Sean, Kim is correct that it is not dog/cat hair but rather, pet dander.

Sean, Kim is correct -- it is the dander that causes the allergies, not the hair.

Random query:

Does anyone know WHY anyone would want to "Up their posting count"....I've seen some accusations to that effect in other threads that typically have taken a turn towards squabbling about the miniscule.

Is there some prize to having the highest count or something?

They recommend a diet that creates a calorie deficit to burn fat, with a little guide as to how many calories are required by body weight, and how much of a deficit burns how much weight. Beyond that they suggest following an eating guide based on something called Michi's Ladder. If you took the calorie reduction to an extreme it would become the typical "starvation diet", but eating reasonably doesn't seem to be a problem.

Kim, I have gotten varioius PMs accusing me of posting lots of times just to up my post count. I just ignore them. The previous two somewhat duplcate postings were due to the glitch that is on ehMacLand the past two days, not an attempt to add to my post count.

You are the most prolific poster with way more posts a day than anyone else, so don't let anyone say anything to you ............. since they said the same thing to me many moons ago.

"Is there some prize to having the highest count or something?" Not that I know of ..........

Keep the Faith, my friend. Paix.

No prizes, some people just look upon posting counts as a mark of prestige. Some people may use their posting count to judge how much they've contributed to the forums. Realistically, it's just a number that doesn't really mean anything. Anyone that finds purpose in posting count number would probably never venture into this thread, finding it frivilous posting with no value.

Kim - I think some people just need something to @$*& about so when they can't find anything else they @$&* about "upping posts". Sheesh. Ignore them is my advice.

Hmmm. Sorry - I didn't mean to infer that the accusations were directed at me...Nobody has said anything directly to me - but to others that were getting into bicker territory....How does one even tell who has the most daily posts?

Yeah - that's why I found it confusing - number of posts doesn't measure any value whatsoever in my mind. I think value is provided in many other ways - entertainment, learning, problem solving, camaraderie, friendship support, etc etc...

Hey! Congrats on your 3000th post Jeanne!
And that's not a frivolous post!
