I know we have lurkers. Half the time I am one, just because I am to lazy to sign in. We don't have members that won't post, just because someone might get mad do we? I talked to girl that was a member of trapshooters.com, she would read it, but she was afraid to write anything.
We've sure got lurkers-most if not all are Govt scumbags!
We don't bite - heck the so called "lurkers" should just post. Maybe there would be some interesting conversations. :D
Watch what you ask for. Remember BigTins.
I am guilty of lurking as well.
You could lable it voyerism, but most of the time I just don't have a need to argue or show how intelligent I am. Which I are not.
Plus, if I were to make a shitload of responses just to have an impressive post count I wouldn't be helping the community here. Time will take care of my post count, and experience gained from the board will allow me to help someone in the future.
What was that old poem again? About the "wise old bird"? The less he spoke, the more he heard.
If you spend most of your time broadcasting you have little time receiving.
This is my only defense.
I am thick skinned, so it didn't bother me. I was gone for a few years and couldn't remember my log in, so I started all over. The third time I posted something some snot called me a Troll and said I shouldn't give my opinions until I had posted more. Now you wonder why you have lurkers and not posters, especially with the young people?
I know what you mean. I have been known to lamdaste asshats that stomp on new people.
Some instances I've really expected a PM or two from mods, but haven't yet. Asshat'n hasn't happened on this board yet. Well, maybe once or twice.
The ak forum and gunco are my recreation. Thst's mostly because I see that the regulars are more willing to nurture rather than use any excuse to "rub" their own ego by making someone else feel foolish.
3dited to add...
post count +2 :>

Like I said master b 427, I am thick skinned, and I don't care what you are.
USMCE4retired. You are correct. When I first got on 1biggun and colokrink helped me a lot on the AK forum.
