However, as of late, I notice a disturbing trend that seems to growing as acceptable, and, sometimes, even encouraged by giving "thanks."
What is the trend? 1 word or 1 sentence responses that really do little to contribute any meaningful value to the discussion at hand.

Having to wade through hundreds and hundreds of one sentence, crappy responses just to get to a quality post is tiring and makes the forum much less useful, in my opinion.
I'm not saying I always post 2000 word essay responses, I'm guilty of not going into more detail on replies too. As such, I've stopped replying to threads as much. Because I realize it's just making the forum look like crap and isn't providing value to anyone.
So, my encouragement to all of us, if you don't have any legitimate, constructive comments to add to a post, don't reply. Posting for the sake of spamming your signature doesn't really help anyone.
Have a good weekend, Warriors.
