Ok it seems a lot of members on here like to just put repost in a new thread. i think it would be a good idea to start handing out infractions if the post just contains the words repost, now if the user was to post repost, and then the link to the first thread and stating why its a repost it should be ok. But not just REPOST, it clutters up the thread and well the TOS does say constructive responses to threads.

I think it's a great idea IF it was sent out as a message to all users on OCN (to much work)
and only if they type repost and nothing more as you say.

The only bad thing about this idea is what are they gonna post if repost isn't allowed?

If they are gonna "repost troll" it they can at least bring source on the reposted.

just a thought but most people Do read the OP, you should give it a try, just incase you dont feel like reading the entire and very short thing, i made it red, bold, underlined and slanted. enjoy
