You guys aren't kidding. They are getting bashed over there!
Mods - Did you guys notice a large increase in new members this week over the previous weeks?
if you go to the members tab, on the right you can sort by registration date and use descending. This will give you an idea of new member registration(however this might just be an admin tool?).
I can't speak for the others, but I'd rather us have the right members, rather than just a bunch of members.
