This has been a problem, as 1-liners are worthless posts that Don't help, Don't make you sound very intelligent, have no use, and are a cheap way to increase that post count. My suggestion to Doom is to set it so that a post under say, 5 words, doesn't add to your post count. This way people would be forced to make more intelligent posts and contribute better to the community. There might be drawbacks but it would solve the 1-liner problem for a while. Also Don't flame me if this idea has been already thought of, as the forums have grown so vast that you can't check every single topic, every post, etc.
