Why do the forums hide the post count?

I was looking at the post counting code, and for some reason the post counting code deliberately hides the post count. Code:
						{% if post.user.forum_profile.post_count > 1000 %}
							{% trans "1000+ posts" %}
						{% elif post.user.forum_profile.post_count > 500 %}
							{% trans "500+ posts" %}
						{% elif post.user.forum_profile.post_count > 100 %}
							{% trans "100+ posts" %}
						{% elif post.user.forum_profile.post_count == 1 %}
							{% trans "1 post" %} 
						{% else %}
							{{ post.user.forum_profile.post_count }} {% trans " posts" %}
Also, mods CAN see the exact post count. The below is what users look like to mods:

If the person in the image below had more than 100 posts, then it would show the exact count in the yellow box.

It's so that newer Scratchers aren't alienated when they see experienced users with enormous amounts of posts.

As well as to limit the amount of competition in forum posts (“HA I HAVE 10,000 POSTS NOW”). This was a big deal a while ago.

To encourage quality over quantity I guess

To educate people over-addicted to big numbers. Though I still see people who posts a lot of … posts just to get a 1000+

Posts removed by mods should count as -5 IMO (limit to 0 or positive score ofc)
