In the last week we have had a number new members from all over the Middle East and South East Asia. Many of these members are former Muslims from Islamic countries. I notice this because I and a few of the moderators scan through the new members daily looking for bots whom would post spam. It's how we largely keep the site clean of it. If you ever see it, let us
know and we'll boot them quickly.
The recent influx leaves me asking myself the question, "What is the impetus for the new members?" Is it random? Did the Think Atheist website get brought up on another forum of younger people in the Middle East? Is it a trend of youth walking away from Islam? Or is there a simple explanation like the South Park threats that is causing a youth to say enough is enough?
If you are a new member from the Middle East whom cares to share an opinion or why we might have seen a recent migration to the site from like minded people, I'd be interested to hear it. Welcome to all of the new members!
