This kind of spamming should not be encouragedI use the word 'spamming', for lack of another word to describe my concern. Maybe, I should call it unsolicited messaging, because that is what some posts appear to be.
ISC has a strict policy against spamming, but I see it occurring within the forum, on a regular basis.
For instance, an editor or the webmaster responds to a thread or issues a policy change, and we have a few members responding to the same without adding any value to the thread. A subsequent message from such members states what has already been mentioned and calls upon others to follow the new policy. Is it not the equivalent of spamming?
There should be a method to stop such methods where the agenda clearly is to score points. It just opens the doors for other members to begin doing the same. Also, it is unfair for those members who do not follow such point earning practices. They stand to lose, in view of what is being allowed,
