Be good to see more of those 14000 getting in on the conversation. Comming from an engineering background, I get why some are reluctant to voice their view but we're talking bushwalking, not publishing in a scientific journal.

Commando expresses views that aren't mainstream but no one is ripping into him, his opinions are respected.

Long term, its community and the bigger and more voices that get involved, the better.

Those figures are unfortunately exaggerated by spammers. I was just looking at the full member list, which can be sorted by join date (http://bushwalk.com/forum/memberlist.ph ... memberlist). Scroll through and you will see hundreds with dodgy links in their bios (mostly to porn, pharmaceutical and gambling sites). They are bots that only join to post links with the objective of pushing those sites up in search engine rankings.

Given the huge numbers (I'd say the number may even be in the thousands), the forum membership is greatly exaggerated.

It'd take a lot of work, but a forum administrator should really spend a day deleting these spam accounts, banning the email addresses, and making the forum a less attractive spot for spammers.
