If you get bad statistics on a post you started, there is no need to go on suffering indefinitely. You can improve the 'no replies' by posting a reply to yourself. You can improve the 'Views' by looking at your own posts ad nauseum. Forums generally suffer from this anomaly. I wish I could have improved my marks at school by marking myself this way. I expect no replies to these remarks. I just want the great-ignored to feel happier.
