There are a couple of users on this board (you know who you are) and occasionally others who reply to their own posts, sometimes several times in a thread.  This makes the thread difficult to read and follow, especially when another user is replying to pst #1 while the other is posting #2 and #3 before the second user can get his reply up.
Can we get some guidance from the moderator on this, and perhaps a rule--such as waiting an hour before replying to your own post, or better yet, using the edit button to add additional thoughts.  Otherwise, it is confusing and comes off as a wild rant.

Wow would that really make you feel like you won something for a change?

Here is why I add new replies:

Because people have already READ the original post, and when you "Edit," the people who have ALREADY read it, don't realize that it's been edited and new information has been added, so they don't read the edited additional part.

You just want this because you aren't able to defend yourself. Sorry if it's CONFUSING. You should learn how to pay attention to what's being said.

I sometimes edit my posts to ADD additional information, but not to change anything other than keyboard errors, and other faux pas. 
But then, suti was complaining about editing posts.. so some people are never happy.

I doubt that.  Just to take one example, from your thread on the NYT article retarction about 17 agencies.  The original post was at 2:36. The second at 2:40 and the tird at 2:49.  Was someone reading over shoulder?

It would only be effective to your cause, to make sure nobody reads the additional info, because they already read the original post. Nice try.

Is this reply too confusing for you?

I do it on occasion.   When I do it, I want any previous thread readers to know I added something new. 

I do agree that 7 replies to yourself is OTT.

Oh, m, you are being disingenuous as to your current role as the P&D forum's serial multiple self-repeating poster.

You heap replies upon your own replies, ad infinitum, usually because you are in full-rage mode.  Rather than adding new information, you are usually repeating the same idea or insult, five or six times in consecutive posts -- which does not, however, increase its merit or legitimacy.  Only yesterday, you were spinning like a top and posting the same trash talk, repeatedly, on the second page of:

https://forum.gaytorrent.ru/index.php?topic=51052.20  "Trump cuts $22 Million from White House Budget"

So yes, this forum REALLY needs some numerical limitations, and/or warnings given, when these one-person daisy chains occur.  It has a negative effect on the proper functioning of the board.

Funny.. I don't recall you complaining about a month ago when DrWas posted 13 new topics in one day.     Is it possible you are selective about who you complain about?   Shocked

I was writing about same-author, repetitive and consecutive posts within ONE thread -- which IS the topic here -- not the formation of new, multiple threads.  You're serving apples and oranges, with a side of reading comprehension issues.

You know I like to be the fact checker on this board.  I reviewed the posts from June.  Drwas basically spammed the board with multiple posts, most of which had no replies at all.  There were about 5 in which he replied to his own post, but he waited anywhere from 30-60 minutes before posting a reply.  In all cases, he was the only reply on the thread and it died there. If anything, he was   guilty of posting subjects no one was interested in discussing.
Mhorndisk, however in multiple threads posts several replies in the first 15 minutes.  I think his record is here: https://forum.gaytorrent.ru/index.php?topic=51111.msg277877#msg277877
He posted 4 replies in the first ten minutes after the OP.  It was just a rant, he certainly was not inviting discussion,
It has nothing to do with the content.  It has to do with style.
I thought this board was meant to facilitate the free exchange of ideas, not simply be a platform to declare your beliefs.

P.S.  from the Rules for this Section:

" If you routinely post nothing but childish comments that do nothing to further the discussion, that is a NO NO. 

If you can't or won't further the discussion, then ignore this section."

Yes, as in the example above, where multiple, consecutive same-author responses appear in mere minutes on a thread, a Warning should be given, and after a few Warnings, a "Time-Out" given on that person's contributing on this board.

These space-wasting, machine-gun sprays of self-responses are really in the realm of cyberbullying, an attempt to "own" the thread and push aside opposing ideas.  And isn't that why we have the P&D forum at all -- to exchange ideas in an organized fashion?

To our administrator: PLEASE make and apply rules to govern these abuses, which are clearly on the rise.

And some are trying not only to own the thread, but own the entire board as well. They are doing this not only by the number of posts and self-replies, but by affecting the tone of the entire board with each of their "contributions." They seem to have bullied most users away.  Reasonable people don't have time for this shit.
