    Default What's you read:post ratio?

    How much do you read threads in relation to how much you post in them? Seeing how there is always more guests lurking than members and also members inside threads but not posting.. it seems like a good number of people are simply reading threads.

    So to these people, why don't you feel compelled to post? If I'm really reading a thread, I will most likely make a post in it. To me, it makes the whole process of being on this site more interesting.

    Probably about limit(x->infinity):1 for me. I rarely have anything constructive or insightful to add. (I'm an information sponge 99% of the time, even IRL...)

    I don't think I've ever logged out without posting something, but there are many threads I only read and not contribute to because I will most surely make a fool of myself.
    There are a few that just don't interest me.

    I'm not sure how to answer because when I post, I usually don't engage in a "conversation" of many subsequent posts. I usually say my piece and get out. If I've said it well enough, I don't need to keep posting.

    I'm not sure what mine would be over the long haul, averaged out. I post pretty frequently compared to some, but what many don't know is that I'm a speed reader and I read a lot more. I would guess it varies between 20 read to one posted in, to 6 read and one posted in. There are times though, when I will read not just 20 posts before posting, but 20 threads.

    I rarely post because I'll have nothing to add- I'm not good at answering fluff ... if it's a thread I'm really interested in, I might have to think for a long time to come up with a through answer.... maybe 10:1?
