Default Well, Spam Forum.

Well, since many people Including myself find it very handy and useful to post specific threads out to someone to clear their PM box and other things which soon get locked anyway. Although the post still counts, I think we should have a sub forum labeled spam, odd but it could work. Set Auto-Pruning to 7 days or so and put in the forum description "Everything posted in this forum will be deleted after 7 days and will take off your post count".

Something to think about,

ComputerGen

that would be pretty good, but dont u think it could make a challenge to see how high u can get ur post count before they delete it? its like a race ot see who could get higher and tehn start over when its deleted

Well, technoman why don't you give reasons why its a bad idea instead of saying "very bad idea" because obviously thats not convincing anyone.

But would you check it as often as the social lounge? I know I would stay clear so I don't think it would work.
Talking about spam, I have a treat for some spam bots.

It is a pretty useless idea. A Spam Forum, especially one with that name, would enduce more Spam, not less. We don't want spam, even the ones like empty your PM Box. That can easily be left to a Thread after a Post, as a little Note.
