    You know what got me to join instead of lurking? I couldn't see Monkeymans butchering pics, or any pics for that matter, and that just ticked me right off!

    Glad I joined :)

    Yep, a few are marked private. First of all, it makes it so Google and Yahoo don't crawl these posts and index them. It also encourages membership.

    We have a few other membership driving tools in place as well. The more people have to log in to view things, the more likely they are to contribute to the discussion. I like fresh perspectives.

    That's what got me hooked, started "lurking" around saw some real good post and then some area's I couldn't see. And since I didn't have to give up my first born to join I figured what the hey.
    Problem I have is not enough time to surf, I'm still reading through old post just to catch up. [banghead] Plus the kids are active so I'm always on the go.
