There was a thread about keeping or removing post counts.

I made a poll because 'thefish uk' posted:

"I'd have made this into a poll but I clicked "Submit New Thread" too early instead of adding a poll. Damn!"

and also to see who was for and who was against the removal of post counts

didnt you read the other thread? It causes spammers, who attempt to post and post useless messages in order to obtain a higher status.

yes i read it, and i think the majority of people with high post counts did not spam to get them.

It does not cause spammers. It just helps us spot them. The argument for removing them is that all members would be on a similar playing field.

yes i agree. I really dont think it causes that many spammers, and if it does, then it obvious. If you joined this month and have like 800 posts, odds are either spammed or have become totally addicted.

My point is, how does one's post count cause them to be a spammer? it's just a measure of quantity of posts, not quality.

I think you should keep it, 2776 (the highest one with the post count) spent all his time helping UKL I dont know, and it shouldnt go to waste.
