    Now the interesting question is how long will it take for there to by 10x2000? We won't see that till after MWSF03, or later.

    I wasn't going to comment on this, but when you say this sort of thing you really leave yourself open to abuse. You become fair game, but I'm usually not out hunting.....:D

    I wasn't the first to bring it up, someone else, b2tm, opened that door. Besides sometimes a good taunting is educational....

    Now go away or I will taunt you a second time!

    Its a Monty Python quote (Holy Grail)

    The French Knights give a nasty taunting to King Aruthur and crew. Now where's that link?

    question...

    is it just me...

    or is there now what seems to be a rat race to get to 1000 posts going on??

    before it was about the avatar...and now the focus seems to be double that...

    well, the boundary of excellence (or excessiveness;)) is always rising. I just got to the 500 mark, but it's no longer like it's anything worthy of (much) recognition. You're setting the standards of what a 'high' post count is considered to be Eye, and those playing follow-the-leader have to keep to ever-increasing levels to stand out.

    As I've said before, 'high' post count is irrelevant, its the content that's the matter. We've had several threads on the subject, but it basically comes down to writing interesting, witty or relevant posts. By just chiming in and saying you agree/disagree, that's cool, etc. adds nothing to the thread.

    I go over to SpyMac about once a week to see what's new, I know I'm not the only one, but there was a thread there last week that was 'Let's make the longest thread ever' OMG, it was so friggin ludicrous, on and on about nothing, just to up your post count. The last I saw it was around 350 posts. Now if you look at any of the longer post here in MacRumors, they have intelligent conversation and debate, something you migh actually want to read, not playing word games throught posting.

    Ok, said my peace for now. That's my rant for the day....:D

    very true duke...

    but the problem that can arise here is if one is away from a specific thread for a few hours during the day....he/she can get completely lost in what's going on (even if they are really interested in the topic)...

    and to be honest...it is a bit teadious to spend 25 mins reading through all of the posts only to find out that someone has already said what u would have...thus preventing u from adding anything relevant to the thread...

    at least that happens to me sometimes... :( ;)

    I'm pretty such that most of us would whole-heartedly agree with that. By and large, that's what it keeps to here at macrumors too. For evidence of that, there's the Mac's and Politics v.2 thread, which makes for very interesting reading (although it took me a rather long time to do so).

    Anyway, i prefer to look at the date joined, rather than the no. of posts a person has had. Having been a member here for over a year, or supporting macrumors (ie, demi-god(ess)) makes me respect a person a whole lot more than having 1k+ posts.

    Of course its going to happen. You wake up in the morning and all the Europeans and Aussies have made their additions to the threads, and you have to play catchup. But what I'm talking about is if you don't have anything to add to the conversation, don't post. I've tried hard to make sure every post has something interesting or worthy of posting. Even if I say I agree, I back it up with why or give examples. You had to get me back on the rant wagon, now didn't you?:D

    Obviously all of us have had some of the I agree posts over our time here at MacRumors, but I agree with Duke and Eye. To keep posts on topic and yet fresh is difficult to do sometimes. The Macs and Politics thread is over 280 posts now, and is growing. It is though a very interesting thread. What I had to see is people insite a flamewar, and drag a thread off of topic. That is the thing that is so frustrating, although I have done it before :rolleyes:

    As far as the 1,000 posts. Well my goal is to make the 2000 posts mark with people saying, "Man B2TM never posts trash, and is one intelligent MoFo."
    :cool: Call me Dr. Postwell.....;)

    I never really look at the number of post or date, some of the more intelligent posts are from newbies who have been lurking or just joined and come in when something needs to be said. I treat everyone here like I do in the real world. Everyone is equal and the idiots make themselves obvious, then I ignore them. Same thing here, you can join the conversation or taunt and flame, I don't put up with that, but you have to be tactful, because showing that they've gotten to you is what they want.

    When I first started posting I remember a thread started by a lower post count individual that basicallly was flame bait and it opened up a huge debate. Buy he never came back to defend himself, he was just inciting a post riot.
