    Post count probably does correlate positively with knowledge on MBTI, but a lot of new posters seem to come equipped with some MBTI knowledge.

    Really? Post counts and join dates are status markers on forums. IRL, you'd have age, race, sex, or other socioeconomic markers. People definitely use their post counts and join dates to discount n00bs

    When you say right you mean...? An older poster may understand more forum context than a new poster. Any new person typically has to "prove" themselves. I think that time is collapsed on forums and it can happen pretty quickly.
    Relationships have normal ebbs and flows. They do not automatically get better and better when the participants learn more and more about each other. Instead, the participants have to work through the tensions of the relationship (the dialectic) while they learn and group themselves and a parties in a relationships. At times the relationships is very open and sharing. Other time, one or both parties to the relationship need their space, or have other concerns, and the relationship is less open. The theory posits that these cycles occur throughout the life of the relationship as the persons try to balance their needs for privacy and open relationship.

    This is the reverse of his question, though. He asked if the n00bs act deferentially towards the longstanding, 5000+ post count members...not if the high post count-ers treat the n00bs badly.

    There is obviously a recognition and acceptance factor.

    Who would know just how [fashionable] CC really is after reading a couple of posts.

    Or you just might think Jack Flak is a social butterfly that spreads his happiness to anyone he encounters.

    It takes time to get to know people, in the absence of that we make quick judgments, heuristics if you will. Post counts are just one handy form.

    They may . . . or they may not. Quantity v. quality. I take post count as an indication the person likes to post a lot. By itself it tells me little other than that. Some people (self-included) post a lot of fluff/non-serious stuff.
