Looking at the members list, I notice that a hell of a lot of people have registered but never posted. Although I disagree in forcing people to post in general, perhaps making registration not finish until they have introduced themselves in the "Knock Knock" thread would be a good idea. That way they break their posting virginity, and having done it once will be more likely to do so again.

Since it's possible to read this forum without registering, I'm not sure why anyone would want to register without posting in any case. (This applies to several other forums of which I'm a member.)

While there certainly are people who have registered and then just never posted, I suspect you'd find that most of these have attempted to post.

Their attempted posts have either been deleted as spam, or have failed to post because they were identified as spam on pressing Submit. I won't go into precisely how that works and actually I'm not sure if we're still doing it, but we used to have a system where first posts went through an (invisible and automated) pre-screen before they actually posted.

You might ask why we retain all these people on the member list, why we don't just delete them and make the member file smaller, but there is a good reason for that. If we were to delete them, they could use the same email address to register again; if they stay on the system then they can't.

Damn, wish I'd thought of that. I have a warehouse full of penis pumps and counterfeit Viagra to sell. :-)
