No other purpose then on that date and time, that is what happened in the world. I just saw an empty forum and thought i'd put something History related in it. In the other site forums i go too i'm used to my posts not even counting. Most don't in political forums if they have one? Post count don't mean much to me for that reason. Where i got the link to this site they had just shut down the political forum. I had over three thousand i'm sure but only register six hundred by the site counter.
