I know whose posts to watch out for, and it's got nothing to do with their post count and everything to do with how entertaining they are to me. Legends like Canadian_Cheesehead, Mercer Boy, Brutally Huge, and Culboarder spring to mind when I think of entertainment in its purest form... or at least, at the Cafe.
The thing with post counts, is that they're there. They're there and someone's gonna recognize the fact that so-and-so has a million posts and is gonna create a milestone topic for 'em if that person is awesome enough... or in some cases, maybe not. I dunno. I'm know I'm not around here as much as I used to be, but back when I was patrolling the General Talk forum I'd throw out some love to the people who deserved it... or in VHawk's case, was in desperate need of it. And if I was the recipient of a milestone thread, I'd try and make it somewhat worthwhile with a long, drawn-out speech to cap things off.
I've liked the idea of getting rid of post-counts for a long time. If people stick around long enough, they'll get the idea of whose posts are worth their time. But it's still no biggie - I never understood why a few milestone threads on the front page was a problem for some people. Post counts... no post counts... it doesn't matter to me. I won't go barging into Arlo or Menyak's houses to threaten them over it anytime soon. 'Cause that'd just be CRAZY. But I'm really just writing this to kill time before I head out to dinner. So basically, yeah - this is just another nonsensical rambling. woot.
Hugs and kisses,
You're #1 in my books Cuna.
