Being of a slightly cynical nature....is there an equivalent statistic for the highest number of members online? - as opposed to members plus "guests" which always seems a little suspect to me.....

Good point!

Didn't look in detail at that as I'm not available on the dates they offer.

Oh good lord not another Vertical Scope Scam

I'm Staff and I don't get the "alfaowner newsletter" Richard care to PM me a link so I can see what the latest scam I've missed out on?

I might even post a link in the staff lounges that will of course be ignored.

The Staff don't either mate, we were asked if we liked the idea and we were encouraged to "contribute" we didn't like it but Vertical Scope did.

So the News letter that goes out is composed by a Faceless Canadian Internet Advertising Company that couldn't give a tinkers cuss about the community they bought

Over 70% off the traffic on this site is from users that arent registered, just searching for information.

Maybe the cold spell has upset a few alfas!
