    It's a general rule of thumb for degree of spamming. Generally anything over 10 is considered notably high (as in "active poster", given a long enough time period... It is not unusual, however, for the top 10% or so to be in the 10-20 range The 20-30 mark is more case by case. 50 something is... out of the ordinary.

    I didn't triple check, but of all the net high-volume posters, Jennifer is at the tail end of the curve, sitting just above 20. You sit at 16. From what I could see, it's very notable.

    ^ You do talk bullshit. Some people can post both quality and quantity. Others on the other hand....

    Only someone with no powers of discrimination whatsoever, would categorize someone as a troll based on number of posts.

    Personally I cringe when I run into a thread where folks are discussing someone "behind their back" rather than addressing him to his face.

    It reminds me of that old seventh grade game of "whispering" in front of someone as a way to let them know they don't belong.

    We all know the other is listening and observing his attempted exclusion. When we don't address others face-to-face it starts to feel passive-aggressive to me.

    So. My first thought upon finding this thread was, "What's the purpose of this thread?" Because sometimes things are not what they seem at first glance.

    What looks like a simple question - "Is Jack good at typing people?" can become an opportunity to publicly excoriate him.

    I like the company of people who have the courage to take up personal issues face-to-face. Like in PM. It leaves out the "ganging up" factor and indicates that one can stand on their own opinion without backup. It's simply a little "cleaner" communication.

    As an INFP, if someone started a thread called, "Is Anja a phony?" I would be shocked and sense that someone was attempting to humiliate me. I'd question both their independent courage and their worthiness of my companionship.

    Hee. How grandious does that sound? But truth, nonetheless.

    It's a fine line we tread here with our good sport correspondent, Jack.

    Yeah, well, that too. Have to admit.

    But my dang INFP kicks in and I start thinking about people's feelings.

    I think the post count is somewhat irrelevant. If you have a skill for getting something "constructive" in a line or two you can rack up the post counts pretty quick without necessarily trolling. I think we should have a multiplying factor based on word count per post*cough* bluewing *cough*

    No, Aiman! No!

    I'll be in the doghouse for sure.

    I don't think my eyes or brain have ever been challenged to the extent that it has when reading one of his posts. I'm actually kind of glad, its like a critical reading prep test. I gained some serious speed reading skills from that. Your's do NOT compare.
