    I've noticed over the last several days that for every three posts I make, only one is added to my total. Have other members experienced this?

    Old math: 1 + 1 + 1 = 3
    New math: 1 + 1 + 1 = 1

    Have you been posting in the Political forums or threads that have eventually been sent to the Wasteland?

    Could you posts have been deleted for breaking forum rules? :confused:

    Through investigative searching through his postings, I conclude with 100% accuracy that he has indeed posted into the Political Discussions. Therefore, I must come to the conclusion, and further reading of MR rules, that his posts in said forum do not count towards his total for avatarial objective.

    Your recent posts to the thread 'Bush nominates Harriet Miers for Supreme Court' won't be counted 'cause it's in the political forums.

    I have posted in those threads, but none have found their way into the Wasteland (as of yet). As for your other point about me being a rulebreaker, bite your tongue. :)

    Well and truly bitten. :eek:

    Still, political posts don't count towards overall post count.

    Was it necessary to get me all revved up this early in the morning?

    Best rule of thumb is to never post in the political forums, nothing good ever comes out of there, Best to stay away and heed the skull and crossbones on the door. ;)

    Ohh... if I really have to explain my weedy jokes. :eek:

    Scull (which should have been spelled skull in the original context) = An oar or a small rowing boat.

    Row = another word for argument, quarrel etc.

    Okay, Demi-God ... do you care to share your opinion on the legitimacy issue? :)

    With all your posts in this thread alone, which is basically guaranteed a spot in the wasteland, your new new math is likely to be 1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1=1.

    Oh well. I've been steadily moving towards an avatar for three years. Patience is a great thing!
