I'm confused. The film suggests that post counts do not represent how worthy and valuable the poster is, in fact the opposite is true. Yet the respected moderators, typically have the highest post count. Hmmm:confused:


Your point is valid, and I'm not trying to be harsh, but there are exceptions.

Post counts mean nothing on boards that allow games and unrelated chit-chat. In fact, I've seen boards remove post counts and ranks from public view.

Admins and Mods generally have higher post counts than anyone else because they've been members longer.

I'd say at DBSTalk, post counts aren't entirely meaningless, but certainly it's not an indicator of being more valuable than others. I've seen very thoughtful and useful posts from folks with very little post counts.

It's usually pretty easy to tell the good ones from the bad ones .. I never look at post count as an indicator for that.

Exception! Exception! (Duh!) ;)

Seriously, though, the Youtube video was not at all boring (IMHO) -- mainly because the lecture was delivered in that snarky Brit accent we've come to love from John Cleese.
