Guys, ix-nay on the double, triple, quadruple posting, please.
What do you mean? This is a lively discussion. Don't you like the "back and forth"? It shows that people are passionate about this little Scifi universe and that's a good thing. "Double Posting" generally means "pushing the [Submit] button twice or multiple times". Please explain. I'm obviously not getting it.

I mean in a row. The same poster should not post twice or three times in a row.

Back and forth between two or three posters is perfectly acceptable.

Basically what MattJC was doing upthread. Don't post over and over and over....wait for other people to talk. (Yeah, he told me in the other thread in here that he was doing it because of the lack of edit, but now AntonyF turned it on so that's not a problem any more)
I wouldn't warn for back and forth, I encourage it.

I just thought that MattJC kept having new thoughts and posted them as he got them. What's wrong with that? I mean, this isn't speech where someone is constantly interrupting someone who is trying to talk. I simply read MattJC's posts as if they were one long post. So I guess I don't see the problem. Maybe it's just me.

On another note, where's this Edit function you mentioned? Looking at my previous post, I see no Edit option. I may be blind to it, though. Sometimes, when playing FreeCell, I know I need, say, another Red 6 and I found the 6 of Hearts but I can't find the Six of Diamonds. It's staring me right in the face but yet I have a hard time finding it. Perhaps it's the same with me and the Edit function. (Yes, I know it sounds stupid.)
Please advise. Thanks.

OK. I see the Edit function on my latest post. Nevermind.

He hasn't posted a new thought since this film was announced. He posts the same thing all the time. He was told to knock it off in two other forums so now he's here.

It's called spamming. You have to add information to the thread that's important and connected to the topic. Sure there's topic drift, but then there's posting unimportant information.
And since both Bonz and I have spoken about this issue in this very thread, thereby making the rule crystal clear upthread, and this is pretty blatant spamming, I have to make it a warning.
