There are already areas of this forum that are not in fact public and you have to sign up to view. 



I never log out ------------------------ I think it is only "off topic" that is members only.     :hi:

Unless you're going to PM every single member who has a review to their name?

Yea, it is just impractical to do so. If people are discouraged to post publicly and only PM those select few they are 'friends' with, then how do the rest of the active reviewers get the benefits? :unknown:

I "lurked" for a couple of months before joining last year and my first punt was really good thanks to UKP.

Now I can;t keep away, it's addictive !!

To me a lurker makes no contribution to UKP but is happy to take the information for their own punting gain, seeing the positively reviewed prossies and avoiding the negatives.

I'm not sure it bothers me too much though. If I've posted a negative review then the more punters reading it the better IMO, especially if I left the punt feeling cheated or short changed. The more punters avoiding the prossie the better, lurkers or not.

I guess there are many reasons for lurking and only a proportion will be taking all the info without giving anything back in return - greedy bastards  :D. We give plenty of wank fodder to the voyeurs, prossies can keep tabs on their reviews and hopefully not too many newbies are scared off from posting.... eventually.   


I lurked for less than 2 hours before my first post! Actually that may not be true, it was less than 2 hours since I joined but I don't remember lurking as a non-member. The motivation for me to join and post was reading a negative thread about a shit prossie who had been shit to me too. :angry:

I don't know what the answer is, but maybe now the site is so successful, perhaps more areas should be visible only to registered members.  :unknown:

When I open ukp it is always as a guest, and I then log on if I want to see if there have been any responses or want to make a comment. I wouldn't want the machine to auto log on for security reasons. It could be that a significant proportion of guests are actually members who have not logged on?

Yes, many of the guests could actually have registered, but if they don't contribute they are simply freeloaders.

Everyone is a Lurker until they sign up  :unknown:

I actually had someone with no posts send me a prvt message in response to a thread I'd started about Asians, asking me for more info on local parlours! Which was a bit odd and made me think COPS! Why couldn't they reply in the thread?

Yeah. I had a few of those; registered for a while, never posted but asking for info via PM.  Depending on how they worded the PM I replied. Sometimes the questions were too stupid I couldn't be bothered.

I was a lurker for about a year or so before I joined recently. The main reason I waited before joining was that I didn't have much punting experience when I first found this site, so therefore didn't feel like I had much to contribute. I also saw several new posters getting jumped on quickly for being trolls - in most cases they deserved it, but it seemed a bit harsh on one or two which put me off a bit.

I actually found the tips on spotting fake and dodgy AW profiles just as useful as some of the negative reviews in terms of stopping me wasting my money - so thanks to everyone who contributed to them.

Online Flunt

One of the problems is the amount of information available with the search, most topics have been done to death and if someone signs up to ask a question they get shot down. I have an issue with the dreaded "at discretion" which I was going to start a thread on. A quick search and there are threads galore. If someone asks about a pro$$is I've seen I will offer an opinion, apart from that there are more than enough opinions without voicing mine.

My last punt was Thai Kimmie, I saw her on one of her good days so sadly not much to add to the 7 reviews already posted.

Two questions:

1) Have you ever read a wiki without contributing to said wiki?
2) If yes, are you critical of lurkers?

Two words; Luke 6:35

P.S. I'm not Christian, by the way.  :)

Not sure that wiki and UKP are comparable.

As far as I understand, Wiki is not a discussion forum.

UKP is.

Also, not wanting to nitpick, but "Luke 6:35" is not two words.

Edit: The concept is. Anyone can contribute to a wiki, just like how anyone can contribute to UKP ... it's whether you choose to or not.

As far as I understand, Wiki is not a discussion forum.

UKP is.

Yes, but that's mainly because UKP's subject matter is subjective whereas a wiki's usually tend to be objective. Did you know wikis also have talk pages which involves discussion?

Also, not wanting to nitpick, but "Luke 6:35" is not two words.

No. But if we're splitting hairs, then six-three-five is.  ;)

cal of lurkers?

WTF- if you belong in a pulpit then just preach your shit to own your congregation and keep it there. This is a punting site not a forum to quote obscure passages or where will it end? Punt, review, and leave your shit to your pulpit. Just my view  :hi:

Since when did churchgoers own the rights to quoting the Bible.  :rolleyes:
And while we're at it, which part of "I'm not Christian"are you having trouble with?

This is a punting site ... ? Punt, review, and ...

Yes, I do both. And in case you haven't noticed, I do it without bearing any ill-will towards lurkers ... which, you know, is what the subject of this thread all about?

... not a forum to quote obscure passages or where will it end?

In relation to the thread topic, the context of that entire verse was selflessness. Which goes along with the spirit of sharing on a forum like this, and is also what I'm trying to advocate.

Granted, the "love thy enemies" shit at the beginning is misleading ... but I couldn't find any saying/idiom that purely said "don't expect anything in return", so sue me.
Instead of jumping to conclusions next time, perhaps you need to gain a little perspective first? Just my view too.  :hi:

Fuck me you just can't stop with the preaching. Others may appreciate your style but it's not for me. Next thing you will be quoting pages from the Readers Digest DIY Manual to share your well read insights  :wackogirl:

I first discovered this site last summer when I did a Google search for a WG I was interested in and came across the reviews section. As it is a public forum I don't see anything wrong with lurking, as it can be beneficial to those who do punting but don't want to join as members.
Banning reason: Troll
