    I've been reading alot about people (in the early days of MR) posting things completely irrelevant or off-topic. I know I used to post things just for the sake of it... So here is my question to you: What is your worst, least descriptive, off-topic or just plain old dumb ppost (or posts), and do you remember why you posted them???

    I know I posted "cool" and "ok" a couple of times, but they were quickly deleted and I was warned about it...

    Here are some of mine (that havent been deleted):

    Stinky Post 1
    (1)Well, Gus.... I can see the light. It is shiny and almost overpowering. However, I cannot afford the light. Atleast not a superdrive light with tons of RAM and a g4 processor at the moment. I will eventually get there. But as for today, I am still admiring the light
    This one was pretty much to increase post count...

    .Stinky Post2
    (2)I love widgets!!! They are so cool. They look cool too. I am glad that a new version of konfabulator is out.

    I did not even know what Konfabular was... And I didn't even own a mac (as I still do not).]

    This is actually damn funny...although I have to say I haven't had many stupid posts.

    That is unless someone wants to point them out to me ;)

    Ya, I doubt you have very many useless posts.. But you are a mod. It would be pretty funny to see some of your useless posts, though (if such things existed):D

    I wasn't always ;)

    I've had a couple one liners, but they've all been for humor. If I had said anything else it would have ruined the effect.

    +------ There it is. My first stupid, pointless post. Of course, some people may beg to differ. I can't resist a good one-liner corny joke, which many of my impulse posts are. But I try to balance such posts with more thoughtful ones, so I don't have to be worried about being cybertarred and cyberfeathered.

    Sorry about the double post, but if i had posted the following in the previous reply then it would have been meaningful and probably not my worst post.

    Anyway, i rarely spend the time to post unless i have something meaningful to contribute that has not already been said. Since i only post if i feel that i have something important to say, i have not ever had a bad post other than the previous one

    hhmmm... i can't remember any of my really bad posts.

    i know i've never done single words, that would just be wrong. :p

    usually when i have a useless post, it's for humor, or because someone is being stupid themselves, or because i want to make fun of people that are being stupid. :D

    shame on you!! a two word post!!:mad:


    j/k. :p :)

    and don't worry about only posting something that hasn't been said before, you'll never get your post count up very high that way. :p :D

    it looks like this thread could turn very fast into a collection of bad posts. :p

    Shame on you too. A double post, tsk tsk:eek:

    normally what i have to say hasn't been said yet, but when it has it is often too much trouble for me to reply with almost the same answer.

    i guess i will just have to get my post count up by replying to threads like this.:)

    wow, i am already up to 300 post and its only taken me 1.75 years. I'll have an avatar in no time.

    Arg, I'm not going to search for posts that have no meaning!

    That is increadible that people remember posts that have no purpose.

    :confused:

    A few of mine were 'arg, posted ____ (enter # of times) before, do a search before posting'

    But... I think that is it...

    Along with this post.

    I've had my fair share.....

    but I am way too lazy to dig any up.

    Is there a way to search for you first posts? I'm sure my first 100 were pure bs just for post count.

    but ive had many stupid ones, as you all know. :)

    well i have a bunch that hadn't been responded to in anyway ... i guess i would consider those to be useless...

    my series of "Hard Drive Hell" posts after not getting responses became kinda like online journals..

    those were pretty useless
