    I am curious if any of you (assuming you are actually there), actually read our blathering, and if it sways you at all, at all?

    Come on now, don't be shy...

    I do click on all of the threads in here because I dislike having the emboldened topic titles making the screen look untidy. However I only read the posts of people who's style I enjoy if the topic doesn't interest me, if the topic does interest me then I read the entire thread no matter who's posted in it.

    For me, having my opinion swayed depends on a number of things; I am rarely influenced by a word brick or a post full of smilies, for example. Presentation is key to grabbing the attention, the content obviously comes in after that. Having said that, changing my mind about an issue because of a post in here doesn't happen that often.

    As to the lurker issue, I don't think I'm really that but mostly I will not make a post if I don't care for the topic or if something approximating my opinion has already been stated. If I feel I can add a different slant to the topic then I'll post.

    So you are anal-retentive, then.

    I've heard of that.

    S'okay; I have my moments, too.

    Then perhaps you might consider, rather than reading my posts, rolling them up and smoking them...

    Consider them a sort of intellectual marijuana.

    Just a thought.
