Felt it big time. Was on the 7th floor of a building in downtown Toronto. At first I thought I was dizzy from staring at my computer screen for too long then when I heard my other colleagues yelling what's going on and did you feel tht. I made a beeline for the ground floor.
Memories of Sept 11 and being higher than the ground floor quickly came to mind.

LOL.

If I were to use your reasoning I would reply, "because I am honestly curious to know the reason why you want to know why I care about you starting threads for the sake of starting threads", but I won't disrespect your intelligence or the intelligence of the other members of this forum.

Instead, I will give you the benefit of the doubt and assume that you are asking an honest question here. Before I give you my honest answer, I need to understand your question as it is a bit unclear.

Are you suggesting that a bot or a spammer care that you start threads for the sake of starting threads? To that I will comment that this is not the case. Bots or spammers, in general don't care.

If you are asking why I care that your posting patterns are similar to that of a bot or a spammer, my response is bots and spammers are generally not welcome in most forums. Though some are amusing, bots and spammer posts are usually out of context and are obviously created for the purpose of unwanted solicitation.

If by "...you trippin?", you are insinuating that I am under the influence of controlled substance, then I would have to say, "no".

I think our problem is that we don't speak the same language. If you try to articulate exactly the points that don't make sense to you, I will do my best to explain.

I believe that you are employing the tactic of making one sentence (if you call them sentences) responses to dismiss posts you don't fully understand, simply to get the last word in.
