Please avoid empty one-line posts. We love it when people have something to contribute to the conversation beyond "I agree" or "yes". One or two-word posts -- except where it's a poll of people's opinions, or a game-type thread like The Vending Machine or Rate my Avie -- don't add much.
If you're eager to build up your post-count, welcome our new members. If you just want to have an off-topic chat with a member you've gotten to know, send them a PM, email, take it to your blog. Other people shouldn't have to wade through your private conversation.
