I lurk all sections except PA whoops. xD; I post in pretty much every thread in PA but beyond that it's rare that I decide I would like to weigh in on a particular thing. Usually the reason is that I don't feel confident that I know enough about the topic to produce a quality response or I think everything I would have said has been covered already.

I like lurking around in the Debates and Discussions sections because I never, ever argue or speak my mind so it's kind of fun to see other people doing it hee hee

Shout out to Tojours for being, like, an awesome debater

When you've been on PC for a couple of years, you start to see the same threads being made. I don't bother posting in the same topic I did two years ago, so I just lurk.

Yes, this happens all too often. In fact, it's kind of ironic that I'm posting about this. I just can't be bothered to express my own thoughts and knowledge on a subject every time I browse the forums.

I lurk when I feel as if my opinion won't really add anything to what's currently being said.

It's mostly me being nervous, tbh.

My goodness, yes. I almost always lurk as soon as I sign online. There's a lot of threads I would like to reply to, but I become shy and end up not doing so.

PC is dull lately. I just post in X&Y when new stuff comes out (already expressed my opinion in all the threads there in many posts), D&D when someone posts something interesting (or rebuttals what I have to say), CC&P randomly and Feedback / Newbie Lounge.

I'll skip through the rest, but older generation chitchat is worthless / pointless / boring to me. It's old news, and I don't play any Pokemon games actively atm so no point going in there.

So I just come on randomly and scroll through to see if anyone's responded or posted something interesting in the aforementioned forums, or I check my VMs. Sometimes a blog, here and there. Lurking profiles.

I spend most of my time lurking, except on BMGf, where I'm obviously a frequent poster. Usually I have nothing to add to a conversation or feel I'd be too heavily judged, so I'm used to just reading other's answers and watching from the sidelines.

Lurking is kinda my thing. I am usually timid to post on a thread, unless it's one that I can relate to.

I'm on PC all the time! That's why I'm the most active user! PC is pretty fun, but I think soon they gotta add Home-made mini-games. Way fun!

Super Rozu!!

Lately I've been lurking more than posting. Part of that is that I've been very busy at work and, even when I haven't been working long hours, I don't want to have to think and type stuff up in response to threads. Part of it is that I'm inherently nosy and like looking at the more salacious/scandalous threads without actually offering my opinion! I'm such a tease, I know.

Hopefully I'll be able to post at my usual rate in a few weeks time when work quietens down, but there'll always be a small element of lurking that goes on here for me! :D

I usually lurk when there's almost nowhere for me to post..this doesn't happen often, so I guess I don't lurk much. I also lurk due to intimidation. The feeling of a bunch of eyes seeing my every keystroke sends small chills.

Hell yeah. Even the archives, if I can find em. I lurk in the places where I can never post, i.e, Pokémon Trading Card Forum (Not even a single one card remaining), Battle Server (I am a l0ser) and of course, the Trade Corner (NO WIFIEEEEEE). These places I keep looking at, much longer than other ones, because I feel that I should've been able to post here. In that way, yes, I do it for long long periods of time.

I don't lurk. I'm either here posting or I'm not here posting. I have yet to find a forum better than this one though. I'd like to visit other forums too, but the communities are always so hostile and argumental over the silliest of things.

I wouldn't really say I lurk. I don't post in a lot of the threads I view, but that's more because I find I don't have anything to say. I consider lurking to be more along the lines of having something to say, but choosing not to say it be it because of laziness, shyness, or some other hindrance that you have some level of control over. Occasionally I won't post because of something like that but it's not often enough that I'd label myself a lurker.
