Thread: Whats with all the lurking?

  1. #1

    Default Whats with all the lurking?

    Everytime I get to the main page I always see that the ratio of members to guests is always very slanted towards guests. For example, right now there are 12 members and 82 guests viewing. And its like this all the time. So I ask you out there who have not registered and posted but continue to voyeur: whats with the lurking?

    Perhaps while searching for that Coachella spirit, they discovered you need boots to wade through some of the shit here, and have chosen out of morbid curiosity, to observe safely from the sidelines instead...

    Perhaps the answer to this is found in the thread titled, "This board Taints...???" Uh-oh...I may have just exibitted hypocritical behavior...

    Why do you spend so much time thinking 'bout things like ratio?

    The ratio of members and guests just before the lineup release will be 1-300.

    People lurk, doodles. It's the human condition. Didn't most of you lurk for a while before you spoke on here? To get a sense of what you were entering into? Nevermind - if you didn't - you might not be the type of person that needs to assess their surroundings before introducing themselves.
    In that case, more power to you - but I personally know I lurked for a couple of months before I posted. I like to know the temperature of the water before I jump in.
    I also had more respect for this internet microcosm community than I probably should have.

    Dude, I'm sure she's in bed. She's entitled to sleep in on a Sunday morning.


    I lurked for about a year. I don't know why.

    A large percentage of the "guests" are probably spiders or whatever you call them, who are indexing everything for search engines. I don't know. I don't really understand the internet. But I think that only a few of our guests are actually humans.


    I think I only lurked for an hour or so. I remember buying my tickets, and clicking for some reason on a link to the messageboard. I have no idea why. Ordinarily, I don't click things like that. But I remember seeing something and wanting to respond to it, and then thinking that it was a pain in the ass that I had to sign up just to respond to one little comment.

    I lurked until I saw a glimpse of Delta. Then it was history.

    Sometimes if I am reading a bit from work or something I'll show up as a lurker - that is I won't bother to sign in. Unless/until I come across something I feel like responding to.

    I lurked for a while when the 2006 line up was announced. I disappeared for about a year after I realized I wasn't going to be able to go. Jan. 07 rolls around and I registered, but changed my user name in May because of stalkers. Watch out for stalkers.

    Much worse than lurkers.

    The ideal response to this thread would have been to pump the view count up to 2000 with no replys.

    Maybe the lurkers don't actually like Radiohead, Arcade Fire or Daft Punk and live in fear of the nuclear flameathon that would ensue should they admit to this faux pas.
