I don't think it's jealousy. It's great that cols has 3k in posts. That's something. But deserving of its own thread? Really? Under "general discussion"? Probably would have drawn less "heat" (if you really wanna call it that) in the off topic forum.
I think a lot of people use the general discussion forum as the off topic forum.
But nonetheless, congrats, cols, and Merry Christmas, all!
Jealousy is a state of mind- and none of you here would I waste that kind of energy on.
What this is, for me anyway is simply this- I literally despise threads that are dedicated to high post count. I feel that being a helpful member speaks for itself. If that had been what this thread were about, then thats a different story- but its not- its dedicated to having 3000! Nothing at all was initially said about being helpful.
How about we start threads for low post count! Wonder how many there will be.
Being helpful has nothing at all to do with the numbers!
