    I predict that BHW will hit the ONE MILLION mark by the middle of 2017.

    What do you guys think? . . . :)

    Don't know, but I imagine it will have 1000's of more JNR VIP/Donateors and it will still have the same 10 year old theme and look......

    I think it's probably at least 25% spammers, about 55% inactive and the rest are at least somewhat active.

    10k spammer accounts? That's actually great news and such a low percentage. I would have to say the mods do a good job and jump on those who make fake accounts and wiping them out fairly quickly. SO even if 50k had made fake accounts with the purposes of breaking rules I think at least 99% would be wiped out after their first ten posts. So I think it's safe to say the board is pretty clean. (Not saying people don't have fake accounts they use for legitimate purposes as well)

    Couldn't agree more. Would anyone expect that the site wouldn't have a certain number of "fake" accounts? Whatever the number is, this place runs pretty well and the mods do a great job in expediting that.
