    Ever since I joined PD, I'll admit I've have an unhealthy fixation on 'good posting.' PD has always been radically different from every other Pokemon forum out there because its culture is rooted in 'good posting.' Whilst anywhere else, SPAM is treated as a bad thing, it is encouraged over here. Mostly anything you can name that's treated as bad as Leukemia on other orthodox forums is a-okay here, so long as it's done by a 'good poster.' When Miss Raichu joined PD in January 2009, she got into minor scuffles with the two head honchos of the forum at the time, Fullmetal and God. She had been told to relax because she wasn't yet a 'good poster,' her response was aptly, 'what is a good poster?' This question was reiterated for weeks until she eventually stopped logging in and despite God, Fullmetal, a whole bunch of elites and background posters pitching in with what makes a 'good poster,' she never got an answer.

    So everyone on this forum is brought up to appreciate 'good posting,' (as if there is objectively such a thing) but no one can tell you what it is. Me? I like reading varied posts, ranging from analytical; humourous; informative; personal; satirical or just hanging out. But I'm not everyone - I'm just me. And if I've learned anything about myself in the last while, it's that I'm a controversial character: nobody can agree with me all of the time. If no one can agree with me all of the time (and as the saying goes, no one can agree with anyone all of the time), how are we all meant to agree on 'good posting?'

    The truth of the matter is that the forumites here are not acclaimed critics of message board postings, they are actually just good at preemptively guessing what someone will like. That 'someone' is not an interchangeable term with anyone you want, it actually only denotes one person: the de facto ruler of PokeDream Forums: God. How did Mario become number one when most of the forumites hated him; how did he run everyone who disliked him off the forum? Simple, God endorsed him. With that, Mario got a loyal following of teenagers who took God's word as that of the gospel and blew it out of proportion. Teenagers need someone to look up to and what was better than as close a revolutionary as they can get to; someone who overthrew a totalitarian rule of a forum and ended up admin of a fun general discussion board.

    If an elite or a background posters says, 'it looks like ___ is a good poster,' what they actually mean, without even knowing it, is that this poster is likely to be endorsed by God as a 'good poster,' and in turn, the sheep will think the same thing. There is no such thing as good posting, only a cult following of someone's opinion.

    I actually don't care about "good posting". If I can "talk" to them, or find them interesting, then I like them. Don't understand why posts need to be analysed all the time. I never make any effort to make mine "good" in any sort of way, I just post if I want to talk to someone.

    I was on this forum before Tim. Which means that I remember PD before the duo got on board.

    I respect his opinion on people, but it's not like I have to get his opinion on someone before I can make an opinion myself. Our opinions DO vary on a couple people, but I don't post my opinions on them because I don't have to.
