer to everything you could possibly want to know and diligently hammer out 1000 word responses that require a “key” or “legend” to decipher. This isn’t to mention that they’re frequently uninformed or plain wrong.
    Having said that, the first time you read the opinion/gospel, it can provide a useful (albeit, biased) POV.

    Don't even get me started on the people who jump on the bandwagon (RIP), off the bandwagon (2009 R1) or right in front of the bandwagon (torque vs HP, Dorchester Run, Cannonball Run, I looped my bike, I looped my bike outside of the Balmoral, ad infinitum).

    What do you think constitutes whoring?
    How do you react to whores?
    What is your opinion of Whores in relation to say, trolls?
    Can Mods be whores?
    Is a whore simply anyone that has a high post count, after all, if someone had slept with 100 people, they're not necessarily a whore by the true definition of the word?

    Furthermore, if we were to remove or censor our whores, where would we as a community be? I hesitate to mention them, but other online forums – not necessarily of the West Australian motorcyclist persuasion – seem a little bereft of this type of poster and consequently seem incredibly dull. I certainly feel that whores make PSB more interesting; but are their presence for the greater good?

    I suppose at the crux of the debate about the whores is this, what is PSB’s purpose? Is it to entertain or inform? Where do we draw the line?
    "In all the human societies we have ever reviewed, in every age and in every state, there has seldom if ever been a shortage of eager young males prepared to kill and die to preserve the security, comfort and prejudices of their elders, and what you call heroism is just an expression of this fact; there is never a scarcity of idiots." -The Culture

            I think you just became one. Congratulations. :hardbanana:

                    congratulating people or such is a good feature of a community forum

                    critiquing the art of posting behaviour as you have done constitutes being a post whore as you have contributed nothing but another potential circlejerk/sledge, discussing the discussion itself and raising no new ideas, as there are no new ideas to be raised

                    that said; i don't care what you do

                      You're such a hater, Cip. Just because he didn't post a review of the newest Google feature or application doesn't entitle you to rag on him. ^_^

                            Serious?

                            I did it directly once. Just once.

                            If it's that big a deal I won't post in any threads that you've already posted in then. Just extend that courtesy both ways and we'll never have any dramas.

                            Internet's a playground, I do it indiscriminately, there are others with greater cause for concern, I'm not serious, other non repentant quasi-excuses ad nauseam
