    Members vs guests

    92 members, 942 guests online now. That seems odd to me. We have nearly 10X the guests on this site right now. How is that even possible?

    It seems to be becuase of the host company this site uses
    as well as the Bots hits I guess , like the links for ebay at the top and any other thing that chris and the gang has attached to this site [MENTION=1720]cgilmo[/MENTION]

    The guests are for the most part search engine crawlers and robots. This site is a big spam target. We stop a lot of it.

    Please note: Card collecting is my hobby, not my life. I don't take it that serious and like to keep it fun.

    Skynet is taking over. Terminators, robots and droids are infiltrating our hobby. No wonder '90s Fleer Metal cards have jumped in price lately.

    They are harvesting them for resources.

    With virtually zero new content and, as I write this, posts from three days ago still on the front page, one would hope members stay as members and not guests. This is supposed to be the busiest time of year for message boards such as this and yet, it seems the opposite is happening here. Its sad actually.
