Every day, every week, every month..

Lurking, lurking, lurking!

I get it, there are only so many ways to start your ATS posting, but come on!
By using this tired old intro, all you are doing is confirming that you are a cookie cutter of thousands of other posters before you. Be original!!!!
That is all.

Hear hear! Can we also ban for life anyone using the phrase "that being said" or other forms of the same? Just use a period and start your next sentence ffs.

What other terms for lurking would you suggest that former lurkers use instead of lurking? You have to figure that people who are that unoriginal might not have the creativity quotient necessary to find a suitable synonym. And would there be a limit to the duration of the use of approved synonyms before they, too become too unoriginal to continue using?

I recently went back to lurking.

If I stop taking my meds and decide to get active again I will be sure to post a "back from lurking" thread just for you.

The verb to "lurk" has more meaning than its current use on the net.
In reality,it was more about stalking with intent(animals/humans/ambush scenario)until the internet came along.
Now,dictionarys include its internet meaning as well:



verb (used without object)
1. to lie or wait in concealment, as a person in ambush; remain in or around a place secretly or furtively.
2. to go furtively; slink; steal.
3. to exist unperceived or unsuspected.
4. Chiefly Computers. to read or observe an ongoing discussion without participating in it, as on a message board.

"The Carpet Crawlers"
Genesis
There is lambswool under my naked feet.
The wool is soft and warm,
-gives off some kind of heat.
A salamander scurries into flame to be destroyed.
Imaginary creatures are trapped in birth on celluloid.
The fleas cling to the golden fleece,
Hoping they'll find peace.
Each thought and gesture are caught in celluloid.
There's no hiding in my memory.
There's no room to void.

The crawlers cover the floor in the red ochre corridor.
For my second sight of people, they've more lifeblood than before.
They're moving. They're moving in time to a heavy wooden door,
Where the needle's eye is winking, closing in on the poor.
The carpet crawlers heed their callers:
"We've got to get in to get out
We've got to get in to get out."


There's only one direction in the faces that I see;
It's upward to the ceiling, where the chambers said to be.
Like the forest fight for sunlight, that takes root in every tree.
They are pulled up by the magnet, believing that they're free.
The carpet crawlers heed their callers:
"We've got to get in to get out
We've got to get in to get out."

Mild mannered supermen are held in kryptonite,
And the wise and foolish virgins giggle with their bodies glowing bright.
Through a door a harvest feast is lit by candlelight;
It's the bottom of a staircase that spirals out of sight.
The carpet crawlers heed their callers:
"We've got to get in to get out
We've got to get in to get out."

The porcelain mannikin with shattered skin fears attack.
The eager pack lift up their pitchers- the carry all they lack.
The liquid has congealed, which has seeped out through the crack,
And the tickler takes his stickleback.
The carpet crawlers heed their callers:
"We've got to get in to get out
We've got to get in to get out."

I once lurked, when lurking, reading some posts.

Then I decided to lurk less, and create an account.

Ending my lurkage overall, but I still lurk without logging in just to lurk some at headlines.

Yep, lurk.

And! Did I mention I use to lurk around

Lurking is now replaced with "pussyfooting".

Hehe. Pussy.

Rawhide Lyrics

Lurkin lurkin lurkin
Lurkin lurkin lurkin
Lurkin lurkin lurkin


Keep movin', movin', movin'
Though they're disapprovin'
Keep them doggies movin'
Rawhide!
Don't try to understand 'em
Just rope and throw and brand 'em
Soon we'll be living high and wide.
My heart's calculatin'
My true love will be waitin'
Be waiting at the end of my ride.

Move 'em on, head 'em up
Head 'em up, move 'em on
Move 'em on, head 'em up
Rawhide!
Cut 'em out, ride 'em in
Ride 'em in, let 'em out
Cut 'em out, ride 'em in
Rawhide!

Rawhide!

Hahahahahaaa yes, I was unable to find anything that didn't sound completely illegal or just plain scary
Other options were loiterer, stalker, creeper, peeping Tom (my personal favorite), moocher, slinker, snoop, sneak, snake...oh my...
