I know you're out there, I can hear you breathing
It appears that the second week in January has been declared National Delurking Week*. "Lurkers" is old internet slang for folks who visit a site where commenting is encouraged, but who choose not to join in. They lurk in the background. Most of us are lurkers. Archy averages close to a hundred visits a day, but only about two stop to comment.

Think of this week as one big consumer preference survey. Go to the sites you like and let the proprietors know what you like and what you dislike about their fare (start here). Let us know who you are. What kind of posts do you want to see more? Which posts would you rather never see again? Do you think this whole internet thing is just a fad that has about run its course? What's on your mind?

Remember: if you don't comment, the terrorists win.

* No nation was specified in the declaration, so it must apply to everyone.
