Am I a lurker?
« on: June 15, 2008, 08:10:59 PM »

OK, Today I reached a milestone- having spent a full 5 days loged onto this box. That's almost 100 hours of my life. Yet my post count is less than 250. Does this make me a lurker? I mean, I like to read, but 250 posts to 100 hours is.... low.

There was someone named muffin who was almost perpetually logged in for the first 5 or 6 months of the new 'Box, yet (as far as I know) never posted.
That's lurking. You're participating.

jdfu!

No way.  You actually make posts that say something, and if you've got nothing to say,
you don't post. 

One of my dad's favorite Presidential quotes:
Quote from: Abraham Lincoln
Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.

...and I don't think anyone thinks you're a fool....  do they?

We've had meaningful conversations, and unlike some regulars who actually know shit about me, I recognize your name.

Plus, it counts your time even if you navigate away with your browser open.

Now I want a muffin..

I wouldn't say you're lurking if you're posting some, even if it's not a ton. :)

I enjoy thinking of myself as a lurker, and hell your only 1 post away from 250.

Actually I'm pretty astounded that I've made as many posts as I have.

Raliel doesn't lurk either.

A lurker is someone who plain doesn't post, but reads a lot of topics. They may pipe up every once in awhile, but it's only when they feel comfortable enough with the subject, or confident that they can contribute. And nobody ever knows who the fuck they are.
