while posting a totally lame post in “IMHO”, i saw how long i have been a member of this prestigious board.
for over two years, i have lurked on the boards of SD. reading threads about who pissed off who, threads with subtle wishes of death upon others, stories of crazy ass & stupid ass people who colour our lives, sstories of the missing co-worker and debates that will go on forever and ever and ever.
but i’ve also learned ALOT (yes, i know its not a word, but i felt like using it) on these boards.
I do have to admit though, half the time, i’m afraid to say anything on these boards. i’ve seen how people get torn down with the witty, but biting remarks (please please please please don’t do this to me on this post. i may cry),or how a thread can go awry on syntax alone and next thing you know, that person is Pitted. So i choose to lurk.
how many of us lurkers are out there? hundreds? thousands? hundreds of thousands??
