    Should posts in Off Topic be discounted from statistical discussions?

    Posts in the TF already get discounted and the quality of OT is arguably worse. So should these posts be removed, or have an asterisk next to them?

    It's an important issue, you must admit

    The stats show the board has been infested with poor quality posters, meaning the overall standard is poorer. The only reason the board has a somewhat respectable good post to bad post ratio is because of feasting on easy topics in comfortable conditions.

    I vote yes.

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    All post of less than 250 characters should be disregarded, and indeed deleted immediately and their makers infracted - conversational skills need to be enhanced

    Any posts consisting only of smilies should subtract from your post count.

    Instead of post count, we should have a word count. It would really hammer home how much of our lives we've wasted here.
