    You make a very good point. Frankly, I'm rather surprised that more members haven't weighed in on this issue. Personally, I started feeling more than a little bit uneasy when I noticed a few months ago that I had broken into the ranks of the Top 100 posters. I knew right then that it was time for me to back off the keyboard. As MADDOG10 says, it's about quality, not quantity.

      Did not vote

      Nothing hard about being a member. I just come and post when I feel like it, do my research with the tools available.
      I do not pay attention to how many post I make or what rank I am.
      I do look at the views in my blog and forum postings I start . Just to see if it is worth my time to blog or post. No interest no post.
      No replies on forum postings. no post.
      S.C. weekly I will not do any more.

                  I Agree!

                   

                  I guess I shouldn't agree with this comment, because I am very long-winded sometimes, but often my one post is equal to 10 or 20 posts of others. I simply don't think about it. Not being a "paying" member, I have nothing to complain about. However, if I were paying for membership here, I might think otherwise. However, to answer the poll, there is nothing hard about LP at all. To me the internet is supposed to be fun.  I go online for many reasons and find the internet to be a giant library with all sorts of interesting information right at your fingertips. I go to boards for information or to be entertained. Sometimes it's a source of comfort for me in difficult times, especially when I meet nice people with whom I share my feelings. If it was "hard" I wouldn't bother.

                  Edit:  I just read the question a second time. What's a "position" here? I thought Todd had the only position because he owns the site.  I guess I do have an answer. The position I find to be the hardest is sitting on my butt for so long, especially after it falls asleep.

                      Personally, I really don't even know how many posts it takes to get into the top poster position LOL. I just post when feel like it and have time.

                        I truly don't understand the big deal about being a top 100, 50, 25 or whatever poster. How and why did this become a goal to attain? Personally, I think Todd should drop the top poster thing all together. Then the quality level may raise a notch or two.

                        Without the (strange) goal of Top Poster some people may actually start focusing on something......like....oh, I don't know....maybe....the lottery and ways to beat it?

                        Just a thought,

                        Bryan  :)

                            let me second your thoughts. i don't care about rankings i just care about the comradery and beating the lottery.

                              Sometimes, Orangeman, life's a mysterious place.  Evidently it DOES matter to some, though the issue had never come up in my mind before. 

                              I find the rankings on the posts to be a semi-(maybe 2/3) useful means of establishing at a glance whether the member is a newcomer, or an old-timer I haven't noticed before.  But a close look at the number of posts would tell it almost as easily.  The badge and ranking are just larger and don't require a second glance.

                              But it's harmless, so far as I  can tell.  If it matters to someone, why knock it?
