Try bring up most new members. What happens to all the new members who "don't exist"?

Bob,

I'm not quite sure what you are getting at. The only purpose of membership on this Forum is to block spammers. So there is no concern about whether a member "exists," whatever that might mean. I do know that more than a few of our members are now deceased. There is no mechanism for removing their accounts. Nor can I think of any purpose that would be served by removing their accounts.

With all new members I make it a habit to click on the new member name to learn what I can about them. If shown their age or employment Lately I've been getting this member does not exist on most if them. My concern is that they not get back online and they truly don't exist as Miditzers. Probably just a software glitch but I worry.

I know you don't remove people. To do so would remove their expertise and guide from the past. The members that only last a week or less and never post could be removed but it might not be worth the effort.

The "non existing members" do not show up in the members list either.

I thought the purpose of the membership list was to let us communicate with other members. "Oleseo" is listed as newest member and has been the newest member for several days. Clicking on his name brings up he "does not exist". The newest members according to the members list are all May 4. Nothing after that. What is going on?
