I especially agree with the phrase "200% of nothing". It's relevant in this case.

Anyway, a Google image search for 200 somehow didn't turn up many images with 200 on it, so I retrieved this:

Seeing the name Dewdney on a book cover immediately brought to mind this:

Anyone familiar with it? I got the book from a library sale (like most of the interesting/weird books I own) a couple of years ago, and somehow it stuck in my memory.

So you have got to 200 posts.
(achoo)
Isn't this topic spam?

Oh lord. Another mini-mod? I thought they had all been rounded up and rehabilitated. Although, maybe this is part of that capture-tag-release project which lures more mini-mods in from the wild.

Edit - Congratulations to the splash of smoke for maintaining a fragile postcount.

What does this mean?
And what is this mini-mod thing?

May your post count continue to flourish as it does now, like a patch of snapdragons in the sun. In the Sun.

Salmon--that wasn't nice to either Muffin or this topic and you know it.

Muffin--splash of smoke is a reference to Gust of Ice. And by mini-mod, Salmon means someone who (directly or indirectly) gives unwarranted forum behavior advice. Look at how other people respond before you ask whether something is spam or not.

Congratulations on a milestone. It's like cutting down the tallest tree in the forest with a herringbone.

To Pale Flamming Muffin - There was some criticism a few months ago for milestone posting topics below 10 posts. Mini-mods refers to people acting like mods without the power to do anything.

Yay!

Personally, I'll always equate Gust of Icy Smoke (With Water Mixed in Somehow) with Shard of Fire. These monikers get too complex...

what I like is the high number of postings for the low member number. :(

No respect for us lurkers. When I was yer age, we were waiting for the Windows port of Exile III, and we liked it that way! Whippersnappers.

I'd say it's a mild form of spam, but don't take my word for it. Since the recent bout of spam discussions here, I've been changing my mind on an hourly basis. As of right now I'm leaning towards Zeviz's viewpoint. In all likelihood, I'll be violently disagreeing with him tomorrow. Meh.

As for low postcount celebrations: if you disallow these and allow high postcount celebrations, you are attaching value to the meaningless numbers. Allow 'em all or lock 'em all.

EDIT: Rollover! Rollover!
