Like a fair whack of 'em are spam accounts (whether human / Mechanical Turk, or automated bots) that attempt to post spam links, but don't get to (automated blocked / manual removal).

Yeah. Generally we ban spammers and remove any posts that they've attempted to put on the forum, but we don't actually delete the accounts.

These would probably account for the majority of such accounts.
Keep up to date on our facebook page or follow us on twitter.

So when you remove the post, their count goes back to 0?
Thanks for clearing that up.
For the ones that are not spam etc. mental!

Private messages trying to get tickets?

Might notice some of that if you cross reference by date joined.

I still have a pm in my outbox to a guy who was on flogging tickets 2years ago. Obviously hasn't been on since.
