Hi guys. I just wanted to comment on these 'reach 1000 posts' threads that are springing up all over the place now. Why do we come to Lit-Net? We come here to read about... literature! (For the most part), post our own writings, and read and critique the works of both our fellow writers on the forums, and to read and analyze the works of classic authors and poets.
How much more satisfying would if be if you went and posted 500 messages in the 'Short Story' section, seiving out the good works, helping others out with their stories (I see so many with very few or no comments, it's a discouragement to posting in there), or if you went to the philosophy forum and joined in a debate you feel passionate about?
Why are your posts that are in reply to 'What is your favourite color' considered valid? Why are you proud of those posts?
I think General Chat and the games forum both have their place, to relax, chill out and just chat. But don't post just for the sake of posting...
(I'm terribly sorry if this is innapropriate.)
