Okay, I'm a baby player here, so please excuse my general noobiness. I just joined Smogon, and one of the first things I did was make an RMT. Now, in the latest RMT I had, I was faced with a conundrum. I had made my post, but nobody had replied to it. So I had bumped it, and again, no replies. A few days later, I bumped it again, breaking 2 rules: Double Posting and Double Bumping. Now, here's the problem. After the second bump, I got a few replies on my puny post. But then, a moderator locked the post for cited rule breaks. So, the problem with the rules is that it prevents your ability to complete the goal you made your post to accomplish (Getting a rate). For example, I if I had bumped the post again, breaking the rules, and nobody had replied, just like what happened the first time I bumped it, it would have been lost within the endless jumble of RMTs made, and nobody would have ever rated it or locked it for breaking rules. But since I got rated, that drew the attention of the moderator, who then locked it because of the rule break, thus preventing me from being able to finally bask in the glory of having people improve my team. Do you see how this doesn't work? Or is it just me?
