Average posts per day, as at Dec 16, 2012 (Sun): 1.62

Member since April 3, 2006. Total posts, including this one, 3,970.

I take some pride in getting where I got in terms "reputation" with that average post count.

On a more serious note, no, please don't make post counts any more "public" than they need to be. As TheFluff said, we really don't need another number to judge the "quality" of membership. Let's return the focus to where it always should have been, the content of one's post in any given discussion.
