Default Posters vs Lurkers

It is easy to know who the posters are but I bet a lot of us are curious about just how many lurkers are out there.

The question is, Are there more Lurkers or Posters??

If your a lurker, let your "silent" voice be heard you can vote and still not have to post.

Almost 19,000 members and you only see maybe a few hundred regulars post often. I'd say there are a lot of lurkers.

Vote up.

I post a few times a week, but am also a lurker at times, just depends on the threads and if they interest or pertain to me I guess.

Poster... Er, lurker... Basically just like DKW just said, lurk on a day-to-day basis, and post when I feel I can contribute.

Although I'll admit that I "lurked" for about a year before I joined, I guess I should have joined sooner, could have had that post count up at least a couple hundred more by now

Just to let you know...

You have to be a gold or platinum OSO member to vote in the polls - I'll guess that most lurkers probably can't vote.
