Ok this could have been in the disinformation forum or a number of others, but I placed it here as it is something which has been bothering me about
this site for at least a year now.
I have been on here for several years and at times been so involved and lovin it, I scan all the forums looking for interesting news and oppinions,
and all the while enjoy the various avatars, people and personalities who post.
It may seem like I hang in ceratin forums but really I like all the topics found here.
So, having spent a huge ammount of time here you get aquainted with the members pretty well. Some you seek out to read their great posts, others you
try to dodge to not read their posts, but all in all we do cross paths often enough to become very familiar after a few years time.
Here's where it gets strange and questionable to me, I have taken note that in the past year and a half or about the time Skeptic went to washington,
a HUGE group of members began showing up that had older membership dates, but that I had never seen before.
Now at first I figured it was just that often members will go away for a period of time and then later come back and become regular contributors once
This began to happen more and more and the boards were becoming frequented by older members but not known ones in large numbers.
Now for many months I just shined it on and wondered if it was a way of manipulating the stats here on membership or hits.
Even wondered if it could be various people in the up stairs posting without having to deal with their notariety status. Kind of like the rich man who
goes to rent a wreck on his first date to unimpress his date, to see how she really feels about him...
Anyway, even if that was true I figured it was not my business and I again just ignored it. But it is just flooring how many members from the the past
4 years post regularly that I had never seen before.
Is there a conspiracy afoot? If so why?
There are SOLID contributors who just vanish, and there are new members all the time, but stay alert long enough and you will see what I mean.
