I never "lurked" before I joined, well I guess I took a little peak before I joined just to know what I was geting into. But it was a little 5 minute browse and then I thought "hey, I know what's needed here! Some other guy's opinion. Hey, I could be that guy!" And so I became that guy. Nope, never been much for lurking, at least not on forums anyways. But as plenty of women walking on their own in the greater Hull area will attest to, I do enjoy the occasional lurking in real life. I also don't mind a bit of skulking, creeping, slinking or prowling.
I often wonder what this place was like when it first started, must have been pretty damn cool. I'm not even sure my house had internet around that time. I guess my forum was just my bedroom, and the posters were me and my 3 best friends. I remember the mod, who I affectionately knew as "mum", banned me a few times for the use of bad language. But she would never ban or warn the other users, always picked on me. Pfft talk about forum favouritism, that mod absolutely abused her powers.
