    There are 74,597 registered members. The newest member's number is 89,113. What happened to the other 14,516 members? Banned? Were they silenced because they knew too much?

    If you can log on, then the accounts are still active. Those innocent people (well, people anyway) that you murdered are not among the 14,516 missing members.

    You fail at understanding the topic. The 14,516 missing members do not have active accounts, that's why they're missing. You can't log in as those members no matter how many people you kill.

    Go right ahead. If any "authorities" try and give you a hard time about it, tell them I said it was OK.

    They are FBI/CIA/Interpol/Al Qaeda accounts. They monitor these forums and will take action if some topics have contents that are against their beliefs, rules, whatever, etc.
    And since I spoiled their identity I might get sho*foop* *thump*

    We did some member pruning a few years ago. Accounts stuck on validating or people with no posts were deleted I believe.

    14,516 is the exact number of people that have bought the PS3. The accounts were deleted through them having bad taste in consoles, and also deep pockets [​IMG]

    You see, after you buy a PS3, you get shot.
    The reason 7 people still have a PS3 is because they escaped.

    I doubt they even had the time to ban/delete 15,000 members.
    But if they do have the time for that then seriously.. :\

    getting rid of the people that haven't posted is an easy pruning thing. i can't remember whether it's built into the board or is an ipb add on and you set the parameters and it does it all for you. [​IMG]
