What's up with "Last Poster Wins" anyway?

Yep, it's this annoying bluish Zexal turtle appearing once again at your recent blogs column

This time, the topic is the "Last Poster Wins" thread, arguably the most visited one in all of Fun and Games.
(link here: http://bmgf.bulbagarden.net/f285/last-poster-wins-[v6-0]-138985/)

Yep, this is the sixth thread about this game! And it currently has more than 50.000 posts and 200.000 views! How much do you have to wait before archiving this one and going to seventh? Anyway, that's not a real problem, for the jokes in it are creative... Except, they are not!

Not only does this thread display the least possible creativity a Fun and Games can have (prolly minus the counting games), it's also the most rapidly-expanding. I mean, there were times where I posted on it, visited somewhere else, posted there, and upon returning, I was 10 posts behind!

Out of these 10 posts, of course, the 8 at least are ping-ponging between two users. Okay, guys, if you wanna chat, there is a Free Chat thread as well as those little thingies called PRIVATE MESSAGES! Not only that, you don't have to find a reason to call "Win! Win! Win! Win!" every time you "Ping! Pong! Ping! Pong!"

I think that this thread could be much better if it had at least some genuine humour in it. I mean, why do all these people like posting that much in it, anyway?

I have stopped posting there for a long time, but I still have the urge to ask you.

WHADDAYA SAY?

    Except that it was intended to be a bit more creative than a simple "I win." Otherwise, it turns into a chat thread!
    Not to mention you fooled yourself. It DIDN'T become anything more than people just posting "I win" over and over like intended. You don't get THAT?!
