Are those the famed 'suicide doors'? I have the opposite problem with mine...where the wife has parked a bit too close and the door just springs open further (on flat ground) of it's own volition...usually just missing her mirror, but not always.
The member count is currently at 14,444,783. Yet in the Spam forum, Member 14,743,769 is one of the more recent mentions. So is the member count actually the net number of members, meaning that close to 300,000 accounts have been closed? I don't imagine too many people close their own accounts, so this suggests a truly vigilant and vigorous enforcement by the site admins.
