Too many posts are for the purpose of raising the Post Count of a forum member. They even come out and state that this is their intent. I think it is a waste or my time to read a post where someone says that they really have nothing to contribute--but this post was to reach a magic number of posts. It's kind of like a little kid jumping up and down screaming "look at me". I do not understand the need for keeping track of the number of posts that someone makes. Often, it is treated as a "status thing" and appears to encourage silly posts. Now that we are starting over--this is a good time to stop counting. I just got a stroke of genius--I should post a poll and see how many people agree with me. The only problem is that I hate polls even more than I hate post counts.
