The word "lurking" should be left out of all introductions.

Maybe they lurked so long before joining because they were paranoid about possibly being monitored by "the man".
That's why I waited a long time before joining. I think you finally reach a point where you just don't care who may be monitoring you anymore and go ahead and join as a symbolic act of "giving the finger to the man"!
