    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.

    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.

    I got great enjoyment shouting "WHY THE **** ISN'T THIS GAME BEING PLAYED AT THE BASIN?!>!?!?" to reasonably significant cheers from the sparse crowd
    one day NZ will bring chappell to his knees in a puddle of his own tears and you'll see Phlegm on his belly greedily tasting every delicious tear before watching the hope fade from that old ****s eyes.

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