FWIW, I don't see how useful it is.  I can see some cases where people will 
use it to "attack" someone for hogging the list.  And I can see cases where 
people decide they need to be #1 and will post accordingly.  Can anyone tell 
me the usefulness of it?  I can go to the archives and list by author to see 
what people post the most.  What is the goal?
