As for me being back,
well.....could be I have a morbid curiosity,
or I'm a glutton for punishment,......
how about, STF is like a fungal growth in which there is no cure.....me, I think all of the above.
I’m not going to address everything, or everybody, so please don’t feel like I ignoring you. So, let me say thanks to those of you who were supportive.
There are a few that I do wish to address…….
…..bushy and dannal, very funny, no, really….very funny. I did not laugh much at what you two wrote but in the back of my head I knew I would have been LMAO if I wasn’t so pissed (US pissed, not UK pissed)
…..No Voet, I don’t think Andrei’s post was as nice as it seems. At first yes, and if you had not of brought further attention to it with your post I would have probably just continue on. Maybe I am wrong, but is just seems like a nice way to say, “Don’t let the door hit you on the way out.” Then it morphed into something bigger than that because of the word “better”. Was “better” being philosophical or narcissistic…..
Philosophical – “The grass is always greener…..”
Narcissistic – “STF is all that.”
…… because he believes that it won’t happen. Well, either way, I have to admit, there is truth in having that belief. I won’t deny that STF has a lot to offer that other places don’t. Of course, like I stated earlier, I could be wrong about what he meant by his statement….It has been known to happen once or twice in my life.

if is it just that some posts got lost, what's the big deal? it's not money, you know. or does post count matter for anything? maybe you DL faster with more posts ? see less ads ?

Am I missing something here?
Nobody likes to go backwards……It gages our accomplishments, how active we are (“thanks” posts aren’t enough to do it…it takes those plus a lot of stupid jokes and inane banter posts….oh, and of course, a few links)
…..besides, if post count wasn’t so important why have it or why have a poll for a new rank system. Yes, I know, I’m a contributor so the post count has no effect on my rank…..SO, it makes it less important? Btw, money only have value to those that put value on it.
1. About eight months ago I started noticing the post count dropping, but is was 1 or 2 to 10, here and there. Over time, with observing trend, I figured the reason…..no need to go into all that because it was confirmed within this thread. So, I have
been keeping track. (OCD :wink , but I am not obsessive compulsive about my obsessive compulsiveness)
2. I have also notice that in the “Fun & Games” forum that a tread’s shelf life is one year from the last post, stickies and open polls excluded, and then deleted.
3. I have noticed the “pruning”
4. I have noticed that my post count was not effected by #’s 2 & 3

They get all the thanks, they get all the karma.
Seems quite unfair to see very dedicated members not receive the same recognition posting their freaking ass off for... Comics, TV, Anime, Music, and even Software........
You can't blame yourself for posting and not being appreciated as much as others.
It has to do with the members just grabbing and not thanking.
That is very true…..Look, I am not trying to begrudge anyone their due. There is a “huge film” poster that will get more “thanks” for 1 post than I will get for 100, but that is on the “clicker” and not the “poster”
Yes, I did realize that before I started
, but I had decided that I wanted to become an active contributor (poster of links), rather than just a passive contributor (sharer of links), to this site.
Then why?... Two reasons
1. It was a forum that did not have a lot of posters.
2. (The biggest) With bandwidth limitations I found that I could do more. Hell, I would like to take over that forum…..Ummm, I’m not trying to kick any one out
….. I meant someday, maybe.
TO make myself clear this was what was going through my head when I saw the drop in post count. Obviously, all I could get out was the above rant……sorry about that, but with other pressures in my life that was the “proverbial straw” I like it here, and don’t hate anyone…..(even the one who are to foolish to see that I am always correct in all my opinions because I am superior…..ok ok I nearly choke to death on that one) But seriously, I hope you all understand....you don't have to agree with my reasoning.....just understand.
PS just think of this a therapy.....now where the hell is that clinical psychiatrist
