It doesn't.

When users are in an argument, to try and look cool they say "You are arguing just to boost your post count".

It serves no purpose what-so-ever.


INB4 someone replies to this saying "you did that to boost your post count".

Feminism will be outlawed. Mostly because it's a backwards idiotic viewpoint that doesn't serve any real progressive purpose.

I personally would like post count and Join date removed. There is a sense of entitlement some people feel when they have a significant amount of posts or joined prior to Vancouver's cup run season. This entitlement is not justified, especially when these posters riff on newer members. I do understand that some new members troll and cause conflict, but that is what Mods are for.

I feel the same way, I've seen people rip on others because they have a higher post count and feel they are superior, and join dates to, I can't remember when exactly I joined but I've been a fan since I was six years old, the '94 run.

Yeah, number of posts doesn't mean that much. Some people around here have too much to say ;)

Orland Kurtenbach and Dennis Kearns had just been torched 8-1 by the Habs, but they still took time to come out to meet us, some fellow BC boys who were playing hockey in Montreal. THAT"S what being a Canuck is!

Every time I see that someone joined later than I did and has a higher post count than me, sometimes double or triple of what I have now, I sit back and say "wow, that person needs to spend a little bit of time away from here". But whatever, it's a forum, we have friends here and post counts don't mean a thing.

It's the only thing I have left...

Meh, kinda fun to see how many posts you've racked up over the years. I see no point in taking it away. It should be pretty evident that, whenever one uses their post count/join date in an attempt to somehow bolster their opinion's validity, they're likely running out of anything relevant to say.

I'm for keeping them both because there's nothing wrong with them, every forum has them, but I agree that they don't mean much.
