Very few deleted, and for disciplinary action. We've been watching it creep higher. Anyone notice the total number of articles? Almost a half million.
The member numbers are off a bit due to deletions, so we actually go by the PROFILE number. Hold your mouse over a user'* name, and you'll see the profile number in the lower left corner of the browser.
We'll honor the 5000th member to JOIN, which will be profile ID 5000. This will happen a few before the ticker on the bottom registers 5000 members.
