I agree with the poster you disagreed with.
Perhaps I'm a freak of the norm in terms of bulking, but even as a lacto-vegetarian [no meat,fish,eggs] I've put on 20lbs [164-184 lbs] in the last 3 months and never eat more than 4 nutrition/calorie packed meals a day [ a serving of either fruit, avocado, nuts or yogurt in between- I count those as snacks]. There's no jink food at all in my diet and I'm making sure all my nutrition, calorie, and protein needs are all met primarily rather than focusing on 8 meals a day. The bulk gains are now coming very easily and I now even get hungry and have an appetite - 2 things that never happened to me before.
So to someone who generally has a lack of appetite and therefore has adjustment problems switching to such a volume of meals per day, you may find it is possible to achieve a good bulk size with not so many meals.... just eat smart, and the total intake should definately not be a little or medium.
