Neither, more like lookers and lurkers. They list similar online Guest numbers on most forums, and there's always a bloke called Googlebot on them.
On the rare occasions I've looked at the Members List, it seems a fair percentage that do register, (once they've carefully picked a forum name with Silver or Wing in it) leave it that and have never Introduced themselves or posted. It's the same with that Birthday List, a lot of forum names appear on there that you've never heard of or recognise from their posts.
Then down in the dark depths of the Chatbox are messages, hellos, and requests, again from members you've never heard of. Why they choose to go there instead of posting on the forum is something I've never quite understood.

I Also, don't understand the desire for anonimity. Suspect it may have something to do with the security of minimizing recorded personal information. I personally feel this forum is a very rich information resource, and benefits a lot from the cross-cultural membership and participation.

It could be partly technology to blame. If I open up this site, it doesn't automatically log me in even though I have set it to do that. I use chrome, it may happen with other browsers. I may even bounce around to a few posts without noticing that Im not logged in.
