Brain food, that is!
I have a question about lurkdome and the lurking lurkers that, er, lurk.
I was about to start this with a "confession"as to how long I’ve been reading these boards before finally joining in. But, it occurs to me that “confession” denotes guilt, and while it’s clear that lurkers are not looked upon kindly, I’m not exactly sure why.
Please don’t misunderstand; I’m not trying to get defensive or challenge the consensus of the community. I just want to understand the reasons behind that consensus.
As a rehabilitated lurker, let me say how much I have enjoyed you all for the last six years. I have learned, laughed and pondered with you, albeit anonymously. I never seem to meet clever, quirky people like the lot of you in real life.
So, someone please’splain…why the stigma surrounding lurkage?
