Default Why are there so many "members" that havent made 1 single post here

Why are there so many "members" that havent made 1 single post here, there are 298 pages x 30 members per page = 8940 members that havent made 1 post, I see "cheap viagra on line" is a member?

Where do you click to post a new post rather than reply to an existing one? ( go Aussies in the Ashes)

We have tons of trolls. They register, then put up nonsense posts with commercial links, often in the signatures. Here's a recent example:

http://www.fornobravo.com/forum/f3/h...one-14814.html (hello everyone!)

Given the quality of the english in the posts, i gather this activity is offshored often. The point is not so much to sell cheap viagra to the oven building community, as to game search engine ratings, which are based in part on how often your website is cited in other places, particularly blogs and forums.

As to the no-post members? Our new members are moderated, and a spammer has to be reasonably persistent to get the message through.

I have been lurking for a couple of years, dreaming of starting my oven and bookmarking certain build threads, where to find stuff in Houston threads, and other potentially useful threads. This will happen when I either finish all the current projects in my house, or move to a new house.

I did post about a year ago to ask a question on the Harbor Freight saw, since you guys have so much experience, but I guess that was deemed spam even though I mentioned my oven interest/ plans.

We'll see if this makes it through - if not, I guess I'll get one more tick mark in the persistent category and maybe eventually I'll have enough attempted posts to make it on board.

I belong to a board that I have been a member of since 1996. It is a private board, and we have people that post their first post now with a join date of 1996-98. They have been lurking for 12 to 14 years before they make their first post, during which time I have made 25,000+ posts, and the average poster probably has around 4000. 14 YEARS of lurking and then they post once?!

Lots more readers than writers.

Too busy reading all the other informative posts to post a post of my own. All of my questions have been answered thus far.

When/if my presentation gains approval from the Commissioner (Wife) and I get furloughed from Camp Honey-Do to start building, more posts are sure to follow.
