Was perusing the new member stats cuz I thought it'd be neat to see how many OO refugees have joined and how that has impacted the membership.  Buuuut, I'm guessing they're not accurate or there has been a crazy ton of spam accounts made:

New Members per month number have been 1000+ since march with peak of nearly 10k in June?!

But the total members on the forum is 3009?

What gives homies?

Yep, we've repelled over 40,000 spammers.  Gotta love it.   It's hard work keeping this place just full of you reprobates and keeping the other reprobates out.  slywink

we need a good VK test to weed out the spambots.  of course, if we had, CeekayBot never could have hit 60k.

Yea, I underestimated.  We are closer to 70k spammers we've blocked.  It's kinda nuts, but a result of increasing popularity I guess?  smile
