Thanks to everyone for helping us pass this milestone!

(Actually, we started counting quite some time after the forums started, so the number should be bigger, but that's the number we count so that's what we should celebrate.)

Cheers! Here's to 3m...

BTW, because it uses up so much server/database processing power we only add up once a day, so that's why the number stays the same even after you've just posted.

Gosh we're a verbiose lot!

Helproom or Speakers Corner, maybe?

  laurie53 13:59 23 Apr 2009

I would think Helproom.

Posts rarely stay on the first page for longer than a day.

Definitely the Helproom.

The spam is an indicator or our success - we attract spammers because we come so high on lots of Google keyword searches. As the global recession bites deeper I expect to see an increase in spam originating from the Chinese mainland. Most of it comes from there now anyway.

It's a fact of life, so we must live with it and delete it as it appears.

I think most of those postings are mine, with Bingalau second...:-)

Not much else to do up here in the frozen north and being so far away from civilisation...

Most of us don't get to see much spam of course, because it's reported to you and deleted in short order.

Just as a matter of interest, how many do yo get each day/week or whatever across the more popular forums?

Would be good to have a "report as spam" button. if > 10 members click it it's removed until you can review the removed one's?

I think that would work quite well.
