I'm sure an adm will (or should) chime in but it seems I've seen post counts go down when a thread is removed or suspended. I'm sure there are other reasons. It's a good thing post counts don't decrement when people disagree with what I post. Otherwise, I'd have a negative post count.

Because every time you post on City-Data, they subtract one here.
It is all about balance.

I'm shooting to break 1,000 so be prepared for some meaningless chatter. Once I hit the goal I get a gold coin which allows me to reach Level 2 and attempt to slay the dragon.

Meaningless chatter? Not ever!

Every post increases the post count by 1. If a post is subsequently deleted, the post count is reduced by 1. When that happens, the member is always notified at the time of deletion.

You may be thinking of another forum. Your post count has not yet reached 2600 on E-R Forum.

I think that for every minute you spending thinking about your post count, your posts go down by about 150.

Honestly I seldom or never even think about my post count. I guess it is a little high, but that is probably because of all the cool topics people come up with on this board. I mean REALLY. How can one not chime in about paying off mortgages, or cutting the cord, where the market is going, or blowing that dough?

This is the most fascinating message board I have ever participated in. Not only that, it's about the only website I know of where so many genuinely brilliant people participate and throw interesting ideas back and forth like they do here. And all for free.
