Recently, Toby had this idea of giving people a given number of times they can visit a site during a given amount of time. Eventually, should they lurk too much and not contribute to any given post but instead silently read and probably silently judge, (I’m paranoid and menstrual), the text would slowly begin to disappear. This idea made me laugh for two reasons: One, it’d be funny to see who might be driven to go away from a site forever and who might actually leave a comment from time to time. (Gerry, I’m talking to you.) Two, I also found this funny because he CAN actually do this. I married not only a total nerd, but a nerd with a vengeance.
After I stopped laughing about it, I declined having him actually do this to my site because I firmly believe that if I “forced” people to leave comments here and there, I’d eventually run out of traffic altogether.
So, to all you lurkers reading this. I SAVED YOUR ASSES, COWARDLY LURKERS! I SAVED YOU REAL HARD!
You owe me, for I stopped the creation of Revenge of the Nerd, Part 5.
P.S. To be completely honest, receiving or not receiving comments doesn’t bother me.
