Who cares about post number one million, it's post No. 1,000,003 that is significant!
Spoiler:
It's the first prime number after one million :D

Someone tell me to go the fuck to sleep.

To drive you nuts: there are 985,612 rows in the posts table in the database. 970,772 is the current count according to the forum. The problem is that there are 21,349‬ posts with a poster ID value of "1" attached to them because of a database FUBAR some years ago and because some user accounts were deleted without deleting the posts. The system appears to be counting only those rows with a valid user ID. 19,586 of those belong to one person.

BUT...the post numbers are valid. This is post 985,612
