Those who sign up, make a brief foray into the Lounge, post a bit and leave after a short period, bored or offended or getting a life. I bet there have been hundreds if not thousands of them.

The permanent fixtures are few and far apart. Even fewer are those with less than four digit member IDs.

Then there are the sock puppets. I would post under my real identity, but that is too risky nowadays. Though we theoretically have freedom of expression, even the most casual statement could be misconstrued and come back to bite you on the behind. Since what is released onto the internet can never be truely retracted, it is not worth the risk.

I wonder how many members would be left if inactive accounts were wiped and members renumbered? (Remeber RENUM from the bad old days when editors couldn't move the caret location vertically? Like that) Around three times the online count, accounting for time zones? Maybe add another 50k for sporadic visitors?
