      No, not serious about the 5 portions of vegetables a day. ( That may mean something extra to the Brits ). But I would be pleased to see any recording of post totals removed from the forums. It would automatically also remove a lot of junk posting, and thereby lose us all some excess fat.

      The dress in which I unicycled was not THAT short, but in retrospect, I think that maybe the blue one would have been more appropriate to the terrain.

        A few years ago, I became briefly concerned about my post count. I wanted to get my "posts per day" lower*. I felt I was babbling and I was starting to get tired of hearing myself "talk". Then for a while, I just posted in the spam bin ("answering" all the spam), then I lost interest and went away. Then I came back because I missed all my friends here.

        I'm at 1.08 posts per day now, not that I care either way.

          To answer the original question...

          ...because they can.

          He's said before that he can not do that, but if he could, then he would.
          Gilby has said before that he could assign certain threads to not count towards total postcounts, if he had the ability to do so. But I severely doubt that if that facility was presented to him tomorrow, he would still do it.

          As for voting to restrict postcounts, does Gilby care about properly moderating the forum anymore? Look here for the ultimate proof; I invite you to pay particular attention to Gilby's postcount.

            Wow!

            Gilby's good at this!

              Isn't "properly moderated" an oxymoron? Oh, that's right, you hate free speech.

                Nope, it isn't.

                  I'm not going to explain why "proper moderation" doesn't restrict "free speech" all over again.

                  It's one of those things which is plain and simple, and yet some people will never understand, especially self-confessed twits who are the result of a science experiment gone wrong...

                        Whoa, I don't think there's any call here for getting personal.

                        Whatever your stance on moderation, proper or otherwise, nobody wants a flamewar.

                        Maybe explain it once, in a long detailed post and add a link to your sig.

                        If you want to make that post in MR, feel free.
