    its not a strange number at all

    that is the highest 32 bit signed number you can get.

    the only thing that is odd is why it is a signed number as you can't get a negative post count.

    if it was unsigned it would be 4,294,967,296

    EDIT

    and just for info.

    if it was running on 64bit operating system you could get a maximum post count of

    9.223372037 x10^18 for a signed number

    and

    1.844674407 x10^19 for an unsigned number
