Very, very true. I thought about that when I was posting and I just figured, eh...I'll let someone else bring it up!
In all seriously, though, there are a few here and there that registered a few years ago and then BAM they have 2k posts overnight.
And then again...sometimes it is harder to tell apart a spammer from a contributor. There are some people in the Linux Forum who have a decent post count that I've never even heard of before! So if they started posting more in the Open Forum or other areas, I would be like WTF who's this guy.
Again, its not really all that big of a deal. Just one of those little things.
