Idle curiosity. What factors into post counts? Publius_Maximus' profile says he has 176 posts at this point. Only 169 show on the board. They're all in this thread: http://www.usmessageboard.com/the-r...d-liberal-just-like-our-founding-fathers.html That leaves 7 posts unaccounted for. Do PM's or VM's or other input contribute to post counts?
