I've been here since the days of rec.woodworking. I pretty much lurk now because
my main interest is making things - techniques, methodology, etc. The majority
of the content now is collector oriented, so I tend to skip those posts (so of
course, I never reply to them).
I still scan the list every day looking for the occasional bits that match my
interests, but the vast majority of the traffic I simply glance at the title,
and move on...
