Is it just me, or are there an awful lot of lurkers on this forum?

I was reading the topics in "GTO General Discussion", and the ratio of Views to posts is .

Maybe I'm just used to Corvetteforum off-topic where the average ratio seems to be about 1 post for every 3 views.

I noticed that myself...... I wonder if its people from other forums getting info or checking on dealer pricing and sharing the info. I noticed that when I post pricing on certain "hot" items I get a ton of views and only a few responses and I know my prices are on par if not cheaper than everyone else.

Hmmm, I looked at this thread and didn't post, had nothing constructive to say . . . but then decided to come back and throw this in (don't like being called a lurker)

You're not lurker, if you read a thread and have nothing to say about the topic. This is actually better IMHO because you don't have to deal with all of the "Post Whores", like that "other" site.

I'm a newcomer to this GTO thing and actually visit all sites. Mostly of what you do at this stage is read and sort of get familiar with the ground. Why do you call "post whores" in reference to that "other site".? LOL, what's that all about?

I guess you're new to forums all together. "Post whores" are people who post useless statements for the sole purpous of increasing their post count.

For example... a person might post a question like... Does anyone know where I can find a 2004 GTO?

A post whore would reply, "no". Useless, serves no purpous, but adds 1 to their post count.

If you're not a post whore and you didn't know where to find a 2004 GTO, you would say nothing or if you did know, you would post a place where to find one.

Most people are guilty of "post whoring" once in a while, others do it all the time, like some on that "other" site.
