    I voted no. But NOT because it's not fair. I just don't see a need for it. I'm pretty sure JCOS and others would still spam regardless if it counted towards their post count. Eh, you get rid of post count's everyone will start touting their join dates or dick size, or somethin'. braggin' rights are for fun, not to be taken seriously.

    Disagree. It puts too much focus on postcount. How about just not caring?

    Burke,

    As a practical matter it'd be very difficult to implement and enforce. Who decides what is "germane?". In effect the Moderators would have to read and approve of every single post in every single forum besides the Gen one. For basically no practical gain to the site. It would also confuse new members.

    I think I understand your goal, but I honestly doubt you'll get there using this.

    Regards,
    -Bouncer-

    Hell, just get of the post count thingy here altogether. I'll still be here whether you all like it or not.
