?Can't help but noticing that there's dozens of members here that were "Last seen" the same day that they joined.
Is this thread like the Bermuda Triangle where members disappear without trace?
Uh-oh . . . . . cue the Twilight Zone music.

It means add one more in agreement with what was just said. What he said - +1 (add me to that).Alrighty then: What do the "+1" and such mean? And I apologize in advance if this is as dumb a question as I think it might be lol
