Please do something about the poster GPorter he is spamming this board with silly polls, half of which aren't even on topic to the thread title.

Looking through his posts, I don't see many polls, and I don't see any where his topic is off his thread title.  Can you point to examples?

Nearly the whole front page of the Election what ifs section is full of his polls!

So?  Would you still have complained if he'd posted the polls one day at a time?  They'd still all be there, and they are at least relevant to the board and somewhat thought-provoking.

How does "Best looking First Lady" or "Best president" have anything to do with Election "what-ifs".

Alright, so he posted a few of them in the wrong place.  He is new, so let's cut him some slack.  I'm sure Supersoulty would be able to move those two to the right place.

I'm with Joe- I have no problems as he seems to be simply finding his feet on this forum.

Instead of this, maybe send him a PM if it bothers you?

If y'all had just done what I had done, and ignored his polls, he might not have posted so many.  After all, as Jake pointed out, we've had most of them before anyway.

Search. Something you should always do before you post a topic.

I think pretty much everybody here is guilty of doing it at some point, including the forum 'veterans'.

Bump, he's at it again, this time in the history board. Is it really necessary to clog up the whole front page in one day?

What he's currently doing is somewhat similar to what I'm doing in the same board.  Both themes are relevant and have the intention to generate meaningful discussion, but the difference is that I'm spacing mine out with one per day.  It's a subtle difference, but appears much less like an avalanche.

I think it would be better if he went by timespans, say US elections from 1932 to 1948 or something like that, instead of a different thread for every election.

Lighten up guys. Is he really doing any harm?

Granted he doesn't lack tact sometimes but a lot people don't have tact either.

I never thought I'd say this, but States has been proven 100% correct. He was like our Churchill on this one. Tongue

Seriously, the guy (Gporter) is a complete moron who should find something better to do. Or at least get a little more humble, given that he doesn't know anything.
