    It says I have 10,180 posts (including this one), but I can only find 10,163 (not counting this one). The others must be the ones EZ deleted (read "moderated").
    My sister is so hard on me.

    Publidude II (The Sequel :eek: ) had several posts end up in the trash. Posts not hard deleted remain in the count. Outside of full on spammers, few and far between are the posts that are hard deleted.

    In short, your trash counts in your average - post wisely, Grasshopper.

    There's a fun exercise.... determine who has the most posts in the trash.


    And.... Go!​

    I think you miscounted. I found 10,164 posts which included the one with the gif of the guy kicking the cat.

    Some people delete their own posts. There were several threads devoted to punishing one poster who did this routinely in the Flame zone this past year. Are such posts still counted?

    The 10,164 included the first post in this thread.

    You and a few others sure seemed to think that cat kicking was something I advocated when it was anything but that. Near to two years later and you still bring it up as if I was promoting it. :confused:

    As near as I can tell from my now several days viewing the board from the Mod Control Panel, such posts are counted in total post count.
    EDIT - Wrong info - keep reading.

    :eusa_shhh: And Mods can click on them to see them.
