    A: All fifty odd thousand of us combined, obviously! Just noticed that the TB post count has edged over the three million mark. Munji and Bruce have contributed to this well; without them, we'd still be languishing at around the 2,970,000 mark.

    Fixed the grammar for you.

    Not that it makes it true, of course. :p
     
  4. Well I'm no English scholar or anything, but to make it truly proper wouldn't it be: I have it.

    I do works too I think though, as it is, I do (have the biggest post count).

    If someone asks who has the biggest post count, do you say I have?

    :bag:

    No. Because I haven't. :D

    Seriously, it's about verb agreement. The question asks "Who has....?" So the answer is "I have". Or "I haven't."

    If the question was "Do you have....?", then "I do" or "I don't" would be correct.

    And quit chucking our tea off our ships!! :D

    If you read the opening post, you'll see that this was a rhetorical question. :)

    I was commenting on the total posts that make up this community of ours.
     
  10. I don't mean to harp on it, but it is bothering me a little now.

    If somebody asks 'Who has...?', how can you answer 'I haven't'.

    It doesn't make sense, I have not the highest post count? It should be, 'I do not have the highest post count'.

    "I have not the highest post count" is perfectly correct. Try it without the "not" and you'll see why. :)

    It may sound a bit strange to you, but from the point of view of a correctly constructed sentence it's fine.

    Yes, but it does bring up the interesting question of which individual here has the highest post count?

    My guess is still Bruce.

    If my math serves me correctly, that puts you in the 99.7 percentile.

    So, anybody else want to comment on their own individual count whilst completely missing the point about how many we have between us all?
