I find it useful to be able to see a person's Join Date and number of posts. There are so many instances where a game is released and a flurry of posters with only one or two posts will rave about how great the game is.
I like to be able to weed those opinions out in favor of comments from more established members.
I like to see how active a poster has been in the forum, and for how long. if I like a person's comment I may click on the person's profile and read comments they've made on other topics. (For example, if they say they like adventure games, I will see what other adventure games they have commented on...)
So I agree with Teh Ninja...I find it helpful to see that info in posts.
