(It’s true, I did; but I bet no one has been noticing I’ve been at ~5030 for awhile)
For those of you who are hurt over the deflation of your..uh.. e-peen?..as some of you all would say…dozens of **locked threads** have been cleaned out. Browse through the first 30 pages of OT and you’ll note the minimal amount of closed garbage. This comment is in response to the post-loss-complaint-thread that has just disappeared.
Those who lost the most posts are the ones who; obviously; actively posted in those threads (not just some stickmen thread as someone has claimed; I don’t recall that thread). Look at Kingzak’s post count and you can tell, since I believe he was most affected. I lost some myself, mostly from posting warnings (eg ‘stop bumping these threads’) in those locked threads; just not hundreds like some spammers. I knew complaints would pop up, just didn’t know how fast or by whom, but it happened.
In the future, do not create ‘why did I lose posts?’ threads. It is tiring to see every time cleanup occurs and is the result of your own posting. If you see a thread being spammed, a thread about someone who’s banned, one posted by someone who is currently banned, etc etc…don’t post in them if you will be hurt by the post loss. I know its easy ‘post harvesting’ because you can post any spammy response without thinking, or can easily post a ‘thread fails’ response; but if you think a thread is destined to be locked, _it is also likely destined to be deleted_.
Either way, when it happens: don’t complain about it publicly. It only contributes more to the idea that post counts are everything and presses the opinion that they should be hidden.
