Puzzling.....................

Something seems strange to me. When I got to the "Who's Online" page, I see all the regulars there, but I also see that there are about 5x as many guests as there are members, just surfing our posts.

My question is....Why are these people just visiting? The 1st time I visited here, I joined right away. It's not like it costs anything.

Not that I need more competition with some of my dumb ideas, it just seems strange to me that there are so people just sitting there watching us..........................

Is there someone out there.....................eeery, eh?

I just always assume that the answers given by us members are so good that there is no need for them to join and participate.

Well, those who take the time to search the previous posts and knowledge base usually can find their answer without ever asking a question.

Or maybe they're just stalking us...... ( shiver).

As a relatively new new member I've got to say there was so much good info to be read without joining, I was able to find my answers using search every time ( Jon advised using search before posting). I finally joined to ask a more specific question. I still am on a least an hour a day and rarely need to post a question, and The Lounge can be an interesting place to visit but a little scary to participate.
Just my opinion
Fred

I used to come here to look around, the reason I didn't try to join sooner is that on a lot of boards or sites, when I try to join a window comes up saying I need "enable cookies" while my computer is already setup to allow cookies. So I guess I just didn't bother.

I can't get on or use MSN groups in any way, and I can't get on the 73-87Chevytrucks's board either.

If you go to the "Edit Options" in your profile, you can set it to automaticly log you in....big pain to log in every time, isn't it?

Maybe scary is the wrong word, but someone new to this site might be intimidated, especially when the trolls are active. Thank goodness for The Dump
