I think the Admin should turn off the Post count in the userbit... Why give a user a face, low post = ugly High post = Hot...

Everyone should be equal!

Edit: + Also with postcount active, people tend to postwhore. (Useless posts just to increase postcount)

I mean lets face it, the majority of their 100 first posts ARE dumb posts.

"Oh hey, interview shoes, my brother recommends kenneth cole loafers"

The rest of the site could have been redesigned, and they could have left the interface for Supertalk pretty much intact, and everything would probably have been hunky dory. Instead, they now have Super-Vista. Congratulations.

The ******* dots are the real problem. I can't stand the ******* dots.

What do you think "wankers" is in Japanese, Red? Surely not the ubiquitous "baka?"

^Makes sense. Though, my "knowing looks" and hints of dry humor tend to fall flat and I get the "WTF?" look really easily. Maybe I'm just not doing it right.

I always thought that "baka" was a term too often used. One thing that is fun about English is that put-downs, profanity, and overall angry terminology is much more colorful. Depending on context, "baka" seems to mean everything from fool to dumbass to asshole to fuckwad.

+1. It can get frustrating, though, when 1/3 of the threads on a given page are about the same thing.
"Boat shoes... OK?"
"Boat shoes are back"
"Mag says boat shoes passe"
"WHERE CAN I GET BOAT SHOES ONLINE??!"
"Are Band of Outsiders boat shoes a good value?"
"Good alternatives to BoO boat shoes"
"Boat shoes with jeans. What are you rocking?"
"+++Official boat shoe alert thread+++"
