Turn 'em off. Who cares? I mean, in real life do we wear badges that say "I've spoken 3875891873 times since mm/yyy"? Besides, post counts are pretty subjective. I could go into every thread and post "meh" and get like 1200 more posts in 50 minutes and feel oh so cool...

I thought post counts were here (including date of signup) to tell people who might be a troll and who has been around. I used to not care about my post count but nowadays, I actually look at it and pat myself on the back. J/K

Sure this predjudice on both sides and post count arguments can be pretty childish but I've gotten used to it. However, if they decide to change the policy, I could care less. Change can be good.

Post counts are a part of message boards.. have been for years and years. Boards would be kind of lame without post counts

I wouldnt mind turning them off in the chat threads, though physically I dont think its possible.

I really agree with you there. I actually like seeing how many posts I have, and I'm not upset that people have far more than I do.

It's an interesting statistic that I enjoy looking at.

I like post counts. I've been trying to get to 10000 before my four-year anniversary here.


I'm not going to make it though.

I still think that every melon post should be equal to ten regular posts.

I voted don't care, as I'm not gonna cry either way. Having them does let me see how pitiful my life has become though.
