Interesting idea. I wonder what impact, if any, that would have on a potential new user's desire to continue with this forum as opposed to a different one. My guess is the owner/operator of this forum would not want to implement something that would be proven to detract people from wanting to sign up and join. Remember, increased member numbers results in increased traffic, which ultimately results in increased ad revenue. But I do agree from an operational standpoint.
