There was a guy yesterday that was just going into every article and saying things like, "Good inf, nice article".  Then the next one would say "I love this CPU!", then "I love this stereo", etc. etc. 

Good inf?  Can we not at least attempt to spell out the shorterned version of the word?  It's only 1 letter.

Discussed user with Admins and decided it's not abusive enough to ban.

(considering that it ~is~ a happy, happy system)  Smile

They really aren't causing any harm, and it's only going to give HH a higher search ranking on google anyhow.

I wouldn't have wanted anyone to get banned... it's actually fun lol  

Although, I feel bad for new users who think this could better their odds of winning a contest.

Yes responses need to be relevant to what the subject of what there addressing and also provide some enhancement in general. Posting I like chocolate and cool monitor great article etc does not do much.

Of course posting how you don't have any money you really need a new machine even to view the website anymore and that your family really needs a new PC as the one your currently on is about to blow up or won't run games anymore helps a lot though especially if the whole thing takes up at least 4 sentences or maybe even multiple paragraphs.

Oh yeah and needing one for school as a college student so you can study because your in the library posting becuase you cannot access the internet anymore on your school laptop almost always makes you look really needy.

Dave and Marco have only been doing this for how many years now. I would really like to know how many people have posted any of those topics per contest because there are always several. Heck even I posted those needy posts when I first joined like a half decade + ago now.
