Using the "dick level" guide in the OP, one can evaluate the content of the thread.
For example, the "Happy Independence Day" thread is a very positive level one thread.
On the other hand, the "AOC-TOTAL FAKE" thread drops quickly to level three and then all the way to a five. It has over 500 hits and is still running. It's a masterpiece of trolling, only surpassed by "Why Jussie Smollet is important" for total hits in recent postings.
