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

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. :willy:

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) :lol: :D

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.

OK ..... I'm a lurker. I try to get caught up at least once a day so I'm here often. Usually i don't have much to say. I'm still in the learning phase. However I do comment when I feel a need.

I joined this site in July, 2004, and enjoyed reading the various threads and becoming familiar with the GTO. Just recently purchased a 2004 on 3-18-05 and am having a ball with the car. I joined the Corvette Forum in June of 2000 and I don't think I have 500 posts there yet. :cheers

This is unseemely, don't post whores and lurkers need different rehab sites? (although I do have to say that this one is convenient - I personally may need a membership to both) :party:

Wow, I didn't even know I had a problem.

And, I prefer the term "Post Escort" rather than "Post Whore".

And furthermore let's just call those lurkers what they really are, "Peeping Toms". Makes me feel so violated.

I hope to someday graduate into the hallowed ranks of way cool internet forum posting jock :cool ....NOT!

Seriously, if you need to get your self respect by creating an "us & them" from a harmless and useful internet forum, it's time to log off and go live your life. :willy:

Most of the posts just make me shake my head so instead of ranting, I just move along. Plus this is a single car forum so there really isn't much news or anything new that hasn't been said before.
