    I recently noticed that quite a few "noobs" have either been spamming the threads with "new and interesting" stuff, or just starting to interact with the community, which is not a new or uncommon thing. The thing that makes me wonder is these posters joined BHW 2011, and some as early as 2009, yet they only posted once since joining, or maybe only a few times.

    I know there are lurkers here on BHW, but come on. One single post in 3 years? That's nuts. Or is their some kind of glitch where people sign up to BHW, then find a way to change the join date time? I will post a thread as one recent example I found.

    ***EDIT*** Here is an example:

    I thought so too, but a lot of these people joined 2011 or before, and just now posting for their first time. I find that "Extreme Lurking". lol

    It is not uncommon for people to buy/sell aged accounts on BHW.
