When I recently joined the Mod team, I was surprised at the numbers of new users I was validating, and I'm certain that I'm only doing a small portion of them... Every time I login (several times a day on weekends) it seems there are another 3-5 people signing up. One Saturday, I had a dozen waiting in the morning, and more throughout the day.
HF is a great place to hang out, and the people and attitudes here keep me coming back!
