I don't quite understand what it's supposed to achieve. I mean, none of them have posted, so who is going to see them to click on the website? I agree it's a pain - but it seems so pointless.


Because when they sign up they appear in 2 places, firstly in the members list and also as the "latest member" on the front of the forums, so although I agree their exposure is limited, even if 1% of "us" view their crap, they feel some sense of achievement confused

Quite simple actually. It's just a script that goes through the motions of an average person registering for a website.

Not saying for sure, but maybe they have their computer set up so that there is a dialog box with the code-pic on it. Then they put in the info.
