    Guests. Who ARE they? What do they do? What do they look like?

    So I was just browsing a thread, as I am wont to do, and I notice this at the bottom:

    There are currently 19 users browsing this thread. (1 members and 18 guests)

    HOLY CRAP! I'M WAAAAY OUTNUMBERED!


    Who are these guests? Why don't they sign in, or up? Do they have low self esteem & feel they have nothing to contribute? Are they scared?

    This is really bugging me now.

    To you so-called "guests" (if that IS your real name): Sign in, dammit! I know you're reading this!

    WUS is often used as an educational resource by folks researching a specific watch or simply curious about them in general. Some will eventually get the bug, but the wise ones get out before its too late...wish I did

    Sometimes I'm too lazy to sign on.

    Really?! Mine stays signed in and not being signed in annoys me as I don't know which threads I've read, posted in etc.

    You are not safe.

    Guests are robots that record what watches you have spent the most time looking at on the forum.

    Then they check the MRSP of these watches from various dealers.

    Then they report back to your wife.

    One of those statements may actually be true.

    I didn't sign up for a long time (about 6 months) because I felt I didn't have the knowledge to contribute anything useful to posts. So I trolled around under the radar for a while, acquired the basics before I finally made an account.
