The Lounge is rated Safe For Work. If you're about to post something inappropriate for a shared office environment, then don't post it. No ads, no abuse, and no programming questions. Trolling, (political, climate, religious or whatever) will result in your account being removed.
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.
If I may make a guess.
For the sake of selling adspace you need to actually have reasonable knowledge of the actual number of possible readers.
I imagine there is a need to prune inactive accounts occasionally.
so this suggests a truly vigilant and vigorous enforcement by the site admins.
Not only the site admins
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?

Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
No, that's probably about right, from the "feeling" I get in S&A.
Most spammers don't post 1 message, so you tend to get repeats, and while the volume of detected spam is increasing (as the membership goes up, so does the attraction to spammers) I think it's likely to be around 40 or so per day at the moment.

AntiTwitter: @DalekDave is now a follower!
the CodeProject DNA, like that of Homo Sapiens, includes genetic ghosts of now extinct species that differentiated from the common ancestor, and then, later, interbred with the current dominant expression of the species.
Some current members clearly exhibit remarkable expression of these phantom species. I am sure you know who they are.

I've asked my mother if I have a gorilla ancestor close by in my family tree. Standing upright, the ends of my fingertips are only four inches or so from my kneecaps. I have the longest damned arms I've ever seen on a human. When I was a teenager and she would buy me long-sleeved shirts, she would buy the shirt to fit the sleeve-length and then have to take in several inches of material on each side of the torso.
