Title: 'Guests'
Post by: Rob W on February 23, 2011, 03:33:37 PM
Every now and then I look at the number of guests reading the forums, and there always seem to be quite a few. Many more than I would have anticipated.  Presuming at any one time these are different people, over the space of just a few weeks, even, this will be quite a large number (even considering some will be returning guests, if you know what I mean). I suspect Jules understands how these figures stack up.

So, presuming these guests have an interest in Man, and not thinking this was some gay porno site, is the band missing a trick in not being more proactive on here? 

Hopefully, George will continue and reap some benefits. (Maybe he'll become a gay icon).

Or am I talking rubbish?   :D

I don't track guests as, by and large, I suspect these are mostly regular forum visitors who are breeezing by without logging in.

We do still attract a new member from time to time - always welcome - along with a few interlopers from the spamming community, who I try to weed out regularly. A lot easier to keep on top of this now I have a computer back again.

I sometimes check the site out on a wet dinner break without logging in.  Occasionally access is blocked 'due to pornographic content'.  Which one of you is that then?
