I disagree. There is no such thing as a free lunch. There is always a cost, and usually many. In this case, the opportunity cost of making a post about ENTP inflation meant foregoing a post about deductive logic or zoology. In your case, the cost of reading my post meant foregoing another post that could have been read in the same time. So long as there are decisions made within spacetime there are costs. When a historian decides to emphasize one particular theme in the text, he foregoes another theme. He may try to emhpasize all themes, but then no theme in particular is emphasized above the rest, which defeats his goal to begin with. The point is there is always a cost, both to allocation of material resources, intellectual resources, and so forth, primarily because time itself is scarce, which means that pursuing one course of action necessarily excludes others at some point. Hence, economic principles do apply. Thus, your statement doesn't hold.
Yes, but there's not a scarcity of time the way there's a scarcity of resources. So I guess it's like the market would be if people had a heck of a lot more money than they do.
Sigh. Why is it that time is so easy to come by, but money is almost impossible to get? I guess it's because no one considers my time valuable enough to trade me anything for it.
Your argument assumes one thing which is also the weak point of it in addition to the reason it doesn't hold. One assumption is that ENTPs want to garner attention.
ENTPs don't necessarily like being in a limelight. They will if needed, but it's not preferred as we are only slightly extraverted and at times retreat back into their shells. So long-term exposure isn't something enjoyed.
Having said that, the reason your argument doesn't hold is that it assumes ENTPs want their stock to rise. ENTPs choose to play on their terms. As they often play devil's advocate, it's anyone's guess which way they might want their 'stock' to go...or if they want to 'maintain' it at all!

Attention whore. You just want more INTJ threads that you can leave some condescending remark in, don't you?
As evidenced by my minimal amount of posts in ENTP-related threads, I personally believe that this slight increase in ENTP thread demand will decrease. Price gouging, however, may be an overstatement of the phenomenon.
On the other hand, does the INTJ market have any chance for growth? While you have established that the market has a constant base, can it attain true growth beyond this? As shown through past experience, the INTJ community only becomes less generalized and significantly harder to enter. While they threads may be slowly getting more enriched with more content, further investors will find difficulty to keep up.
Have you considered how lucrative the supply of INTP threads may be?
If a deaf INFP falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?
