    Ok Hi again guys, I'm a bit pi...d off now because for the last few days I have been looking at me emailo account to see over 100 thread has been updated emails. I'm so annoyed to say that about 60% of it is unneeded posting! It has come to my attention and the attention of a few other biug users that some users are posting over and over again on the thread in a row. For example, they are posting a message, two minutes later another one saying something different and 2 minutes later etc etc.... If you would just use Edit Message, then you wouldnt have the email accounts of other users on the thread flooded! I have 1 example here with UK_NEWZ and now mate u know we get on great and I'm not attacking you or dissin u or anything but you have caused most of it over the past few days, maybe you forgot that for every single message you post anyone else on the thread gets a thread has been updated email. I could have had 1 instead of 5 in the following thread...

    Now I dunno what ye are up to those of you who are doing it, maybe you want higher status or to simply get to the top of the forum charts which doesnt bother me but 100 thread has been updated emails every time i wake up does bother me a lot! Its discouraging and I think there's a need for some changes in the forum rules or system!
