    Lurkers...

    Post  Waireka on Tue May 11, 2010 8:13 pm

    I don't have an issue with them, lurking is awesome, but surely you feel compelled to post from time to time?

    What is stopping you? Are you scared? I think how bullseye/markslove/8csomethingblahblah has been treated her since being honest shows there's nothing to be scared of if you're straight up, yes some people may disagree with you or not like you, but that's reality.

    You must be those people who don't go to events and parties because 'so-and-so' is going to be there.

    To be honest I always lurk. Not to cause trouble but to see if there is anything of interest to post about. I have never taken anything from here as I see no point in it. I stick in facebook a lot these days. I am finding forums boring of late however I am not sure weather its me that has out grown them or they are just that. BORING!!!!!!!!!!

    I don't object to people taking stuff, I'm aware the forum is open and viewable... I object to them taking it and addressing it elsewhere instead of here.

    AND, you have 44 posts, you are not a bad lurker.

    I lurk but only because I have nothing to say if on the rare occasion (like this) I want to say something then I will (like now Cool )

    Isnt taking information from elsewhere and bringing it here the very reason this forum exists? Why does it offend you when it goes the other way?

    I lurk because I have not, until now, seen anything that compels me to post.

    Good morning.

    Good morning to you, Miss Daisy!

    Who's offended?

    And what topics of discussion would compel you to post?

    I very rarely post on any forum unless there is a topic that interests me. I do spend a bit of time just reading posts though and there have been some very entertaining ones lately, especially on here. Some of you guys are quite funny.

    Surely I dont have to point this out to you but: the difference being this forum is open and the right of response is anyones. No one has to join to see what is being said about them here, and anyone can post to defend themselves.

    V

    the other forums where membership is denied based on the fact you are a likely topic of discussion - and god forbid you get a right of reply, or worse start some meaningful debate.

    Or Smilecity where many of us are banned.

    And I dont think anyone is offended, but everyone likes the opportunity to respond to a comment/claim/complaint about themselves, and it seems poor form to take an issue to another site, when it could be addressed here. Unless you don't want to be addressed of course, and just want to bitch under cover Smile

    I agree with Relict & YDEKM.

    ... and yes 'Miss Daisy' I agree that this site has a lot of reposted posts from SC. Many members here are banned from there, myself included and don't have the right of response, also, people react to posts in here as to do so in SC would have their post deleted and/or them banned.

    In the case of posters like SOB, with his chronic deleting and his open lurking, it's a good place to vent frustration.

    The difference is, ANYONE can respond here and not be censored, ANYONE can read what has been said.

    Please keep in mind SC is not the only site I am referring to lurkers reposting in. The other sites are restricted from even being viewed, let alone responded to.

    since you got me banned last time, I don't really head in there too much - I got my $300 and go there in the evenings. To be fair, it's all a tad boring. I want laughs - that is the main reason these sites exist for me. I can get tits from other sites, and BJ's whenever Psalter or Sav visits. But for the rest of it, I just want shits and giggles

    I confess - I have been a member for quite a while but have never posted, I just lurk from time to time. Just haven't had anything to contribute to discussions - I am more a forum reader than a participant. No bad intent meant on my part and I certainly would not take anything said in here and raise it in another forum.

    nothing to contribute? What the fuck do you think the rest of these morons offer? Seriously, I have provided no comment of value or worth since joining here, but I make sure the rest of these dicks have to put up with me.

    I really enjoyed your posts in SC, so would love to see more of you here if possible, but that's just me.

    I lurk in an Aussie Muay Thai forum, but rarely post. In fact, one post there got me so annoyed last night I got a bit Waireka on a member who has no idea who I am (ID is under hubbys fight name). Since then I've posted several times.

    There is nothing wrong with lurking in the way you do it, but I'm pretty sure you know this.

    What is stopping you?

    Can't be bothered. I have a look here occasionally, have posted once or twice I think, and I do sometimes read something interesting and consider posting a response, but then my "nah fuck it, effort required" function kicks in and I don't. I do visit here more than SC, can't recall posting over there for months.

    Internet laziness.
