    I'm not exactly sure why I feel this way, but I really don't want to reach the big 1 triple 0! I think it might be something to do with subconscious guilt at spending so much time on the Internet, when I feel like I should be out there living life? Don't know, someting like that!

    Could a mod please erase a big chunk of my posts or something like that?

    And for you smart-asses out there, I'm well aware of the irony that posting this has brought me 1 step closer to where I don't want to be. :p)

    When I first read this, all I could hear was Doc Brown's voice solemnly intoning "Erased from existence"...

    Why not just have the mods change your post count to a negative number? [​IMG]

    How about having the mods delete your account, then you re-register, and start all over again at zero!
    Hey, 1000 posts isn't a bad thing. Heck, look at MY post count! You'd think I spent all my time on here (shhh, don't tell my boss) [​IMG]

    I was almost at 500 posts at one point. Then, due to some software problem, it went down below 400. If you're lucky, perhaps this will happen to you some day.

    There is another forum of which I'm a member that uses the same software as the HTF. The atmosphere there is a bit more loose and crazy than it is here, and a moderator once adjusted a member's post count into the negative hundred thousands.

    It was interesting to read the thread entitled, "I'll never reach zero posts. [​IMG]"

    It wasn't a software problem. It was the deletion of a thread. All the posts in that thread were deleted leading to some people losing some of their post counts. When you post in only one thread your count can drop dramatically.
    Paul,
    At the rate you start new threads I am surprised you have not reached 2000 yet. [​IMG]

    I'm not to worried about getting too high anytime soon [​IMG]
    Lets see... I've been a member since 3rd Quart 1999, and I don't even have 200 posts... so figure 4*3= at least 10 more years before I have 1000 posts... [​IMG]

    Paul, you will probably reach 1000 just from this thread alone.

    Since I am now resolved to never reaching 1K, this will be my last post here at the Home Theater Forum. It's been a pleasure, and I sincerely hope that you all have nice lives. This is Paul signing out, preparing to click the Submit Reply button for the very last time! [​IMG]
