I think it would totally depend on how the system is programmed. It is obviously programmed to add to the post count but is it also programmed to deduct from the count. Only one of the developers can really answer that. I would be very curious to know.

I can say with certainty that the old politics posts are there because Tal was quite relieved that his post count didn't go down.. lol

The Politics board goes way back to July 24, 2007. I was only on there a rather short time. It is all there as far as I can tell.

I have had a lot of posts deleted though and doubt if they count.

Yes but as you say they were not deleted. Since he keeps track of his post count maybe he will know. He must surely have had some deleted.

I confess to being addicted to Youtube.
I just find it more entertaining than the TV programs.
I also read about 5 books a week from the library, play golf every other day, walk at least 4 miles every day, and drink a little bit to much cheap red wine!

I have had various posts deleted when they address a post that crossed the line in some respect and that whole branch of the thread would have been removed.

From my experience it seemed that the post count did not go down when these were removed. But I could be wrong about that.

Impressive.

I want to know which books are your favorites.

And which wine is your favorite.

Golf? Meh.

My guess would be that you are right.
