Yes, but a post is not a pound. Posts have varying mass depending on their ratio of seriosity to truthiness. A thousands posts by Shambles might mass several thousand pounds, for example. When seriosity gets unusually high at the same time as the divisor of truthiness heads toward minimum, the mass of a post rises dramatically, as in the work of the late unlamented Gibson feller.

It's all relative, as my overweight cousin used to say.
