    The...
    I know where you're coming from, but it's called participation. While not everyone's posts are of great technical significance, they are, nonetheless, part of the overall fabric of DBSTalk.com and as such, have value and add to the depth, breadth and color of the board.

    Think of this site as a large room, like a hotel ballroom, full of people with common interests, with multiple conversations going on simultaneously. If only a few people posted here, this would indeed be a very quiet and a less interesting place.

    Personally speaking, even though I have posted many times on a wide variety of topics, I'm not much on keeping up with post counts, but like the M&M guys, this congratulatory thread does exist and it's nice to be recognized for the effort on occasion.

    Peace, and be well!

    Says the poster nearing the top of the mountain...:D:lol:

    Seriously though...there are plenty of excellent contributors here with all sorts of post levels. All are welcome, all are valuable, and all are appreciated.

    This little thread is just a way to express "thanks" in 15 seconds of fame for their efforts. :)

    A stopped clock is right twice per day (thinking of the old analog kind).

    Make a few thousand posts and odds are some of them will be worthwhile.
