I lurked for years because there were many threads that needed no real input from me other than to sit down and read them and also really this outlook
meant I tended to use this place as a database and a think-tank, looking for answers.
My prime reason for coming here was not because I wanted to make friends or to shoot the breeze but to find out things about the world that the
mainstream would never touch, and the more I lurked the more I realised I did not have to say anything. Searching from top to bottom I was finding
theories or plausible answers to pretty much everything I had been questioning.

have a right to lie and hide the truth from us.

That is why I lurked for years – perhaps three or four years before registering.
Just one reasons of a million reasons to lurk
