Who are you, why don't you post?

I've been on this forum since the day and hour it went 'live'.

I look at the names below, in the 'Users online in the last 24 hours' and I haven't clue who at least half are. Now by that I don't mean having met you, though I do like to meet board members, I mean I don't know you from your posts, if there have been any posts.

That's not a criticism by the way, it's just an observation. 

Do you just like to lurk, or is there any reason why you don't post?

I could start and tag a few i'm talking about to get your attention, but I don't want to do that. As said, just as observation, i'm just curious.

Naw, i'm not talking about someone like yourself, I never knew you before this forum, but kinda got to know you a bit now as a poster. 

I go days as well without posting, dependant on my mood or if I find the current content interesting or not.

I don't doubt it :default_biggrin:

Don't know, I suppose because I only ever really used Pattaya Live before, that's maybe why I don't know a lot of names?

Don't know him, though his reputation certainly precedes him.

Hardly ANYBODY knows him or has knowingly met him because he does not seem to wish to socialise with any forum members.

The closest I ever got was him noticing me wandering around the Tues/Friday Market and asking me on the forum if I had bought anything. Why would he not say "Hi" and introduce himself to me?

I think some, maybe many, members do not post because they have yet to visit Thailand and maybe they feel they have little to contribute until they do. I say just join as after all some of our regular contributors have not been for years and it does not stop them from expressing an informed opinion. 😀

Sometimes I forget to sign off so it appears I'm on here 24/7, but might not have been on for days.

Some people don't post because they cant write or are just lazy, or get pissed off with the tech, or just don't want to interact with others.

 

A bit off topic, but -

I always get a kick out of seeing "the look" of many guys walking around. As if they are sending out a signal "don't approach me, don't ask me anything, don't even fucking look at me" while they frown and look like they are miserable. I think lack of money for some, uncertain direction of their lives, and the relentless afternoon heat stroke may have something to do with "the look".

I've always been of the mind that the vast majority of members never post at all. And posting is not a requirement of being a member. If I remember correctly, the old Ssssh and PA forum state their membership of well over 100,000. Yet it seems like only a couple dozen were regular posters with maybe another dozen or so dropping a quick note in from time to time.

Just my 2 cents worth

I have been a forum member in Thailand since 2002 and it has always been like that with a relatively small number of contributing forum members dominating the overall post count.

Thinking back to those early days I would be highly embarrassed to read again my shag to shag trip reports, with photo's, from 2003/4/5 which were very juvenile and made me sound like I had found some huge honey pot to dip my digit into for the first time. That might have something to do with the fact, I had!

I wish I could go back and do it all over again.

I would change nothing. 🤣

Yep    Ever since I first discovered it has been a great source of entertainment for me.

Been doing some cleaning up in the VIP section as there’s a few we have moved down as they didn’t even bother posting anymore and like we have said on other threads all you need to do is to post once in a while and you will stay in VIP

but I don’t think it’s fair to other members posting often onto the lower sections and having non posters in VIP

I think they are just miserable fucks .. and who fucking cares .. I certainly don't ... just let them get on with their lives .... and me with mine ... because I am not the most friendly guy when some f**k wants to interfere with "my space" !
