Yea. It baffles me why people would sign up and not post. To my knowledge there aren't any forums that require you to be registered to view posts. I know a few of them were spammers and that is why they have participation points, is because they don't get deleted with a post. Ah well.

Lots of people are just lurkers. Some of them probably visit frequently enough that they felt the need to regisiter but are too shy to accually post.

There's absolutely nothing wrong with lurking...I only post on the General Discussion board and then lurk in most of the others. "If you don't have anything intelligent to say, don't say anything at all." (Or another version, "Speak only if you can improve the silence.") :wink:

I've run into a few, but you're right there aren't very many. Lurkers are
fine with me as well, but I think I know why they register. When you do,
you are then able to keep read-tracking with your account. So even if
you don't post, you can keep track of where you've 'lurked.'

Just a thought anyway...Not sure people really think that far ahead about it.
