well, if GT is doing that ranking and stats thingy then I think it's relevant. If not, bakit hindi common rank or 'Girltalker' na lang ang displayed ranks ng each of the members dito.
The thing is, people are by nature, achiever. One will try to be active just to be a Senior GT or higher. Tapos na-achieve mo nga, only to be taken away dahil lang nag-delete ng posts??
I think from a computing standpoint mali yata ang formula ang gamit ng GT. They are not really accounting true historical counts ng postings - if this is where they base rankings. Storing a simple counter is not much of an overhead and very minimal, if none, sa impediment ng performance ng GT site.
