do we have a lot of lurkers?

I have 245 views of my post below, and 20 replies. . ?. ? that seems creepy to me that random people could be reading my posts, but not commenting. ?I guess just a reminder that this is the web and it is public. ?

Re: do we have a lot of lurkers?

  • That or a lot of us with no lives that keep checking back everytime a new post is made. Smile Raising hand...that would be me!!
  • Embarrassed Raising my hand for checking this post more than a few times

     But, I have wondered the same thing as you too...  Are you doing OK?

  • I should clarify that we check a lot of posts more than once. Didn't want to make light of your posts. 

    Been thinking about you. I hope find a way to relax tomorrow during your day of pampering.

  • Yeah I re-check posts all the time do. ?I always figured that made up?discrepancy?between?replies?and views. ?But in that post case 20 some?replies?and 240 some views?! ?It just freaked me out a bit. ?Just a reminder that this a public forum. ?

    ?

    but thanks for asking about me. ?I'm ok. ?Trying not to dwell. ??

  • I'm guilty of opening posts and not even reading them just to make the "new" symbol go away. I'm sure I did that a few times on the post you mentioned. I hope you don't mind but this post got me curious to what the other post is about so I went ahead and finally read it. I'm so sorry to hear what your going through. I can't imagine how difficult all of this is.

  • I've checked probably a dozen times on that post for updates, I am thinking of you, but don't have any insight on the subject at all. I think the count shows how many snoops are on the board (Me being one of them, obviously =))

  • Just for clarification: ?I don't care if "you all" read any post I write. It was the thought of a complete stranger, like an old?hairy?dude hanging out in his tighty whites, reading about what I am going through that creeped me out. ?

  • I also check the post to make the new thing go away. I also check out a post and read the replies but sometimes have nothing say so I don't always leave a reply. I also check in from time to time to just read up on everything.

    EEEWWWW!!! That is a visual I didn't need! LOL! I think the respones here are just so you don't have to worry about a hairy dude reading your posts. It just shows that the count could go up easily.
