I noticed that the posting guidelines
suggest looking at posts with 10 - 20 comments as examples of posts that spark a decent amount of discussion. These numbers seem out of date to me. Maybe they should be changed to 40 - 50 comments?

These days we seem to have at least a couple posts a day that top 100 comments, and posts that only receive 10 - 20 I would say are actually less indicative of what to do to get a lot of discussion going. What constitutes a good amount of comments anyway?
Please note that I don't believe that more comments necessarily equals a better post, or that a post with a low number of comments is a failure. Just noticed this and figured I'd throw it out there.
