Do you judge bees on the amount of posts they have?

    alpinebride:  I don’t skip them. I used to look out for the different colors for post count and would concentrate on those ones, but that isn’t really possible here.

    The only time I judge is when the topic is a controversial one, and the OP has very few posts. That tells me they’re probably just trolling.

    If I know you by name (and I’m rarely on) you are probably on here too much so yup I do.

    I certainly do! I judge people with 2 posts who come here and start post with a ton of drama.  I also slightly judge people who post like 50 times a day (because I’m jealous that I don’t have so much free time).

    No I don’t judge bees on their (lack of) posts.  If anything, if a bee has a really really high number of posts, I sometimes wonder what they do in their spare time! lol

    Ive been lurking for a couple years and I only really judge bees with a high post count who post snarky comments, it just seems unecessary. Post count has nothing to do with whether I read a thread, though, its all about the title!

    I judge people based on if I recognize their name, and if I do, my impression of them. I pretty much only don’t click on an thread with a title I think is interesting if I don’t like the OP. But in the rare  occasion that I check out a recap, it’s because I recognize the OP so my curiosity is piqued.

    TBH i judge the bees who are constantly at the top of the leader boards. seems like they should have something to do besides posting all day! oh well

    I only judge re: post count if the posts are only their own spam like posts or threads created to cause drama. But other than that no I do not judge because of post count. And I definitely wouldn’t judge someone because of high post count/on a lot, because I am one of those haha.

    Jacqui90:  +1 on not judging high post counts! I usually respect posters with high counts more because they’ve probably been around longer and have a bit more “wisdom” to share. I kind of view it like respecting your elders, haha!

    Sometimes, depending on the title of the thread.

    <div style=”overflow: hidden; color: #000000; background-color: #ffffff; text-align: left; text-decoration: none;”>If they only have 1 or 2 posts and the topic is just off the wall, I most likely won’t respond, I’ll just assume they are trolling.</div>
