Not strictly true. If you look at the "Who's online" section, you see a lot of anon. users checking out move threads and the free lessons shrug

As for retina scanning, I know lotsa people (my stepdad one of them) who are totaly paranoid about cookies (sorta like an online fingerprint), and forumns tend to run on those...

Posted:But at the same time, the forum has to work somehow. I guess the choice was keep using the forum and brave a cookie (gasp) or stop using the forum. For one thing, this is a commercial website, not an online cyber-commune thingummy. Malcom has to keep it nice because it's part of his commercial enterprise. And for another, so far the vast majority support this move. So yeah, however you want to think of it, the people who were "put out" by this move had only their interests at heart, not the interests of this community as a whole. So tongue to them.

What a wonderful miracle if only we could look through each other's eyes for an instant.
