I've never felt that either the post count or the title had a positive effect all in all.
Particularly, I don't like the hierarchic titles; there's no direct relation between the number of posts and the merit of the person. It only gives more merit to spammers and flooders.

In my opinion, there should be no such titles, and the post count should not show up on each post but should be hidden in the profile page, so that one can still know a bit better who he's speaking to, but it won't be as much a factor of pointless pride.

PS: To say the truth, I'm subject to such pride, but it's so stupid.
