Zepaholic Posted January 31, 2008 Share Posted January 31, 2008 Since you asked, generally speaking a high post count on a message board indicates the person is a well established, avid contributor who abides by forum guidelines. This is not to say someone with less than say, 50 posts is not, but it is to say the trolls, morons and lunatics can almost always be identified and weeded out before attaining a significant post count. Yes, we do have spammers in the basement, but in that case their content reflects more upon them than their post count. Ultimately, it's just a tool for discernment. I'll invest more time and energy responding to a Zep Head than I will to a newbie. Nothing against newbies, but as we saw in the case of steve51 tonight, that's the demographic within which you'll find the trolls. If you or anyone else doesn't like or agree with my reply, that's fine. You asked the question and I provided an answer based on my own opinons, observations and experience. Steve, please define a "newbie". Is it a person new to the board and perhaps somebody who has been turned on to Zep in, say, the last 5 years? I'm a relative newbie to THIS board but have been an avid fan for over 30 years. If i have a low post count it's because everything i might be able to add has already been said. I really thought that i knew my Zep but you people......well, i'll stand aside and learn. I promise to be a good little newbie and follow protocol until i graduate to Zep head.
