Because a troll and a sock are two different things...

Troll: A post/poster that is trying to bait an emotional response.

Sock: An alternate ego/identity that one often uses to troll or ask questions they don't want associated with their primary identity.

As in when turtlepi1 doesn't want to sully her reputation attacking Canadians she uses her sock Derrek to go trolling.

One thing that happened when they got rid of the post count is a great number of stupid posts stopped happening....people that posted on every thread about everything and then bragged about how high their post count had gotten ceased their incessant prattle.

Post counts are stupid.

If they still had them my vote would be RR for highest post count...he maynot post alot but he's consistant Laughing

why not bring them back? although i do find it a bit annoying when someone starts a thread talking about the post count.
