Comment How many of the 5 million users are spambots? (Score 5, Interesting) 124

I'm always perplexed why the quality of the number of users is never challenged.

How do you know a ton weren't generated as apart of some marketing strategy?

Or rather, how can you NOT suspect that a significant portion of them aren't fake?

Has the issue of verifying online registration as belonging to an actual, unique person been solved with absolute certainty while I wasn't paying attention?
