The mechanics of the forum requires that each reply must be at least 20 characters in length. This is to help prevent spamming.

“20 characters” is used when someone has nothing to say, but has a frantic desire to spam the topic.
Do you know that “DFTT” means “Don’t feed the troll” and the whole phrase is exactly 20 characters?
