I looked at the master fie in the database, and your Foo post count is 6x10นบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบบ

What this means is that your posting in Foo is supporting the structure of the Universe on the quantum level and provides the anchor our reality rests on.

I seriously doubt that you yourself even know what this means.

Surely any attempt to reveal your true post count would result in an arithmetic exception and panic the BF server.

I fear your foo post count is greater than mine Pcad. This should alarm you.

I stole the secret formula when I was a mod. (yada, yada, warden)

Foo post count = (your total post count * pie) + one delicious bass

Note for you math wizards, pie <> Pi

how about adding "Worthless posts:" under the "Posts" line?

Actually, it's a number that cannot be comprehended by ANYONE, strictly technically speaking.
