    How many of you lurk (read but don't post) because you are not comfortable with your english usage/ability?

    I think we need to clarify this, and for a variety of reasons...the forum seems to be growing nicely (after an somewhat mysterious and annoying period of stagnation), but we still have an overwhelming percentage of lurkers.

    They're not uncomfortable, they're afraid of the spelling police.

    That or they're just waiting to be authorised to ask for torrent sites invites.

    In other words, they need manker-immunity?

    Seriously, I think he'd be inclined to be helpful, for the most part; we only pick on those who should know better.

    its a shame that you need to have a degree in english langauge to be able to post here

    maybe the forum would have more members if this wasnt the case
    Those who dont learn from the past are doomed to repeat It.

    That would make this thread an effort to address the problem, then, wouldn't it?

    No, you just have to be a non-tit.

    Why are you still posting btw.

    Very kind offer.

    Are you going to borrow Busboy's wank pit, or just find a mutually agreeable spot.
