I don't know. On the old forum, I joined it sometime in 2007, and only had about 250 posts. Hal created atheist think tank, which I was a very active member there 'til they banned me for life, and I came back over here. However, when the website was made anew (this one), and it was announced at ATT, I did rejoin wwgha but barely participated 'til my banning at ATT. So, where as what you say could be true for some, I don't think it is for me (in reference to the carry over part of your remark), or i'd have a lot more than 6,200 posts.
