Gee whiz - we're being watched!

Wowzers, I just happened to scroll on down and found this little surprise...
"Currently Active Users: 994 (108 members and 886 guests)"
That's impressive.




But who are all these people watching us?

Are they mocking us?

Studying us?


Where'd I put my tinfoil hat....

They are several versions of "us", each one of us, from the future. In future, time travel will be possible but you can only go back as a spectator. You cannot get involved cos then you'll fuck everything up forever!

They're google bots or spiders indexing the forum.

I did notice awhile back

those numbers seemed to go up 2-3 times what they had been for years

so, that is the explanation

are you sure it is not the Patriot Act snooping for subversives?

I've always thought it was the random lurker who was either WAY too shy, just curious about U2 (but not really a fan) through some means, or is a "meanie" (I'm using the term loosely.) who wants the juicy dirt so that they can rub it in our faces.

Sorry...I have way too much time on my hands
