Please don't quote or otherwise interact with obvious spam. It is contributing to the spam problem. Thanks.

Um.. I'm not sure what this is even supposed to be.

The title reads "on TRA", the posts contains "Wait, what?" and it's locked.

I got a good laugh out of that. So damn random. Lol.

Remove the post, I guess?

It was probably someone responding to spam. The fact that it's locked means that a moderator has already handled it, so there was no need for this report.

This isn't spam. Instead it is from a discussion is TET. I will voluntarily delete it if a shitposting thread is not allowed in F7.

Excuse me for being in a hurry.

As far as spam, I was under the impression, after something I was previously told by moderation, that anyone is able to report any rulebreaking and permission from the OP is not permission to break the rules regarding spam. Why is this any different?

Because I'm not ruling what you reported as outright spam; if I did, you'd be correct, and I would have removed it.

Silly? Yes. Potentially unwanted? Sure, if the OP says it is. But as a one-off, in an OOC thread that appears deliberately self-aware of the more humorous aspects of otaku culture, spam? No. It's certainly no worse than the "just above bar" "almost tag spam" we allow people to post, which it could just as easily be. As it is, it's borderline, and I'm willing to give the player the benefit of the doubt - but the thread OP doesn't have to.

Hence: if the OP has a problem with it, as OP, they can ask it be removed.
