I go through spells... I could not lurk in he sense of not joining or posting at all... It would drive me nuts when there was a thread that really struck me and I could not post at all...

For a while before I had the iPhone I rarely posted but lurked a lot, posting on my old phone was a trial in patience.. LOL! I can and do post more with the iPhone but it's still not as easy as typing out a response on a computer...

I will likely semi-lurk now and for the foreseeable future because I am crazy busy and 99% of my "online" time is on my phone.. I am almost never in front of an actual computer anymore...

This. Plus most of my Internet time is through my phone and I hate posting long responses on it so I end up not posting at all.

I lurk on a few forums, specifically breed specific forums.

I read most picture threads here too but don't have time to post on them all. I used to really try to but I just am too busy altely.

I lurk on a few forums, but I'm usually a member as well. I like being able to sign in and go straight to new posts, instead of having to try to remember what I've already read.

I lurk a lot. I lurked on this forum for a good while before I actually decided to join it. I remember when I first discovered this forum, I was working the Information Desk at GMU and there was literally nothing to do but either read or surf the internet while you waited for the phone to ring or for someone to ask you a question. The first thread I read was one bashing CM (and back then I had liked him). Thus began my education!

I have joined some different dog forums, a few breed specific ones that I post dogs for adoption every now and then. I mostly lurk on those other forums because a lot of the time I just don't feel like I have anything to contribute to their conversations. I pretty much never post on and the cane corso forum, since I don't breed, don't own the breed or do any of the protection sports they do, so I can't really "talk shop" with them. But I learn an awful lot!

I'm pretty good at lurking. This is the forum I'm most active on and honestly I don't think I post much here either.... at least, not compared to some of you!

I used to be active on some rat and hamster forums, but I no longer own rats or hamsters so that leaves me without much to contribute there. But I lurk!

Really it just mimics my offline personality lol I keep quiet unless I really have something to say.
