"does anyone ever get removed"

I don't think anyone gets entirely removed but some have been converted into "leavers" and at least one got converted into a "guest."  If you come across a "leaver," you can access his/her profile and posts but the "guest's" profile and posts are unavailable.

Am I the only person watching the number of members ready to help you message as the number increases! It's interesting to see presumably new members joining all the time. Just waiting for it to hit 280,000 now.

I've never seen the member statistics.
Coincidently I'm currently listening to "More or Less", BBC Radio 4, "the programme that interrogates topical numbers and statistics".

We do try to keep profiles upto date so that any poster can see, we have our deceased members and also some members whose email has stopped working, but old members do frequently get intouch to update to their new emails addresses

Guests are folk who have asked for their profile to be deleted.

We have a lot of member who do family history in fits and starts so may only log in when they receive a new reply to their topics.

Hope that helps

I  have  often seen older  posts being answered

A family member found me quite  by accident,  I  think  someone  must  have  seen the post  and  told  them, they  had  been discussing  it  over  Christmas dinner  in New  Zealand and  replied to me, I  also  think sometimes members  just scroll down at old  posts  that  may  not  have had many replies  and  replied themselves, done  it  myself when  I  have  been at a  loose   end for  anything that  catches  my eye

... I've from time to time written into the search box some name or word that has then thrown up some very elderly posts. sometimes, that's been good for me and the original poster, advanced both of us in our searches.

Well, the 280,000 was reached on Friday and now we're another 50+ into the next thousand.
Just interesting to see people are joining all the time.

I've never seen the member statistics.

I've found them, on the Home page. It also says there are "6.4 million helpful posts".

I first joined in September 2004, and my first post was asking about my Walder ancestors of Slaugham.

So much info on RC now it has become a genealogy database of its own, although the search engine often tries to "put words into my mouth" when I search for keywords, as if it thinks it knows better than me.
Researching:

LONDON, Coombs, Roberts, Auber, Helsdon, Fradine, Morin, Goodacre
DORSET Coombs, Munday
NORFOLK Helsdon, Riches, Harbord, Budery
KENT Roberts, Goodacre
SUSSEX Walder, Boniface, Dinnage, Standen, Lee, Botten, Wickham, Jupp
SUFFOLK Titshall, Frost, Fairweather, Mayhew, Archer, Eade, Scarfe
DURHAM Stewart, Musgrave, Wilson, Forster
SCOTLAND Stewart in Selkirk
USA Musgrave, Saix
ESSEX Cornwell, Stock, Quilter, Lawrence, Whale, Clift
OXON Edgington, Smith, Inkpen, Snell, Batten, Brain
