Are Post Counts REALLY Necessary?

Let's remove post counts! why are they necessary? its proof that they lead to unchecked posting; maybe a habitual troller or two might disappear once his/her numbers disappear; we'd all be equals and isn't that what Bono would want? Plus, it would be one less thing our beloved server would have to deal with...Any thoughts???

I believe we've had this discussion before, but it was the wide consensus that we like to see them. And, frankly, I don't know of a single forum that doesn't have them.

I know I will never be the largest poster in this place--and nor do I necessarily want to--but I enjoy seeing how many times I posted, if only to see how slowly it upticks these days, compared to the old days.

Obviously having the post count show has not had any affect on my unchecked rampant posting.

It was just an feeble-minded idea of an elderly statesman...

If we get rid of post counts, how will we know if I'll ever regain my postwhore throne?
