After reading a recently locked thread, I had to wonder....do people actually start and reply to threads just to boost their posting count?

Oh look...my count just went up by 1.

I started that thread and dont understand why it was locked.There was nothing political about it.It seemed more along the lines of a current event/news story thread than political discussion.There was not mention of who is right or wrong,it was a news story that i found hard to beleive thats all.I apologize if anyone was offended by this.There was a recent thread about North/South Korea tension,thats seems more of a political thread in my opinion.

The North/South Korea thread was relevant to military history and wargaming, whereas discussing a protest of a political summit is not. We generally stay away from anything political unless it has historical/wargaming significance and even then current events can be tricky to discuss.

birdlander,
I wasn't accusing you. Sorry if you thought that. I just started this thread because I was amused at the turn your thread took. And I think Eric explained the reason he locked the thread.

(In replying to this thread, any increase to my posting total is purely coincidental.)

Some do as a light hearted joke , but as we've seen there’s always that one hippie that embraces the opportunity to take pot shots from the mosque.

Yes it is unethical. Shame on you.



Do I have to get to 500 posts before I get another star?

And here is one right here. What's with the "mosque" reference? Is it linked to this topic in any way? No....thought not! But +1 to me and you because of your post - thx Sarge.

Well, just in case the mods think this is a waste of bandwidth and decide to lock it, the last poster on this thread will win the title of Honorary Post Wh*re Champion.
