    you know what i love? (that's a rhetorical question; i'm about to tell you what i love.)

    i love it when someone logs on and responds to a whole bunch of threads in different forums, so that for a brief minute their name dominates the 'last post' column. like, about 15 minutes after i get to work and delay the start of my work day by catching up here... maybe i'll hit current events, general apple tech, hardware, software, web design, and community discussion. and if i post in all of them, within a short enough time frame, sonofslim shows up half a dozen times on the main forums page.

    i can always tell when someone's "done a lap" and caught up on all the threads they've been participating in.

    but is there a name for that? should there be one?

    How about "going around the block" :p Then you can say you've "been around the block". If you do it more than once, you can say you've "been around the block a few times", which will make people think you're wise in a "worldly" sort of way.
    :D :D

    nah, post whoring is when you're like "yes, i agree." on 10 threads. i've been trying to come up with some terrible pun on 'last post' but i've been dry so far.
