Annoying Suggestions

Why do people randomly suggests all their posts to others? I understand suggesting a post to my friends because we have common interests , I would suggest a post reporting bugs to others because they could have similar problems. But why would people want to randomly suggest all their posts when they don't want to interact. This sounds like spamming to me. I am new here.. but these are general matters of etiquette aren't they?

I really don't mind suggestions. Being new here, I am sure I am missing a lot. But yes, I understand where you coming from.

@TexanTornado Darn I had about 25 suggestion s lol and none of these people interacted . I prefer to focus on active followers.. you only have so much time each day.

@granny2015 I agree on other sites its against the rules and we could block them.. here I can't seem to do much except delete the suggestions one by one.

I used the suggestion button just once, because I know it would interest to a friends. But I get suggestion everyday from a guy (it's really annoying).

Spamming is something which we may face a lot. It was always the case on other sites, too. Unfortunately, this is what destroys many great sites.

I thought of suggesting to be like sharing on Bubblews. You suggest posts that you think are interesting to people you think would like them. I didn't think that people suggested their own posts. I don't know what the intent is, though, as I haven't seen an official word.

@allknowing You mean you've written a post on suggestion? Well I haven't read that yet.. maybe I should. But isn't this almost like spamming?

@sofssu This is an option that the site has placed before us and so it cannot be spamming.

@allknowing Misuse of these options is considered spamming. When people misuse the option to post /contribute to the discussion here with adverts and stuff we call them spams and report them; don't we?

suggesting you'r post is one of the ways to interact though. I don't usually suggest them, but I might if there is something I want more opinions about, and if someone suggest me something, its just a way to make sure I won't miss it. if someone is really spamming you none stop you can always unfollow him if it gets too bad

@Boonie1 I have nothing against suggestions; though I have not used the button yet.. But I don't want to read every post someone writes.. I guess I'll take your advice if things get out of hand. Thank you.
