I've never understood why that is frowned upon in forums, as it hardly adds to the server's workload or anything - I think it only applies when someone is blatantly spamming for post-count, and not contributing anything to a discussion.
Actually, it also applies to a multiple posts that can inadvertently or deliberately give the appearance of one poster dominating the discussion without letting others get a word in edgewise. So that's another reason we ask you to use the handy-dandy Multiquote function.

I've always found it easier to make a different post for a different reply, then it's easier for the person being replied to, to differentiate their discussion, from another one, if they are just skimming the topic
