    Never said it was. Was just comparing how I had a lot less posts than people who had been here for a much shorter period of time

    postcount != content

    Its not how much you post that matters. Anyone can post a few thousand "lol, omg funn" posts. Its what you post.

    I didn't mean you rochen, and not even these forums, it's just I've noticed around the place that some people think high post numbers demonstrate something

    what the something is I don't know

    I personally think the way vB.org and SitePoint is setup is a fairly nice idea. The way no post counts are shown without actually going into the user's profile.

    You saucy boy....

    haha I just quoted some line out of Romeo And Juliet. I don't like Shakespeare either. I'd much rather read a story written by poe, even though some of the stuff he writes about is so far out there it's not even funny.

    Hmm....the first part of the discussion about the value of post count is great, but then now it seems that it has become a "increase your post count" type of thread.....

    Errr... These types of threads are almost enough to make me switch off post increments for the Lounge.
