It took me 6 months of “lurking” before i posted my first post. Im loving it now!
Eequalsmcsquared: Welcome and enjoy the CR!!
BEST IMA: I’m enjoying your posts! Glad you decided to jump in.
Eequalsmcsquared: so happy to see your posting & no longer lurking!join the CR fun!
i was also a lurker…. but then i decided to step in and enjoy the fun>>> was that a good idea? but its 4 real addictive……
sunflower: one addict to another, yes it is!
I was never much of a lurker. I found the CR and started reading the top thread. It was “Random Questions.” At that time it was something like 86 pages. I didn’t want to post something that had already been posted, so I read through the whole thing. Of course, I quickly discovered other people didn’t have any qualms about posting stuff that was already posted as I was reading the same things two or three times. (It’s even worse in the “A Humorous Item” thread.)
Anyway, as soon as I got through ALL those pages, I started posting right away. And I can’t eve begin to tell you how much time I’ve wasted in the CR. Right now I should be cleaning the kitchen.
Lurker wannabe. Safer that way. Maybe one day I’ll break the addiction and have all my posts deleted…
Jothar – if you want us to delete all your posts, we can possibly work something out… 🙂
I only read the shidduch posts.
Mod55, I’m not yet at the level where I am ready to say “goodbye” and have my posts deleted. Definitely before my kids get old enough to read them, though.
I’m ashamed to say this, but here goes……..
I was never really a lurker! My problem is the same as
mepal; & areivimzehlazeh; and others.
I CAN NOT KEEP MY OPINIONS TO MYSELF!
Why do the lurkers get to have one? Maybe we can have a support group too!
