I think we should do our best to deter new members, Mr Tyrant! Who would want The Shire over-populated!
Mind you, we are gradually getting more "high" posters. GB and Eldo and Durin and Beren were here when I started. Then I think it was me (and everything took on a Heavenly quality) and then you, I think. Then came Noom, and Ringdrotten. Ally and Jolly Cotton pop in. Lester Cat arrives, then goes - he reminds me of the Cheshire Cat, you know. Probably, given seventy or so years, we should have about ten serious posters by my estimation (maths is not my strong suit I grant you). If our "ways" deter folk, well, maybe they're not the rambuctious bunch we need here. You must admit, this forum is quirky and colorful. That's why I love it. And let's face it, we are a very welcoming bunch, for all our family disagreements!
