    I dunno. I feel like I lurk a lot, but I also post a lot sometimes too. I would guess most people on this forum "know" me in the sense that they've seen me post, they know my dogs and a lot of how I feel about certain things.

    I'm a lurker.. I've been a member since 2009 but this is my first post

    I don't have a dog right now and wont be getting one any time soon but I like to read and learn and look at pictures.

    Hi everyone :)


    (and I swear I'm not a huge creep but seeing as I don't have a dog atm I just don't have much to say lol)

    I lurk more than post. I was surprised the other day when I looked at my join date. I must have joined then and never posted much til recently.

    This exactly. I read pretty much every thread but don't always post unless I have advice or condolences or vibes to give. I do tend to post in most of the picture threads I read though. I feel weird looking at someone's pictures without complimenting them.

    I lurk on a few forums but I am a member for ease of searching and post am into so then if something does catch my eye a year later that I can't keep quiet on I can post. But for the most part I watch.

    Chaz I joined, posted a few times and then spent two years lurking for the most part. Got Traveler and started posting. Ill go through waves whet I will post more and then not, but I am always reading and wouldn't consider myself a lurker

    I lurk a lot. When I'm home with computer I'll post but most of the time I'm on my cell it for some reason it just doesn't like posting on this forum very much.

    Well unless I have a specific question I'm joining to ask, I always lurk a bit on a new forum to get a feel for the culture of the board before I actively start posting. If it's not my cup of tea, I don't post OR lurk, I just don't hang around anymore.

    Even boards I'm registered and post on, I read way more than I post. So often someone else has said what I would say, or I don't have anything to add, or don't know much about the topic, or just don't have time, that there's not much point.

    I have turned into a lurker. I barely sleep, let alone post on forums these days, but can't just stay away. So call me a once active lurker

    I post a fair amount, but read more than respond these days. Things have gotten super busy and Sawyer is just too good of a dog to really give silly stories to post about.

    And DocMom, I miiiiiiiiiiiss youuuuuuu!

    I'm somewhat of a lurker I guess. I try to post, but I do read more than I post. But usually only because either I didn't have much time for Chaz over a couple of days and have to read a lot to catch up on some things, or because someone's already said something better than I could have. Or sometimes I just can't think of anything to contribute. Even in real life, I'm not a huge talker. I am far more active on this forum than I am on any of the other ones I am a member of, though.

    Lately I'm a huge loudmouth and I comment on anything. A couple years ago I was a lurker for sure, I didn't post for weeks/months at a time but I would still read.
