I came for the cake. But then I found out the cake was a lie. So I stayed for the coal.

On here the stats are more realistic, what they include is someone with at least 1 post or if they have 0 posts has been active in the last 6 months. Everyone else has been purged. Divide the posts by the number of members and compare to other forums. It's 50 posts per member here, other forums are going to be in the 5 posts per member range.

The Spammers are special case becsue those posts get moved to a "trash" forum and are then automagically deleted after 6 months, those accounts get deleted on the next purge becsue now they have 0 posts. There is roughly about 150 accounts like that now. This forum is clean as whistle right now, I just spent the last week going over old accounts and cleaning out anyone that was spammer and overlooked. There was only 20 of them but they are no longer members.

Right now if every account ever registered counted it would be about 20K, also keep in mind I'm blocking up to 1000 spam registrants per day who never actually get assigned a member ID.

No you didn't lie you just need to use the correct government speak. You were unaware of the change in statistics.
