I traced it to an issue with Technorati - I've pulled their code for now, since they seem to think The W and The 7 are the same board anyway (which they are, but they aren't) and their stats for us are all mugged up anyway. We should be back to peppy posting when you start a new thread, so please don't hit that button five times thinking it'll make it go faster. ;-)
Redsoxnation finally ended everyone's...okay, my speculation as to what the rank change would be when he reached 5,000 posts. And he is listed as "Final Rank". Which would seem so nice and, well, final. But wait!
