I'd be interested to see how many threads & forums you lurk on and how many you post on in a year's time here. Or any other forum I guess. Kudos to you if you find the time and resource to keep posting at the same rate; i.e. looking at a thread and having something tangible to say in reply. Every single time, no buts. You lurk too, I 'm sure. Window shopping, as Pete put it.
You can't change the weather, not much you can do about lurkers either. Especially as they'll read but won't reply to your thread
