To spam complaints or not to spam complaints, that is the question. Can't Post

From a previous post of mine that wandered into the very nature of complaints....

I can understand the logic behind those who nerd rage over the nerd rage. I have to willfully avoid it myself - like with Mass Effect 3. I check the boards over there every once and a while to see if they've changed their minds on the ending (which is atrocious and wastes 150+ hours of playing the whole series), but I have to restrain myself from complaining repeatedly about that ending. But I don't complain repeatedly because I know that when people were complaining repeatedly about Mass Effect 2, it annoyed me with the negativity and I wondered why these people would hang around to spam complaints.

So yes, I wonder why people hang around to mostly complain. I use to chalk it up to people trolling. But maybe I understand it a little.

Mostly, I just confuse myself.

Perhaps I should post in the feedback forum (edit: which I am doing now, yay!) and ask the moderators to moderate complaint spamming better... but then I was once a moderator and I know they can't be everywhere at once. But then I notice that if I can pick up on the same people complaining about the same stuff all the time then why can't they...

And then I note that other people's opinions really don't affect how I feel about something. Seriously, people hated Dragon Age 2, but I played it and I dug it. In the end, it doesn't really matter if someone disagree's with me on The Hobbit trailers. I suppose it just gets annoying when I regard it as spam... when they seem to make an effort to get that dig in on multiple threads.

So please, moderators, I don't think we should keep people from complaining. What I DO think should be moderated is the spamming of those complaints. For those who don't know what I mean by spamming I mean this - you repeat your complaint about a subject over and over again and/or spread it over multiple threads. Please, stop. Anyone who spends a moderate amount of time on the board gets your opinion. Loud and clear.

King Arthur: You know much that is hidden oh Tim.

Tim: Quite.
