A crime? No... but it does add to the noise to signal ratio considerably so it is not acceptable unless it is in a test forum created for that purpose.

Not a crime, but does create more clutter via the forums. But creating "test" threads in the Development Section is really not acceptable. Are you simply trying to see if you have the capability to create a thread or do you have a valid, legitimate development thread you are trying to create?
There are forum rules regarding threads, as they are enforced.

18 XDA Code 447 - Creation of Test Threads
Current through Pub. L. 93-58. (See Public Laws for the current XDA Council.)
Quote:
(a) Creating threads for test purposes is the unlawful creation of a thread with the sole intention of testing. Every thread created for testing, without any legal goal, or any other kind of willful, deliberate, malicious and premeditated creation of test threads; or committed in the perpetration of, or attempt to perpetrate, any test threads; or perpetrated from a premeditated design unlawfully and maliciously to effect the perfect organization of the XDA forums by creating test threads, is spam in the first degree.
Any other spam is spam in the second degree.
(b) Within the special interwebzial jurisdiction of XDA,
Whoever is guilty of spam in the first degree shall be judged by the Judge and may or may not be trolled by friendly XDA moderators;
Whoever is guilty of spam in the second degree, shall be reminded to read the rules again, and may or may not be trolled by friendly XDA moderators.
