Just wondering what everyones thoughts are on this?

The Tavern has, probably, less than 20 regular posters, yet i often notice over 50 guests browsing the threads.

I enjoy the discussions in this forum and it has a bit of a family (somewhat dysfunctional Smile ) feel about it. You sometimes forget that anyone can read our posts.

Errr..... no. Definitely not. It could do with rather more genuine diversity, and people usually prefer to read what they are getting into, before they join in.

True, although we used to have a lot of diversity before the gangland wars scared them off! Underbelly 48!

Members of Nicks could join, have a look and decide from there whether they participate or not?

I'd be surprised if the people browsing were not Nicks members, but it's one reason I don't disclose too much personal information on here, at least outside the PM system !

I come in and browse but don't bother logging in unless I have something to say.

Imagine David's posts becoming public when he runs for the Senate for the Australian Conservatives in 20 years.

The "I was young and I got over it" defence is widely used and accepted in Conservative circles. It's almost as popular as "I know that I have let down my wife, my family and myself by this moment of weakness..."

I think the visitors are doing it for Stuis recipes. He is channeled by Louie. Closed forums are a sign you having something to hide. You can ban the ones you don't want.

Isn't that what the Bored Board's for?? Shocked
And look how well visited that forum is Rolling Eyes

Of course it shouldn't. I'm always a 'guest' until there's something to say.
