Just guessing…is there any point in people growing his/her personal post-count by posting in the off-topic forum?
I have already noticed that my personal post-count added one when adding a reply in an off-topic forum whose thread is “Do you smoke?”:o :o
So we could have many forum-gurus and forum-monkeys out there with a little percentage of their posts being useful and helping really to the community.
Instead of it, one can become a forum-monkey by posting…“Yeah, I like rolls-royce”…or “yeah, Tony Blair will win”…
I have seen many forums (Linuxquestions forum, for instance) where off-topic forum don’t count up your personal posts. I think it makes sense.
What do you think?
