Re: Members list - incorrect data.

Drive-by members are common and many that join just lurk. You do point out an interesting fact which is that the majority of all posts are by the "long tail". In 2003 we had 518 members join 43 of which have been by the site in the last year.

Re: Members list - incorrect data.

To be fair, I think Facebook also counts members who have drifted off...

I am sure they do. Most sites actually just report total people who have registered and not the number of active users. We do actually do some house cleaning and remove accounts which registered but never activated their account by clicking on the link in the activation email. We do this every so often (once or twice a year) and have probably cleared out 5,000 to 10,000 accounts because of this. Many of them are spam bots which try to register and post.
