we don't have the DVDs but we do have the Great Pumpkin and Charlie Brown Christmas on VHS and we break them out and watch them a couple times each during the holidays. 

as for the guest invasion. It's an unusually large amount of activity and is ok by me until they start complaining or criticizing. Then I think they need to register and be a part of the community.

guests can be very annoying sometimes. I find that a lot of them are opinionated and rude.  I don't understand why someone would want to remain a guest, lurking about, when they can join the site for free. ::)

I wasn't sure what a "bot" was either, so here's the definition I got on Wikipedia:

"A software program that imitates the behavior of a human, as by querying search engines or participating in chatroom or IRC discussions."

Philip has noticed this, as mentioned on the Surveillance Thread. I wonder if it's a lot of webcrawlers or something like that.. because it doesn't seem likely that 30 or 40 actual human beings would be viewing this site in guest mode at the exact same time, all in increments of no more than two seconds.

Well, I've been a member for over 12 years, and there have been times when there's been a multitude of guests in the early years; that's only because webcrawlers were able to access it easily and it would create a lot of traffic on the server. Chucky eventually did something about it.

Yes. I think it's been that way for nearly three years now. The last time guest posting was enabled, it was too easy for spam to get through; there were like 30 or 40 new threads, all with spammage in them.

Yeah, often times if you see a post that shows up as "Guest", it's most likely from someone who deleted their account (or got banned). Any such posts from late 2013 or later are all from former members.

Apparently there was another big boom of Guests online earlier today, according to the stat panel. There were 463 "people" accessing the site at one point (I bet at least 460 of them were Guests!).

They seemed to calm down a bit yesterday, but they're coming back in droves, here and there.

It has only been 36 for the highest so far today.

Best not to be far too many.

Whoa, 58 were spotted just now... and then the number went down to 27. Still, it's probably fluctuating as I'm typing this message.

It appears the highest reached for yesterday was 67, and today's highest is currently 29...

Of course, the figure of 67 could refer to total accesses of the site at any one moment; that is, the combination of registered members AND guest viewings (although the Guests likely dominated).

Yesterday hit 61 online, could the invasion be coming back?
