Ok you lurkers this is for you. Ive noticed that a thread can have 10, 20 30 etc views before someone comments..........why?
Now that Ive managed to change things that peeps can see what the thread is about by just hovering your mouse why do you still go and view without a comment......................surely you arnt that boring or thick that you dont have a simple thought process (hope that wasnt to big a word).

Please enlighten me, I refuse to believe your pure morons or am I wrong, this is a discussion board?

I never bother with the little quote bubble that pops up when you hover. If fact, I ignore, detest, object, filter out, downright hate that feature. I wish I could turn it off. It's always covering up what I really want to read in the first place.
Sorry for my rant, but in light of the topic, I couldn't very well just lurk-n-leave now could I. :idunno: :)

I think the majority of "lurkers" are most likely newbies with similar problems with their bikes so they may take a peek and then monitor the responses as and when the gurus step in?!

Yep, I agree. When I first started here, I didn't feel confident enough to comment on many threads. Or I was just too shy.

And sometimes what I'm thinking is just plain boring. Sometimes it's just demented. Either way, it's not always worth sharing.

Well that post was a bit boring, and slightly demented :rolleyes:

Lots of reasons :)

Sometimes questions are posted that are too ridiculous to waste time responding to, or so poorly worded that it's a chore to try to make sense of it.

Sometimes the gist of a thread is not apparent from the short bubble that pops up so I have to click into it anyway.

I try to view threads from new posters and old threads that a new poster has added to just to see if they're spammers, if they're suspect I might check the thread a dozen times during a day to see if they've come back and edited a link in.

If I'm searching for something specific I might click through several threads.

Sometimes the thread turns out to be about aesthetics (which I'm not interested in), or electrics (which I'm hopeless at).

For what it's worth, I generally don't mind the hover thingy, but what would be really handy, is being able to see the last post in the thread rather than the first one.

I lurk once in a while. Sometimes, I just don't want to type anything. Mom say's to play nice with the other kid's in the park. So, some day's its just better to Lurk around. Other day's, :eyebrows: I let go, and release some of my demented, distorted, nothing is sacred, deranged, unbridaled stupidity form of comment, and nobody comes back for a while.
There now, I posted. :)

So, now I have had time to think. :evilaugh: Anyone having experience with rubbing two brain cells together, has an idea of what that might actually mean.

Igor, what was the NAME on the jar you picked????

Igors reply; Uuum, let me see, I think the first name was Abby. Yep, I'm sure that was right Master.

IGOR!!! WHAT WAS THE LAST NAME?!?!?!?

Igor reply's, I'm not sure,,,let me think now, Uuum,,, Normal! ya thats it, it was "Normal", Master.

Now let me understand this Igor; you went to the repository with the note I gave you that had the name attached to the brain I wanted you to get.

Yes Master.

You came back with a Brian named?! Abby Normal.

Yes master I think that's correct.

Thanks for reading my story:patriot:.
