This is a great forum! There almost no arguments or negative comments and that is hard to find in forum.
I do not have an answer as to why some people get off on having high post counts but they do! A post count on a forum is almost like a rank in the military. Not just here but on all forums
I would bet that if we didn't have post counts next to each members name there would be alot less motivation for the post whores to clutter up threads!
I enjoy the great conversations between members while discussing things related to the thread, it usually helps to work out the problems.
I'm just saying that there are certain members that always reply to threads with the same one liner response.... Could it be innocent? Sure I guess but more than likely they are trying to promote themselves through the post count rank structure.
