It's not about counting posts.  Hell, a lot of brilliant math people 
can't do simple accounting.  Too machine like.  Computers are better at 
counting.  It's that people on the path to enlightenment shouldn't be 
worried too much about people over posting.  They should have just 
ignored those people. It was as if some post was going to contain that 
little morsel of knowledge that might suddenly pop them into 
enlightenment and they didn't want to miss it.  Crazy.
