We have a member on this forum who has over 80,000 posts. They are part of our malware removal team and they (along with many other members of that team) do a fantastic job helping people deal with malware problems. I can assure you that the overwhelming majority of those 80,000 posts are specifically related to technical matters.
You said in your original post that you did not wish provoke, but you then go on to accuse people with a high post count of being hyper-eccentric and unhealthy. Personally I do not see how that statement could do anything other than provoke.

Via your "curiosity" and reason for posting this thread, you do care or are at least interested, and you are now contradicting yourself
High number of posts ? I could not care less.
Why don't you ask them? I'm sure they all have their own answers.
Could anybody give me a logical explanation how these people spend so much time plonking away at their keyboards dedicating their entire lives to posting irrelevant comments on Forums ? Because I cannot comprehend such behavior. Loneliness ? Perhaps.

To achieve 50,000 posts in 5 years is 10,000 posts per year or 200 posts per week - 30 posts per day ! Mostly on chat subjects. The guy must sit at his keyboard like some Zombie, plonking away making irrelevant posts to his beloved Forum all day long. For anybody who leads a normal life, this is both hyper-eccentric, unhealthy and practically impossible.

Knowledgeable people in the technical and scientific stream do not have lifestyles which allow them time to punch the keyboard every day on Forum matters, although they do take a valuable part when they can.

It is obvious that 85-90% of Forum punters are not specialists and either seek technical help or are simply compulsive chatters. Many of these punters have an obsession to achieve a monumental number of posts. either for personal satisfaction purposes or to achieve a misconceived status of veteran level of respectability by the erroneous conception of "The biggest posters are the most knowledgeable Guru`s".

I frequent this & a few other (non-computer related) forums on a daily basis, about 3-4 hours/day in total. As the primary care giver for an elderly parent it provides me a pleasant/relaxing diversion. If I learn something/help someone along the way, so much the better.

In conclusion this statement makes no sense, post count does not say anything about how knowledgeable someone is.
"The biggest posters are the most knowledgeable Guru`s".
"Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen."
