I'm just catching up after being away from computers for a few days, and I came across the 10,000 thread.

I'm hesitant to say anything because of my "official" association with TMF. Please be assured that the forthcoming comments do not represent the position of The Motley Fool, Inc. For all I know they could be contrary to official company policy and get me fired. My opinion is strictly my own.

I don't care much for posts for the sole purpose of upping the counter. Among my reasons are the fact that, although TMF is free to the user, bandwidth and storage space are not free. (Disclosure: I'm not a TMF stockholder, but I hope to be one day.)

The main reason for my distaste lies elsewhere. I find it a drag to have to page through the "numbers" posts to get to the many interesting threads that appear on this board.

Quite literally, just my 2 cents.
