    I wonder why

    As I look at the site I see that there are 43 guests looking at it also. I wonder why they don't sign up?

    Maybe they don't want to get addicted to the forum as we are!

    It's the media voyeurs looking for misbehaviour!
    The true measure of your character is what you choose to do when you think no one is looking.

    Everyone was a guest at some point. Most people who view a forum aren't registered members, even though without the registered members the guests would have nothing to look at.

    Joining is quick, easy, and free! So if you're a guest and reading this, stop being a pussy and register!

    Some times some of the "guests" you see looking at a forum are search engine slurpers.

    The various search engines use "bots" called Slurp Sliders or Spiders to amass information for search engines.

    That's right, I was an unregistered "guest" for months before I registered, intending to only lurk and never post. I enjoyed reading the forum but didn't think I'd fit in. Then I registered just to access some search functions, went into the chatroom out of curiosity, and met Reca, who interrogated and then befriended me and encouraged me to start posting. Even then it took me a month to get up the courage to start posting. Now, 6149 posts later, here I am. Thanks Reca!

    Ya, thanks Reca, your a gem! I'm kidding, I personally enjoy some of Jenna's interesting outlooks on life.

    My dad, I miss him every day.

    That's interesting. I didn't know such things existed.

    Nope, they're not. When a guest is on-line it tells Site Staff if they're a search engine spider, or if they're a guest, it tells us there IP address.
