So glad I'm done eating. I'm reminded of the inside of a shower stall drain.

What's it like for Introductions, though?

And who's tops overall?

We need to do something about that King Termite guy...

Wow, the middle of the pack has posted more in one week than I have in one year. Mind boggling???

And I thought I was an active participant.

And you find you're just another slacker. You must be crushed.

I'm slow, botto, so I'll bite. Who gives a flying bleep about what, exactly?

Apparently, there are sites that keep track of traffic. Presumably, there is a market for this stuff .. I can think of a certain transaction involving BF.net a while ago. I'll bet the buyers were interested in site traffic; you know, how good is the investment?

Now that I think about it, I shouldn't surprised. Similar sites keep track of porn site traffic. Those have way more information. The presumption there, like in this case, is that there is a market. I know there was a rhetorical tinge to your question, but I'm slow by design *shrug*

Or are we miffed that we are on the list? Because I know I need to get my post count up for this here forum so I can podium. I'd rather podium in Foo.

Looks like you need to dumb it down a bit Frank.

Well, I'm not sure how to take that.
108 posts? Really? Is that too much or too little?
Does it mean I talk too much? Does it mean I'll get carpal tunnel syndrome?
What does it have to do with SRAM?
This thread brings up more questions than answers. Is that what it was meant to do?

it means you are a rookie, a light weight and possibly, unlike me, have a real life.

It's Foo. Who knows where it will go?

As for the SRAM angle. I typed "SRAM Red group info" into Google, and on the third or fourth "o," I found said page with the site tracking information .. and here we are. Frankly, a part of me wanted to be top 10.

But I'm not sure what that would say .. so maybe you are right about the intent of the thread .. what is the meaning of .. top 10 participation on Foo?
