What's with all these new members?

Many are just spammers. Why not just remove them. Who knows what kind of garbage you might get by going to their sites?

We're actually in pretty good shape here, I believe. You ain't seen REAL spam! On the
Burning Man forum, they get organized spam attacks where an automated program
plants narsty stuff on more-or-less-every thread on the board. Takes days to
remove it, sometimes. Of course, that's a HUGE forum that makes a
"good" target.

If you are thinking of newbies who drop in with one big question and then disappear
again, well... I've probably done that a few times here and there myself, searching
for this or that, testing the waters, stumbling around on this winding information
super goat-trail best way I know how....

Yes, I've seen a couple of "shotgun posters" here, but on the whole I think we
are doing great.

And we should remember to thank our host Steve for making it possible!

We rarely seem to get spam and when we do Steve kills it quick. Come on...you even been on the Pirate 44 board? You have to pay $20 per year to get a "red star" to post pics and use the search function and even then your post will get littered with links on keywords to other sites.

As a side note...I'd happily pay $20 per year for this board.....

So I'm not quite sure when you are considered a regular and not a Newby anymore, but it seems to me that if it is early April and somebody joined the board on February the 23th. that this person in my opinion still also is a Newby.
I know I am a newby, and NO you will not get any spam from me. And I will be visiting a lot here over the next year.

You are 571 names from the top of the list and 63 from the bottom; care to rephrase the question?

Actually, conerning what the alternatives are, and where some of the new people may have drifted in from, this is a good thing!!
