I noticed a sneaky trick utilized by other websites such as Pinterest and Twitter..
They hide content, as soon as you enter any page on their site you are prompted to sign up.
Thus my suggestion for Less-Real is to do the same aha, and I am wondering about this..
Is it hard to do.. What would it involve.. ^ ^

It would increase registered members for sure, but it would also scare away many visitors too. Someone who's just too lazy to register and just wants to see the content they came here for. When I google for some piece of content, like an answer to some question for example, and I get taken to a website that doesn't show me the answer unless I register - I leave. It's much easier for me to just click back and click another link on google, rather than register. Cause if I want to register, I'm gonna do it either way, whether you demand I do it or hide it somewhere in the corner. There are exceptions, which are sites like facebook, where the whole point of facebook only works if you are registered. But it's not the same here.

I agree with you for once. I run away as soon as i see sign up sign before I see the actual content. This trick is used by many Porn Sites, I hate it.....
