For a while tonight I couldn't see anyone's post count, high or low. It was wonderful.

I hoped it might be a new feature. or non-feature.

11. I've come to believe there are "visitors" shall we call them who have been living among us for

 

many thousands of posts, studying the ways of DU
It is the posters with the highest counts who make
me the most nervous.

Just the other day I was accused of being a troll
so my midling post count didn't help at all. I worked
hard to get those first 1000, but it's futile.

3. I never see the posts counts

 

on my cell. Only when I log in on my laptop, and that is not very often.

8. Same here. And I never notice monikers either.

It's just me and the posters words.

Amazing how things are without post counts and avatars, isn't it?

16. It's how I DU.

However, I've still managed to make a mess of things recently.

It's still possible to offend people even when you're not judging them on such things as post count, and only using content.

People can still become nasty. Consider this your warning.

5. For a short time, DUers without a star were locked out.

Like I said, it was only for a few minutes.

10. Actually, even with a star i had troubles loggin in

 

For a few seconds. Most likely due to the high traffic. I doubt they banned non star members specifically.

12. A window appeared that said otherwise.

When the traffic gets too heavy, it's either that or the servers go down.

A lot of limits were imposed before that happened.

19. since my laptop died I can only DU with my blackberry & that's the norm for me, also only OP titles

... and numbers of replies in the forum list. No usernames, views or recs, just titles. Makes for an interesting experience, guessing by OP title alone.
