    exactly!!! some people must be on it pratically all day
    I'm on here all day but I still average less that 20 posts a day (compared to say bono who averages over 80 posts a day).

    The most respected prolific posters are the ones like Elpaw and Mr White who have been around for a long time, post regularly but don't waste their time posted single line pointless crap.

    No that people that do *pointless* one liners (and post more pointless one liners than they do anything else) are a waste of bandwidth

    There are only so many "lol" and "I agree" posts that are worth doing...and if that is all you're posting (not you lumpy) then you're seriously lacking in the social skills you need to have an intelligent conversation.

    It's the people who seem to forget that this place in about *interacting* with other posters...not simply nodding along when someone says anything you vaguely agree with.

    *head nodding along with Pencil Queen's comment*


    but there are times when you completely agree with what someone says, and you want to know that the comment is good/back up that argument. as long as someone can make decent posts, i don't think it really matters that he/she makes the odd one-liner.

    bandwidth (in simple terms) is something that the server that UKL is hosted on has. Each person getting data from or putting data onto (ie reading or posting posts) uses up a chunk of bandwidth. Bandwidth costs quite a lot of money (and running out of it is one reason that we get those crappy server busy messages).
