Well, you can't blame those non-posters... I mean, it's like what we do when we go into topics and then don't post something (-like I had just done but realized the irony).

Maybe these people are very forgetful, and just can't remember their passwords.

Or maybe they realised that they didn't have anything interesting to say, when faced with the high quality of other posts.

Or maybe they had nervous reaction, like strapping on a parachute, and freezing in the doorway of the plane.

Or maybe they were about to post, but were called away just before they could by someone offering food/sex/whatever.

Or maybe there was a person with severe multiple personality disorder that registered many times.

Or maybe there was a very greedy person who wanted all the cool names for themselves, so that they would have a name with meaning, but everyone else would be called by random strings like ljkhkjg, and would all bow before the 7337 master.

Or maybe they registered years ago, and have died.

Or maybe they were confused and thought they would get some other perks.

Or maybe they have been registered by the employees of the system, and the first post by one of these "sleeper" accounts will be the secret signal for the Canadian invasion of America. (This allows for the communication of up to 600 messages) If a long dormant account starts up now, then this will be the secret signal for "someone has discovered our nefarious plan!"

Sometimes, one just gets busier IRL and have a bit less time to pay attention and post. I am trying to get a bit more involved with the whole thing though.

I have recognized the error of my ways. Let me offer my sincere apologies to those who had great intentions for their registration and were unable to post for reasons not their fault. [Frown]

Tell me about it!

I'd just like to say - it's tough on virgin lurkers - I was a lurker for a while - I was very intimidated by some of the adult content and the odd tasteless joke... this place can look very scary to newbies... (at least, I hope so!) [Wink] [Wink]

...I was a non-registered, non-posting lurker, but I decided I had to comiserate with the guy that lost his grandmother on Christmas. It struck a chord. Other than that, I don't have too much to say...

Wow, I just increased my number of posts by 100%! If only I could do that with my friends, salary, floorspace in the house, etc...

I thought they got nervous of Spungo, hence register but not post.

personally I only post when I have something good to say, I cannot stand when people just post constantly to drive their count up so that they can become a Moderator when elections are open or so they can claim to be better than the others.

oooohHHHHOOooooHHHHhhhh! Lookit all the new smilies! [Razz] Anyway, I've not been posting because I'm back at school, busy with term papers that I'll never see again, teachers that don't care who I am, grades that mean nothing in the "real world" and a websight that won't get enough traffic to attract attention. I'll post that later. [Razz]
Well, some people just decide to leave, like the one who didn't like the AY2K comics, and some of them feel they have to leave. It's just the way of life. I like posting here because I feel you all have very valuable opinions and are very intelligent in your own ways. Plus there are some hotties...but I'm not getting into that. [Big Grin]

1870 posts on the 2nd of January and over 2000 today, 11 days later, why that is only an average of 12-13 posts a day. Very easy to do when you are used to posting, I mean I am up to 5 today in about an hour.

Anyway, I though this was your life? [Big Grin] [Wink] [Razz]

Actually, to be honest, this place has gotten me through some rough times. Some days I wish I had never found it, and some days I'm grateful.

And some of us are just quiet. Oh, and having a somewhat overwelming new job and only being able to use a computer at home on otherwise unallocated evenings after the kids are in bed doesn't help.

I mean some of my computers haven't even been turned on in MONTHS. I'm way behind in my game playing. And I gave up on my pathetic social life back in the fall. How can things get any worse?

On the other hand we got Hacker 3.0's bedroom painted this weekend. The color he picked out is "Yellow Raincoat", and yes, that's a good description of the color. What do you expect of a four year old?

Damn, I've been here nearly two years now and I didn't hit 1000 until a cople months ago. Maybe it's because I only post when i have something (not necessarliy of quality, just something) to say. Also, my post count takes its biggest leaps when I'm trying to procrastinate. Like right now I need to haul my lazy butt to the post office and dig three weeks of mail out of my box (I just got back to school), but it's fscking cold and blowing snow outside and I'm still wet from getting groceries and I'm three hours behind the rest of the world and round 8 of Xanthine's undergraduate education begins tomorrow and I'm just hoping I don't come away as bloodied as I did last term and I can see a massive shit storm coming in and yeah, okay, I'll stop.
Yes, that was a run-on sentence. Forgive me. English was my first langauge. Therefore no one taught me the grammar.
