Bug Post counts

    I'm curious why the number of posts listed in a member's icon, sometimes doesn't match up with the number of posts shown when you bring up that list. (e.g. in https://www.physicsforums.com/threads/hi-how-are-you.883359/#post-5553817 Bipolar Demon has post count 4. ) Do I misunderstand what the post count is ? Is the post count a "thread count"?

    Posts in some forums, like General Discussion and New Member Introductions (I think the whole "PF Lounge" forum group), don't count for the post counter.
