    The ABW, Edit Profile Page.
    When we go to our Edit Profile Feature, we get these options:

    Additional Information

    Type of Member

    Describe your participation level

    Student
    Affiliate
    Merchant
    Parasite
    Reporter
    While we can almost easily spot a Reporter by the questions they ask, I wonder how many members if any, will describe that they're a Parasite.
    Most of the times we found that out, after we have done some work and have keep an on what they post.

    There are no honest Parasite, so why do they have that check box?
    We all know they're crooks, but I don't think they're that stupid.

    I think it's just a joke, or maybe to let them know that ABW knows they're lurking. I would doubt that Haiko expected any to actually admit to being one!

    I never noticed that...

    Of course it's never been much of a secret that the parasites love to lurk at ABW, and sometimes they even post under an alias. This usually doesn't last long, though. They're pretty transparent.

    Yeah I thought it was funny. I figured Haiko would put members on parasite permanent status if needed.

    Ok ... now even funnier .... there are five people who have checked off that box since I instituted it, one who I actually think is a parasite, one from mrireaserch (revenue mag) and the rest, well I'm assuming, clueless.

    heh, I almost ticked it just to see if anyone would notice.

    Visions of pitchforks, torches and running kept me from doing it.

    Yep, I was tempted to check that box as a joke, but I had a vision similar to Drastic. I looked for a box for lurkers, but since there wasn't one I had to choose affiliate. Lurker really wouldn't have fit me because I can never keep my mouth shut for long.
