    Not sure what the issue is. Let them post. There's only a couple forums where the post count goes towards the 250 posts.

    What does it matter how many new posts to topics there are.

    I would close this thread is I could. That is the origional premis of the tread.
    I am talking about asking a question and getting it answered. Purpose of the threat has been fulfilled. Kill it.
    Not all threads are that cut and dried. The ones that are should be put to rest.
    Then there are the threads that you wished that you could take back. Too late, they live forever.
    Live, Love, Laugh

    Oh man, you have my sympathies. You're a long-time poster and frequent contributor. Have you been looking through each forum area each time you logged on. Or, did you use the Recent Posts menubar item? If the former...ouch

    i usually just go trough the sections scanning topics. today is the first day i used that button. If I'm on here is cause i have some free time... so no harm done in scanning around, but it is not efficient at all.
