Well, like many have already stated, I come here for condensed news on the Fins- and I thank all of the great contributors for that. This forum is great for that and is always on the ball.
Just like most forums, it seems whatever opinion I have, whether good or bad, positive or negative, there are many who love nothing more than telling me how wrong/stupid/negative I am for stating it.
I've argued with the best of em, but I just don't have the time and patience to defend every post I make. I find my time is better spent reading and surfing than responding to every interesting post I see. Most of the time, my opinion has already been covered by others, but I will chime in when it seems appropriate.
Also, I'm not sure what stats one needs to be considered a lurker. I see some on here with thousands of posts, many of them excellent contributors, but there are still a lot with little substance to add to many posts and use their post count to as a way to legitimize their opinions; like an argument from popularity or authority.
Your post count doesn't automatically tell people how articulated, intelligent or rational you are, or make you any less of a fan than those with 10,000 plus posts or whatever.
My two cents anyway...
