Second surprise was that so many were mine; in recent months my threads seldom receive more than a dozen posts. Final sentence at the bottom was unplanned.

What I can't figure is why anyone is even interested in the number of posts in the General Forum. It's not a destination forum in the way of Debates or Science, it's just a big empty room where people wander in, look around, maybe say something but more likely not, and wander out again.
