Does anyone else think that...

its so stupid how in each post there has to be at least 5 letters. what if you want to give a clear yes or no answer, or just say a word but it happenes to be 4 letters. I was just posting in the "rate UFC 76" thread and the score i gave it was less than 5 letters, so i added extra punctuation marks and i look like an idiot. Back when we had the "word association" thread there were many times i had a word which was 4 letters, even 3. This is a stupid ass rule and should be changed. back in the basketball forum its a minumum of 2 letters, which is perfect. This stupid rule has bothered me since the beggining.

If your answer is anything less than 5 letters than is it really worth posting? The whole point of a forum is to argue and state your opinion. You should back it up with facts or your beliefs and its pretty impossible to do that in less than 5 letters and still add something meaningful to a discussion.

There werent many times yoy had 3 or 4 letters because the 5 letter rule has been around since before I was here. Its not even a big deal. If you cant handle typing "..." then you have some major issues.

The fact that you are making posts less then five letters should be flashing lights.

If your rating an event you should be giving it a score and then stating why you gave it that. No one gives a crap what you rate it unless your gonna state exactly what you liked/disliked about it. If its too much effort for you to type then maybe ya shouldnt even bother responding.
