    6251. I considered trolling the newbies thread and telling them counting is a good way to get their 50 posts so they can post in SYW.

    6254. Besides, trolling for newbies seemed a bit crass, even for me.

    6257. Not here, but I considered that for a different forum. But then I figured a new account wouldn't make the forum fresh again, so I just stopped going.
