It should be fine unless the user is doing it repeatedly to troll others(ex, quoting the main topic every time he replies in the thread with no connection to what he is replying or if he doing so without adding any text/substantial text(emojis, "+1" only etc)
Yes, if it's unnecessary.

Thanks @mexxer-2 and @hilariousandco for the reply this will help others to report some users here for this issue with quoting long posts that is not good in the eye.

 Huh   Quick Question to ensure that I'm interpreting the spam rule correctly:

I am an affiliate with a Legitimate Ethereum / Altcoin Investment company.  

What are the rules on posting a referral link?  

Is that considered spamming?

As long as you do not FUD (strong and reasonable criticism != FUD) or try to promote potentially consensus breaking implementations, then Bitcoin Discussion is the section for it.

You mean, appearing to promote another consensus implementation, other than the currently running/adopted one, is not allowed??

Consensus implementation (e.g. Bitcoin Core, Bitcore) != consensus breaking implementation (e.g. Bitcoin Classic). However, it would not get removed but just moved to the Altcoin section or something. It's more on a case-by-case basis.

Hello, may I ask why Spotniek is still around? He's broken nearly all of the being rude, trolling, posting irrelevant rant rules. If MPOE was banned for it, why is this dude still invading every thread in existence?

He might have a good opinion, but hes absolutely rude, belittling, and I can safely say that I see him in too many threads to say it's good for the public image of bitcoin. I've not once seen him be nice or respectful & quite frankly add anything of substance to any thread I see him post in, he just rehashes the same thing over and over.

AFAIK he's been temp-banned for his behavior (primarily blatant trolling) several times. If you see more of such behavior, feel free to use the "Report to Moderator" link to inform the staff. However, being rude, unpleasant or posting rants isn't a bannable offense on it's own.

For example, if in a 14 day period you post 14 posts, you gain +14 activity.
If you post 2 posts in a 14 day period, you gain +2 activity.
If you don't post at all in a 14 day period, you don't gain activity.
However, if you post 15 or more posts in a 14 day period, you still gain only +14 activity.

So there is a cap on how quickly your activity can accumulate, 15 posts per 14 days to gain 14 activity per week max?

Also how about losing activity can you ever lose activity? It says if you don't post at all you don't gain activity, but can you lose it?

Fixed it.

Also how about losing activity can you ever lose activity?

Yes, if all your posts for an activity period are deleted you lose all 14 points of activity.

It says if you don't post at all you don't gain activity, but can you lose it?

There is no decay over time, no.

Added clarification in regards to one of the FAQ questions (as I'm tired of repeating myself in PMs; change highlighted):

Quote
Q: Do you moderate/delete (possible) FUD, accusations and untrue information?
A: No. We don't have enough time to check every single piece of information and verify the validity of the sources. Also, just like scams - too much room for bias and abuse.

However, trolling isn't allowed. If a user is habitually posting obviously false nonsense ("obviously false nonsense" to an outsider, NOT to someone who follows or is involved in the discussion) just to stir up trouble, then it's considered trolling, which is prohibited. Such cases should be thoroughly documented in the report though (There are tons of reports that just say "trolling", but moderators don't have time to look through each user's post).



There are so many rules!

If you feel someone broke the law, contact your local authorities and file a police report. We're neither judge, nor jury, nor the executioner when it comes to enforcing laws around the world.

It could be reasonably argued, thats exactly what Lauda should have done, instead of acting as the threatening executioner.

It does seem so, though let's keep this on topic. The ethics of a user's actions should be discussed in it's own topic.

It looks like theymos has added a new rule regarding the sale of invites/accounts:
Quote from: theymos
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1785577.0
You are only allowed to sell accounts/invites that you legally obtained yourself or through legitimate trades. If you did anything illegal in order to obtain an item, then you can't trade it on bitcointalk.org. Anyone found breaking this rule will be banned.
