    Philosophers have high post-count.

    Correlation between delusion and post-count?

    Mayhaps....
    Your logic is delusional.

    Yes, exactly! The dynamic has entirely to do with social integration. This applies to both the board, to any small groups of "cliques" (I use this loosely here, not in a negative way) and even on topics.

    This becomes especially true when the topics can be more involved - certain groups of individuals often have past history that they can reference, or just have a common point of reference, and that naturally invites "caution" on the part of a new poster.

    For some, but such a delay is...I don't know, what's the point of posting if you're only posting what you think others want to hear? To be liked? LOL.

    Yeah see, noone here has my past history and they nevertheless socially integrated me, like they moved my blog in an ultimately clever plan to the NF boards.

    Thats modern dictatorship. Assimilation from within

    Who says I was referring to you personally. They do say defensiveness arises from insecurity...

    And no, please do not phone me. There's no point if you don't believe in what's contrary to your thinking. It'll be a waste of time.

    Also, people with higher post counts are "expected" to have a higher deciding value in a thread, than someone completely new simply because he has an established identity, which's value is inturn put on the poker table for gambling in each post he makes. A new poster on the other hand has no "expectations" of his to gamble on.
    I agree with the first, not sure about the second part about gambling identities in every post. Unless you're pretending to be somebody you're not that thought shouldn't ever come up. Unless you're saying you're a pretender?

    Pretty much, yeah. That's how communities work in general.

    Damn... you aren't all fooled into thinking that I'm the 3rd smartest person here by my amazing postcount?



    Really- newer posters sometimes DO look up to older members- like when I was new Sub and Jennifer- they offer social cues as to how things go on the site and what can fly and what can't. It's like having an older sibling here or something

    Higher postcount doesn't mean that a person knows more about everything, but you can probably safely assume that someone with a higher post count has a better understanding of the forum dynamics than someone who is newer.

    Keep rackin' em up, why don't you. You were responding to my post and taking a somewhat contrary position, and you know it. Back to the topic of knowledge, let me rephrase. Person A has long since considered everything Person B proposes along with statements such as "Have you considered this?" Person A responds with "Yes, I have, and it's a-no-good." But Person B can't seem to believe it's possible. Too bad for Person B.
