Your idea is an interesting one JR (very telling in many ways actually *S*) but it's also very unsound logically. That this web site is "geared in a direction towards individuality" is a bit like saying Tuesday comes after Monday. As for the "counting" business well...I'm confused. This Web Site already "counts" the number of "hits" a post gets....so that can't be what you're referring to. If what you did mean was that the number of RESPONSES would be counted, well, I suppose I need to point out that just because someone doesn't post a response...

....doesn't mean the original post wasn't interesting.

One could just as easily assume that a HIT followed by the lack of a written response was do to inability on the part of the reader!

Either way you look at it, any statistics compiled would most definetely not be valid for a scientifically sound conclusion and therefore nothing more than mere...

.... assumption.
