    Rob,you will find that a lot of these postless members are just enjoying our info and using it more for research rather than socialise..
    You will often see new members write that they have been visiting the forum for a long time though yet to make a post.

    We have a system in place here that will automatically pick out spammers and remove them.
    Sometimes a few get through and i have to remove them manually.

    Spam-O-Matic Statistics
    17952 Spammers Denied Registration
    10 Spammers Permanently Banned
    7 Spammers submitted to StopForumSpam
    6 Spammers submitted to Akismet
    1323 Spammy Posts Automatically Moderated

    As well as around another 150 users i have removed manually

    If you think anyone is dodgy or a spammer please contact me.

    While I post a lot on APS I don't post often on here as other threads answer most of my bearded dragon questions, so I lurk. I think that is true for quite a few other people. I think deletions should be based on when they were last activity as aforementioned.

    I am a member that doesn't post often. I agree with above,: not confident on giving the right information
    even though have had beardies for 6 years. I come on this site to get information and look at the photos of your dragons
    which I might add are great. I like this site because of the informative people and their love of beardies.
    This is the most I have ever said........my 2 cents worth.

    I have my first beardie and haven't posted because I don't have enough experience and every question I've had, I've been able to find in the forum. Just because I have a zero (now 1) post count, doesn't mean I'm not here reading and learning a lot.

    Oh how I love the peace and friendliness on this forum now someone is no longer on here creating a nuisance. Just under 2 years left, hope it lasts forever :-). Thanks so much Brett. It is such a great forum and so much more enjoyable now.

    Great to have you on board this forum Kate! Posts or no posts :-)
