(Note the keyword 'implies')
    However, the job title or PhD are indications with some proven (might not be perfect) test cases. Therefore, the indication should be much more accurate than the post count from a public forum, which no ones knows who's behind another screen.

    I've seen ppl repeatly using meaningless posts to boost up the count, or simply because s/he is too bored. Do you consider ppl have 500 posts of "hahahhahaha....", "mE VeRy GOOD aT bADdy..." as a trust worthy source of information? I am sure you can't use the above to obtain a job or a phD, right?

    i think siggy is a good idea though... for eg. my signature would be :
    K!LL3R $M@SH
    Dink would probably be :
    Save the forest ( panda ) and prevent global warming because it will melt northpole and south pole ( polar bear )
    Kwun would probably be :
    Look at my baby!

    and that's EXACTLY why i think signature is pointless. what has any of the above gotta do with badminton discussion other than distracts us away from it?

    The thing about posts in some forums r often mistaken as the seniority of the members.Those who posted less than 100 r considered newbies by those who posted more.That's why ppl race for posting more n more,so that they wont be consideren as a newbie in the forum.Ppl r also tend to listen or looking forward for someone who has posted "more",as they think that man knows more.

    But this doesnt applicable all the time,since i have seen alot of new members..their posts r considered quite matured.The different is just about the time they joined..some knew this forum from a long time ago,and some just knew it currently..

    Personally, I don't have that feeling here! But I do feel it in some local HK discussion groups!
    Those web masters just wanna entice people to post more and more (SPAM) and gain sort of popularity of their site! And that is stupid!

    maybe there could be some sort of rating system....where mods are able to highlight credible posts and give out credibility points to posters? but again some things can be subjective...

    There is no such thing as perfection.

    Post counts are not trustworthy coz some members just post meaningless stuff to buff up their post count to brazillion numbers

    and to highlight this, please refer to the below & above post as a perfect examples

    Just because your post count is higher than mine mean that your accusation about me being 'being on medication' hold any water!

    Speaking of water, I need to go get some to swallow some pills.

    Readers, please take note that this is all written in light heartedness as well as another example about high post count. Cheers.
