Flagging every mock draft from now on.
The most egregious offenders are repeatedly posting slight modifications as a new FanPost...it is spam. This has been occurring since October, which is ridiculous.
Your take on a mock draft is equivalent to a comment, i.e. your opinion on the same subject as another FanPost. Your take on a mock draft should be a comment, not another mock FanPost.
If you want to blow your "mock-wad" every week, please post on SB Nation's dedicated site to mock drafts, and aptly named, Mocking the Draft here. Please, spare us your constantly fluctuating, and indecisive, mock jizz/FanPosts.
Personally, I have had it with individual users posting 5,000,000 variations of their own mock before the season even ended.
I am flagging every mock from here on as spam.
UPDATE: To be clear, I am not against mock drafts. I love the draft, as many of us do. It's football Christmas.
If you have created a mock and have a new version, just simply update your original FanPost and make a comment in it that it has been updated. It will be bumped to the top of the FanPosts page (the tab at the top of the homepage that reads, "FanPosts.")
You may even want to append your title with something like "Update 1," "Update 2" and so on.
The point is that an update or new version doesn't necessitate a new FanPost.
Also, if a mock FanPost is already active, simply post your version in the comments. Then people can discuss your particular take on the topic using the nested reply feature.
Someone already created one mock thread for everyone to post their own mocks in. Rather than using it, people continue to repetitively create new FanPosts for their own mocks.
A mock is a topic just like any other. Creating a new thread for a topic that already has many, many threads is spam. It is no different than if people posted "My Take on Why Brodie is Better" FanPosts multiple times per day rather than participating in the thread already created for it.
Many of us tried to address this nicely months ago when the behavior started and we were ignored. It has become out of control.
