Um, I may have missed the joke or the Spam intention, but how does one lurk at a forum that has a sign-in requirement to view the forums??? It's been that way for months, no? http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/blink.gif

You may want to tell that Mother Focker (hehe I love doing that) to give leniency to those who registered in the last couple of days.

Or not, what do I care. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/35.gif

Actually a real question. Unless of course, you are referring to them using other usernames or something? I mean, if a forum has you register to view or post, how does one lurk without signing-in?

Maybe I'm just too much of an Net Noob. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/blink.gif

In this case to Lurk is to be registered but not post. "Just lurking"

Glad to be deleted. I couldn't even be bothered to lurk properly, and certainly have no intention of posting. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/mockface.gif
Is this going to be an annual cull? Once a year lurker purge? Otherwise the lurkers will creep back in and infest the drains.

As a matter of interest, why delete lurker accounts?

I can't read the quoted post, since I've not registered there, but I just wonder why lurkers are regarded as bad news. Is there some kind of space issue, with non-posters taking up valuable spots for others? I'm assuming this is what's happened, and am simply intrigued. I have often lurked in forums, and to the best of my knowledge, said forums are no poorer for it http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I registered there back in the beginning, but I haven't posted or visited in 6 months or more now. In anycase, when I click the link above and logged in to read it, there was no message to see.

Just taking a guess at it..... There are about 27,000 registered users at CWoS. Less than half actually use there accounts. That's a lot of names, spaces and such going to waste I imagine. A 'once every so often' purge of those accounts doesn't seem like a bad idea.

Ah...overwhelming feeling of power?
Maybe...choking the limited resources over there?
I signed up there forever ago, what a cess pool back then, got the same "log in" screen.
Seems my email was banned, God knows how long ago that was.
I take it as a matter of pride, actually

"Is there some kind of space issue"

Ok, ok, sorry I asked - I assumed there's a general anti-lurk campaign, and it turns out the website's got more users than it has content! Heh.
