I've asked someone to check if there really is a problem with the post count sync with Jam Zone and should have an answer for you all shortly.
I tend to just hit the like button to finish off a thread rather than post a thank you, although I have been known to go totally off topic sometimes for the sake of humour rather than boosting post count (not that I need to of course as I already have all the 'post count' badges). :-)

mishi, I believe you night have misunderstood my comment & I apologize if it was not clear or seemed accusatory towards you. It wasn't.
My comment was in regard primarily to posts made in the General device & software support forums, lesser so in the developer areas. Over v the past six months there has been a plethora of registered developer accounts in these forums who register and proceed to bloat their post count with meaningless threads/posts and in turn their friends like each post and multiple friends login and do the same.
These vary from simple "thank you" posts and other somewhat meaningless off topic posts which on the surface appear harmless until the likes history is tracked. And then it appears clear.
In that time period I've seen dozens of accounts warned, hundreds of posts & threads closed or deleted and users banned.
My point was and is this: Please be wise & judicious with the likes and take care not to appear to bloat one's post count just for the sake of a prize or water bottle.
If you need further clarification I'd be glad to explain in PM.
Trust me when I say the developers in this forum are a fine lot who contribute greatly to the BlackBerry ecosystem and to other developers. Trust me also that there are always those few who desire to take advantage of the system. It is only the latter group which my original comments above refer.
Thank you for the clarification @JSanders. Now it is much clearer to me. I just keep track of the Developer Support Forums so I have no idea what is going on in the General Support area.
Since you are a Resident Expert you have more experience what was and is going on in the forums and have a better view what others are doing, but I still think you have posted this comment in the wrong topic. Perhaps you could open another topic for this to let others developers know about this and that BlackBerry is aware of this and will act on those developers who use the forums just to get a free t-shirt.
