just to throw in my 2c.

i agree that the Spam threads should be flushed every now and then.

But i support the idea of a SPAM thread in the first place. It may not have stopped SPAM elsewhere, but it certainly slowed it, i think. It was a good place to direct people too. And every now and then, you need somewhere to vent. It was usefull and a healthy part of the forum.

Just dont anyone start whining if it gets deleted in future.

Why is it though that people have the right to decide for us what is relevent or not? The Spam Thread was complete rubbish, or, well spam, but there have been threads in the past which were amusing or entertaining - like the ^^^above me thread - which were deleted.

What I'd like to know, is where does it end? Where does a thread stop being interesting or fun and becomes something that warrants deletion? Surely that is a completely subjective issue? What is rubbish to someone is interesting to someone else. I understand the need for space - but why not delete threads from a year ago that are no longer relevent? or couldn't the spam thread have been 'pruned' - the first however many pages deleted?

IMO, the original idea of a spam thread might have been good, but it was getting to the point where people were posting on it for the sake of posting (and for some, upping postcount).

I said I was gonna lock this, but we'll just designate this the new Spam thread. What I'll do is every month, split the thread by taking the posts made in the latest few days and moving them to a new Spam thread. I'll remove all the previous posts so that there can be some sense of continued conversation. There will be a loss in post count but you hopefully if you were involved in a conversation from the day before you will still be able to pick off where you left

How does that sound guys?
