In online forums power-posting is the term used to describe a user who posts a large number of empty or useless messages in order to increase their number of posts. On some forums special privileges may be given to users who contribute a specific number of posts. When power posting users will post meaningless replies such as “LOL” or “I agree/disagree.” These posts may increase the users post count but they do not contribute anything meaningful to the forum discussion itself.
