Hey! I'd stop lurking if someone gave me some hotspots... !
Well, what's to stop someone posting for a while, getting the passwords and the goods then relapse to lurking?
I realise that this is irksome when you put a ton of time and effort in and would like to see beneficiaries contribute at some point, instead of just beneficiary-ing. But I really like the approach you have now-- making rapier comments about lurkers. They're hilarious (mostly ) and they provide a nudge in the right direction. Just enough to encourage people that we are really nice and not like that aspersion-casting ScupperProFrank fellow would make out that we aren't..
I am a bit of a lurker these days, since I am still out of work, broke and job hunting. Reading about your adventures gives
succour and pain. GReat to read, but sad that I cant go out more or do more trips like Capt. Wrights and so on.
Hey Critter! Thanks for the kind words. I appreciate them.
