This... in fact, remove tribble, Stuart and of recent a certain Miss K Kat's posts out of the equation and I suspect the picture will look much different (to any other regular spammers I am sorry for not mentioning you guys too) ;)

You had to bring that up - didn't you? ! No amount of bribing seems to work with Ronny. This forum should be like the others - posts in the spam threads should not affect your post count :mrgreen: Then I would be the n00b I really am :D

It's not quite linear. It became linear (or just looks sort of linear) as the population growth rate stabilised, I would say.

@thEnaileDonE - :oops: I also wish Ronny would take those stats away. This is embarrassing. But then - if you take that I am female, and females love to chat, then it makes perfect sense. I just need to learn to chat less.

@-Prometheus- - some posts were lost when a fantastic thread vanished. Would hate to know what it would have been....... :shock: I shall have to get a job that keeps me away from the internet (which I will have soon - 6 weeks of internetless during the day) Then that 5% will reduce :mrgreen:

Does anyone really care? This forum has always attracted spam, it is part and parcel of what makes this forum fun. Technical questions, when asked, attract a fair number of intelligent replies.
Such is the nature of things.
