Can someone explain a "drive by post"?

Since I am new here I am guessing it is just padding the post count? I noticed it on the majority of locked posts.

Technically this would be a "drive by?"

And, technically, my post above is a drive-by post.

BAD MODERATOR!

Ahhh but Mike you just provided a wonderful working example of what not to do...What better way to teach than with examples?

And someone really needs to invent a sarcasm font for moments like this.

Maybe 'drive by posts' come from 'drive by news people'. Rush knows lots of them..
