It's a fairly common practice on the internet, I've found, especially with younger posters: equating quantity with quality. It's not the number of posts that you make that's important, but what you convey in your posts. It's especially irritating when posters bump every single existing thread on the first page or create a new thread for every single solitary stray thought which pops into their brain or make multiple posts just to say "I don't know" or "I liked it" or "Sounds cool. Can't wait". Having over 1000 posts doesn't make you royalty, especially when there's not a drop of substance in any of them. I know I'm not one to talk because I built up a high post count quickly (mainly since I'm generally a talker), but I at least try to put something substantial in everything I post and I avoid posting when I have nothing to say or can't add anything factual or worthwhile to a discussion. But no, making a lot of posts doesn't make you a demigod, it just means you make a lot of posts.
