Just realised I have been a member of Mudcat for one quarter of my life (no, I haven't measured it to the day!).

Wonder how that compares with others?

It's strange that Sandra In Sydney has similar figures, but a much lower percentage. Maybe these things work differently down under.

I'm a mathematician by trade and training, but we don't really do numbers, you know. You want a statistician for that. We rarely go beyond "Sounds about right". As in 14.5, that's about 15. 64? That's about 60. 15/60 is a quarter. Nigel says 23%? Sounds about right.

I lurked for a very long time before joining, following lots of years of being addicted to the Digital Tradition. I had a copy of the DT on 3inch floppy discs - I think it took 5, back in the days when I was on AOL dialup - so somewhere in the 1990s

First post with this name was 2008 - does that count as long term?

I can't really do the % thing because the 40512 posts do not include most of every October and November for quite a few years when I didn't post at all. I used to enjoy fall hiking through the fly infested bog country of Kent County, New Brunswick, Canada when there weren't any flies flitting. I spent weeks by myself without speaking to another human, save the odd time I had to venture to "civilization" to pick up essential supplies and do laundry. I miss those days and nights. Just me and the trees and the stars.

2008, came across the site when searching for stories of a colourful south USA politician, called Mudcat.

Especially enjoyed the linked info, varied perspectives (I have learned from), interesting folks and humourful comments. Quite often, discussions stimulated me to learn more, a big plus. I also read most music posts, but dont have the music knowledge to contribute much.

I have only been told to F-off a couple of times here, (a badge of honour, I suspect), as stirring things up can be interesting when times are boring (some if tge pms following such events are often interesting). I dont take offense by insults, deserved or otherwise. I just mostly like people and diversity (opinions and people) and learning from others, the crusty and the meek..

Only check in now annd then, and do miss some of the folks who dont anymore.
Keep up the good work mods - it may come back on a better path.

Hi all,

I first posted as a member in May 1997 but had been lurking before that for a while.

Chorus: Let us go to the banks of the ocean 27-May-97 - 10:35 AM

I had never heard of the song and held absolutely no hope of finding out the name of it.

At 11.07 am, i.e. only 32 minutes later, there was the answer, posted by an unnamed guest.

So I've been a member 19 years, which is 32% of my life.

Hi Donuel,

I think using the term "lurking" started as a bit of an internet joke, like skulking in the background, listening and watching but not actively participating. "Skulking" is another good word, I think.
