56. Thanks Spacebuddy, but at the same time
many people can read, get something from it, but do not post because they see someone else has done so, or whatever.... We shouldn't necessarily judge importance (or even readership) by the number of posted replies. But since it is natural for all of us to do so, and because it changes order of posts, kicks are still welcome! : )

I mean, for example cookbooks and sex will always be "popular" because eating is something everyone has in common, and sex is something most adults have in common.... Does that mean fast food and seamy or steamy sex is more important than quantum physics? OK, bad examples. Maybe you can think of a better one? ; )

Maybe we should measure posts more by not just the number of people affected, but by the intensity of endorsement, like a super-double-kick giving an automatic second kick 15 minutes later.... (In addition to nomination for greatest) Some of the chats that can post high numbers may not have much lasting impact....
