it's not a quantity thing, it's a quality thing. his most recent post is to a 4 month old obit for the crown prince of nepal who murdered his family. this is news?

Yeah, I liked the sandcastle link, but the other two... no.

I liked the sandcastle link when we first saw it six days ago.

Looks like semper's latest link has been deleted.

Semper has a bad attitude:

So get lost, bud.

semper is sorry.

but this:
"semper has posted three links in four hours. A bit excessive, neh?"
is not right. semper posted 1 link today. semper is not up-to-date as you cool guys. sorry again.
and why are you having a dicussion about me anyway? seems kinda weird.
i cannot see very well and am new to this internet, so i will get lost. sorry again.

semper has posted 3 links and 12 comments to MetaFilter and no threads and 1 comment to MetaTalk
He's been a member since September 4 2001.

Sorry, but that's not excessive. It works out at one contribution every two days.

So don't get lost, semper, whatever you do. (*sees big chance of making like an oldie*): Just try to pace yourself.

Semper: The whole point of MetaTalk is to discuss what people do on MetaFilter. If you can't handle someone questioning the links you post (especially with a mild comment like "a bit excessive, neh?"), create your own weblog.

Miguel, I've been under the impression that even *two* front-page posts in one day can be considered excessive, even (especially?) if those are the only two posts you've ever made. It's not a matter of 'do the math, it spreads out'. I wasn't trying to smack semper down as much as point out that making three front-page posts in the space of four hours is bad form. At least, as I understand it here.

(one of the three posts from yesterday was deleted, btw, as mentioned above--but the other two are spaced ten minutes apart.)

Yes, darukaru: I wasn't criticizing you. You're quite right to point it out. It's just(to be honest)I broke up when I read semper saying i cannot see very well and am new to this internet, so i will get lost. sorry again. And I do believe, in a counter-intuitive way, he'll make a really good poster some day.
I'm only a little short-sighted - but it's enough to know how difficult it is to cope with screens and things if you're used to reading books.
Thanks to you - and us - he might learn to make himself better appreciated. It takes all of us - and all of this MetaTalk thing - right?
So roll on, semper - you're no different from the rest of us; believe me!

i'm sorry, i know i said i'd get lost but i just gotta reply to all these people talking about me.
whats the deal? whats the BIG deal?
i wanna thank miguel also for his kind comments. being new here i wasnt aware of any rules about posting often. in fact, i thought that if i didnt add anything i would have been deleted or something. i have been able to post for about 3 weeks, but didnt add anything.
i'm kinda amazed that people lie, darukaru are so annoyed and offened by me. i wasnt trying to offend anyone.
as for posting old news - it may not be news to you - but its news to me. i didnt know there was people watching my moves here.
you win.

semper, I am seriously not annoyed or offended by you. If I was annoyed or offended, I would have made a post here along the lines of 'get rid of semper, s/he's a big poopyhead'. Do you really think that 'a bit excessive' sounds like something an exasperated, angry person would say?
MeFi has a lot of unwritten rules. I was trying to point out the one about how 'multiple front-page posts in a short time are a bad thing'. And I was trying to do it in a proper manner; rule questions like this are why MetaTalk exists. Please see thekorruptor's thread about this same issue.
However, if you want to think of me (and MeTa) as faceless conspirators who only wish you ill, feel free.

point taken darukaru,
i just thought it a bit odd that a thread has been wasted on me.
thats all.
i dont tink you wish me ill. i'm sure your a really nice person. i was just expressing my opinion about what people were saying about me.
it was a baptism of fire i think...
