Including this post, I have made 13 707 posts on this forum. Compared to those threads, that's a bit, I guess.

Your own postcount, or the thread history? I can answer the first: you have 12 903 posts total.

I'm pretty sure I'm not even close to that even if you count all of my posts across the entire internet.

Yeah, taking a quick glance over my other usual haunts from way back, I think my internet total is ballpark 30 000 posts or so.

Even after counting emails, I'm still not close! For me that probably only adds between 5K to 10K. About halfway...

Maybe if I count chat windows and the like... Probably not even then.

Making one post every 10 seconds (the maximum possible posting rate for a nonmoderator), with 65000 posts to go... that's 650 000 seconds, AKA 11 000 minutes, AKA 180 hours, AKA 7.5 days.

That... is a lot of posts. Think you can keep that posting rate up for a full week without sleep?

Literally doing nothing but that for all your waking hours with a more realistic posting rate of 20-30 seconds would take a month.

Neither, my company is just insanely "generous" and gave us no limits to the amount of vacation we can take (as long as they approve of it).

And without getting banned?

The search finds 921 posts for me.
Which exactly matches my post count, despite having two posts here. Let's see what happens after this post.

Edit: It doesn't find this post.
