Why do people make such a big deal out of having many posts? I have seen a few occasions in the last day or two when people have remarked on a landmark number of posts; 500, 1000, 2000 etc. Why is this?
Do people think that having many posts makes them somehow superior to those with less? Surely, the fact that those people have posted so much dubious material should be something to shy away from rather than exclaimed. Most of those who I have seen make these remarks are not posting anything worth reading. It is, how do you say, 'spam'?
In my (obviously newbie:rolleyes: ) opinion (because I have less than 20 posts:rolleyes: ) there is more to be said for ten quality, well written posts than 2000 of utter rubbish.
Just my thoughts... Yours?
It's a form of cock-measuring contest. Nothing more.
I think members should think of each other and them selves in what ever way they want to, be it by posts (quality or quantity), how old they are, or any other way, it's their oppinion and I shall not infringe on it. If you think I'm a spamer just because I have 2070 posts, then go ahead, think that. I generally don't give 2 shits about what other members think of me (especially tonight, for certain reasons). Next...
I pretend to do stuff.

its stupid to judge people because of their postcount. thats all that needs to be said.
I have more posts than you :p :drink:
Yeah, I don't like judged by how many posts I have, but, if you want to judge me by that, you can. I won't stop you, I respect people by their personality and the quality of their posts. But to each their own.
See me, perfect example
Amazing member (yeah right), yet a quite low post count.
I take what n0e says way too seriously

Makes people feel good knowing they have so many post. Some people make contest out of it. I am currently working my way through the pages of posters, and am on page 7.
