Are my memes, gifs and videos spamming DU?

Someone on the Disc just told me that they have frequently put me on ignore here because of my "spamming."

Of course, since they haven't answered my request of explain what they mean by that, I have no idea what they're talking about.

By the way, if you guys do think that I am a "spammer," I can always tone it down.

since deciding to ignore The Disc completely. It's kind of like GD on steroids over there with a bunch of chronically enraged assholes insisting that everyone they come in contact with be just as pissed off as they are.

Keep right on spamming.

Since they put you on ignore any way, I don't think it is such a big deal.
Which reminds me.

I can't find the place where it tells me how many people are ignoring me any more.

I don't think admin liked us comparing our ignore counts like some kind of competition.

I had pretty much flatlined at about 6 and I think I'd actually ignored all of them first so...I won.

I always loved knowing how many people were ignoring me, it would have been nice to know who they were so I could mock them for their obvious inability to appreciate my genius.

Sometimes things people post make my antique computer go all wonky, but yours never do.
Always a nice moment to see a post from the Scorpio! ( I am bad with remembering names, so that's how I think of you. But a cool scorpio, not one that is out to sting!)

Then it's a rainyday. :p

And no Mr Scorpio, it's not spamming. Unless of course you're getting paid, and if that's the case please pm me the info as I could use a little extra coin myself!

Sometimes I'm in the mood for watching/listening to a video, sometimes I'd rather read threads. It also has to do with my old mac and its non-update-able browsers which are getting persnickety about which videos they will play.

hey, did you happen to hear the second segment on Fresh Air today?

Particularly music videos (TBH I wish there was a separate folder for music here), but I don't find them spamming in general.

Of course I'm guilty of posting cat videos here.
