Spam is un-needed or utterly useless posts, often used to get to the rank of Elite Member. If you spam to do this, it often results in a forum ban. An example of spam would be posting "Hi" over and over on a thread. It's considered spamming if all of the most recent posts are yours or if you post 5 times within a 15 minute period. If you have been caught spamming/bumming you will be warned then banned for a certain amount of time!
