Why do people always use the word "lurker" when introducing themselves on forums? Isn't there another word we can start using instead of "newbie" and long-time "lurker"??
I am glad to be the grumpy observer on the forum today.
Besides that, hope you enjoy the forum....
Welcome to the forum! Glad to have you join.
Well... a lurker is just someone who browsed the forum a bit before joining.
Introducing yourself as one just lets everyone know that you might be a bit familiar with the general rules, what types of discussions are had and how the forum works.
I don't see anything wrong with using the term.
