Can I contribute to that then when I reach 1000 posts?
Perhaps I'll examine each and every post at that point and see what posts were spam, near spam or just genius. Even I admit there's a decline in post quality in recent times. This whole thread just seems a pointless post building exercise. I mean, how useful is it to know that we hit 30k posts recently? I'll tell you how useful it is:
Not. At. All.
So please, let's discontinue reports of 'Congratulation everyone, we've made 35,000 posts! Let it continue' or whatever.
Oh yes, and I daresay this post will be viewed upon as a 'spam' post. However, if so it's point will be missed entirely. In case you haven't guessed, it is to point out how often some people just seem to post and post and post, so they can say 'Look, I've got 1000 posts!'. To the next person seriously suggesting it (I was kidding in my opening section of this post, I have no intention of marking a pointless occasion), I say this:
I do assume there are other people who don't want to know about such a topic either, but I got fed up of it and decided to make the post on grounds of ensuring it was known that is only a minority who care about post levels.
