Most of his posts are in OT.

here's to hoping there are many lurkers, not just me.

most of mine are too. whats the point?

the point is, I usually don't have anything constructive to add to posts but I enjoy reading them with my free time. Thought it was a weird hobby of mine but it's nice to know there are many more people like me :)

I used to lurk almost daily for a few hours here or there, since the good old Anandtech golden days. I couldn't even venture to guess how long ago that was. Dunno why I finally rejoined after I lost my password and account eons ago. But one day I was REALLY bored, and I rejoined, and the rest was left to infamy.

I used to just access the Hot Deals section until I found OT. Now I don't even go to the Hot Deals sections (personally, it's subpar compared to other sites), but I gotta have my ATOT fix daily :thumbsup:

What is the point of another voice added to the din. If I have what I consider relevant, I will add to the discussion. Otherwise just flipping though on a daily basis.
