In the last few days I have been checking users whose name I don't know. You can do this by just clicking on their usernames and then looking in the top-right corner of the page that comes up. If you check on users who have posts on the front page right now, you will see maybe five who have been saidit members for two or three days.
I am not opposed to new members, of course, but what happened in the last week that brought so many new users? Are we being set up? One user of two weeks is calling for a downvote button. Think of a flood of new people and a downvote button—that is a potential disaster. So let's be welcoming but let's keep an eye on what they are posting.
What do you think of this?
