Yeah, I think it was against the old ToU so I just didn't do it (or I stopped doing it). I remember getting modded for posting just 'lol' or a smiley as they were considered disruptive posting.
Can't really remember if I ever did this but uhm..isn't it against the GameSpot Forum Rules? Or at least was once? Well, they changed it so often recently so...meh
ah gotta love the old one word post moderations.
