I don't find it creepy. For that matter, who cares whether he posts or not. There are a lot of users who just read and don't contribute.

If Mike doesn't wish to contribute any longer, so be it.

Lurking on these forums is a time-honored tradition :)

^ This.

He reads but doesn't feel like posting. Not like he is the first (nor will he be the last) to do so. We always have had "lurkers" that just come in, read, and never post.

Old and new lurkers alike, we welcome them all.

I find the term lurker creepy in itself. The word is negative, it used to mean someone laying in wait to ambush or strike, but today it is given to someone reading message boards, forums, etc without participating. Are they waiting in ambush or just interested in what is being said but choosing not to participate because of a variety of reasons. Lurk, skulk, creep, prowl, slink, sneak, etc. You get the picture. Why not a term like readers, or viewers? No negativity. Not that this site can change the term that has been chosen to describe viewers who wish not to participate. Just saying.

I call most of them vultures. They are the first to pounce on a good for sale deal leaving the regular contributing member in the dust....
Keep your eyes out for them when a deal comes up, they usually have between 2 - 20 predator post while continuing roaring high around the SkyRoadster forum. Don't let the poop hit you on your head..
