I have kind of changed my mind about this from what I said before. It still doesn't really matter but I dislike it for a few reasons:

  • It's utterly pointless.
  • I don't see what possible enjoyment you could get from it.
  • It wastes resources on the site. (That's a fairly minor issue though, we have plenty of storage space and chat can handle dozens of people, so one person spamming on their own doesn't really hurt.)
  • When people come onto chat all they see is just spam, instead of the recent conversation. It could be some people only left for a minute.
  • Asking if you can spam is a stupid question.

In conclusion, you probably aren't gonna get banned for spamming when there is no one else there, as long as you stop when others enter the chat room.

Yes, but you have to stop when someone else enters or awakens from being idle. Also, if someone is not idle but obviously AFK, I wouldn't spam then, because you aren't technically alone and it would be tricky to explain if they came back and saw you.

I disagree. It shouldn't be done at all: it's against the rules. If you wanna spam open up a blank page and do so to your heart's content.

Pokemaster said it was okay as long as it wasn't disurpting anything and that the spammer be alone. I see your point though.
Well not that I have a problem with it, I just thought the right thing to suggest was what was according to the Rules. I agree with your answer though.
What's with people and spamming these days >.>
Somthing about just SLAMMING you head,butt, hand, and other parts on the keyboard makes people like me Happy!
Wait wut? Butt? ....
