http://www.gamespot.com/pages/profile/index.php?user=fastesttruck So it appears that my old buddy fastesttruck has been banned. Am saddened. Not too long ago, he had his post count cut by a couple hundred thousand posts. He was an older user who lost his way from us. He posted in blue and had an f as his avatar. He was banned a few weeks ago, but like an old friend who we lost touch with we only found out by accident. Anyway, thoughts?

If anyone can say "I had my post count cut by a couple hundred thousand posts" then that means it's probably time for a break from Gamespot anyway

Haven't seen him post in ages. Sad to hear.

Honestly not suprised, was never a fan.

Wow, really? I didn't know the guy too well (aside from his rep from having the highest post count), but I don't recall ever seeing him post anything really even moderation-worthy let alone ban-worthy.

who?

A couple hundred thousand? Last time I saw, he only had 150k. What was his total in the end?

Same. I always wondered how he got that post count since I rarely ever saw him post.

UCBs I think.

Dude used to frequent UCBs and union boards and literally reply to every single post on the board. Every. Single Post. To the point where on slower boards he would be 99% of the posts in a thread. 

 

 

So if he was in this thread, you'd now have 10 straight posts from him quoting everyone separately and just saying 'yes, indeed.'

He was a weird dude.

Oh fastetest would actively make an effort to boost his post count by just replying to everything. He also set up a board where he would post gibberish to help him reach his goals. He had 236k back in march. Then he hit with a significant post decrease. Sometime in April he had 25k,

Last time I saw his post count before it got dropped, it was a little over 240,500 posts. And I think I noticed this no earlier than 3-5 days before the count got dropped.

If true, then deserves a banning.

Now we'll never know what one million posts look like.

I think he was spamming the boards talking to himself to increase his post count.....least that's what I heard.

When Gamespot tells you that it's time to take a break and go outside, you know it's gotten really bad.

He went from being an active poster and helpful to become completely obsessed with numbers...

From his spamming in the private UCB was known until he got banned he made about 50K posts or more I think... When they dropped it was down to less than 2000 posts

He died doing what he loved. I remember talks of him wanted to be a mod and saying he was qualified BECAUSE of his post count. :P

Im guessing spamming posts on his UCB to improve his post count is the reason (he did it before and after his post count was cut for doing it)

He has also been lowered with 10 levels in one go for doing it before.

Yeah. We talked often a while back. Then he drifted from OT and we fell out of touch. Friendly enough back then

Can't say I care. I never talked to him. It's honestly probably for the best though.

Must have stopped while he changed from a being somewhat of a nice poster to whatever you would call it at the end.
#47 Posted by Smashbrossive50 (2910 posts) -
In my view of his "number" disease,is that somehow he forgot what makes a good forum poster ..... In my sight of doing this I mean post less,get to know more of things,his dream of becoming a mod comes to an end because large post counts cannot guarantee 100% of the time, influential and meaningful posts can do it,but he chose the other side,now it became a regret of his lifetime

If for no other reason then his own good.

I suppose. It was sad that my response to his getting his post count cut was amusement. Showed how much he fell
