Perhaps my good - natured joshing of Black Dragon was
misunderstood. My point was that the validity of vinny's
pole results would not be affected by the distribution
of posters vs. lurkers for two reasons:
1) Vinny requested a count of all 'all lurkers and posters'.
He didn't establish any distinction between the two
types of participants; a lurker is as good as a poster.
2) Most lurkers who post return to lurking instantly.
Are they posters or lurkers now? Who cares? Not I.
Most posters are lurkers, most of the time. (Offshore
jewelry advertisers are an exception, I admit.)
If vinny was concerned, he would have asked
that individuals sort themselves into one group or the
If I was granted one wish for the improvement of the
group, it would be an end to the chronic political and
personal attacks that characterizes so much of the
traffic on this (and other) groups. But, that's just me.
