Post whoring

Is it just me, or are there a LOT of people who somehow shoot up their post counts in like, a month? I consider myself pretty involved in a lot of conversations on kirupa, but I’ve seen people that join after me, and somehow have 1000 posts about a month after they join. Are there even that many topics? I know there are some hardcore spam threads(coughkteamnonaffiliatedcultcough), but even those have some funny and constructive stuff in them. Strange times.
