Like a lot of things around here, the definition of "spamming" is kind of loose. A good indicator is when you can scroll down the page and one person is every other post. That person is a spammer. Offtopicness is ok here, but when you're posting something that's TOTALLY off the wall and has NO logical segue from the topic (like posting "I LIKE BEANS" in a topic about the WTC or something), that's spamming. When you're talking, but not contributing anything interesting, or having a war that's not funny, or just trying to "get the last post"... yeah there are a lot of things.
So yeah, your question is fine here, because it has a logical segue from when I called Tadpole a spammer Added after 25 seconds:
Basically don't piss off the regs is the best rule XD
