I'm all for not counting posts in General Chat for the count. I can understand some people are very social beings, and the general is a great place for them to chat it up, thus I'm quite happy for those people, but there is no need for any of those posts to count towards their "total". This is a webmaster forum, posts about webmaster related content are what counts to me.
And the off topic
I'd be interested in a private proxy area Mr.Bill. A place for people who are primarily focused on web proxies to discuss things, I think, could be quite beneficial. I've got some big plans for the coming months, and once I get things ironed out and rolling, I 'd love to discuss them with serious proxy admins, as opposed to the general population of 'fly by night so-called' proxy admins.
