Hey, mk --|
My understanding is that "'lurkers' R us"...when we're online & reading, without announcing our presence. I guess you'd especially qualify for that designation if you haunted a board & no one EVER knew you were there.
OED definitions for "lurk" include: "...the action of prowling about; [slang] a method of fraud; to hide oneself; to lie in ambush; to shirk work; to idle."
I am quite familiar with those last two in particular...
As for your question @ Jorma, who knows? What makes me doubt it is, first, a fantasy that if he did lurk here he'd see all those qualities Eth so eloquently mentioned yesterday -- the insight, fun, community, loyalty, & love that Paul & the people on this board inspire... & Then the fantasy splits into: a) If he did see this, how could he object to a message board on the JA site? Or, b) If he's pissed off at PK, why would he want to know about any successes of his? And then I get to, c) Let's just get back to playing together...music, words, jokes; que sera sera...
