    I am pretty much computer/internet illiterate. Guess it comes with age. Anyhow, I have noticed other threads referring to "trolls" and "lurkers". Exactly of what are these two adjectives representative? I apologize if I offend anyone with my lack of knowledge, but I am curious as I do not wish to be unknowingly labelled as one.

    A troll is a provocateur Salthebb.
    Someone who comes to a site
    with the sole intention of stirring
    up trouble with inflamatory posts.

    A lurker is someone who reads
    and never posts.

    _________________________________________________
    Dear friend Salthebb,

    I was a very late arrival to the age of computers. So, no need to apologize.

    Lurkers are people who read and rarely ever (or never) post here.

    Trolls are the disgusting people who show up here and post only for the purpose of causing trouble, anger or embarrassment for the other members.

    You seem to be very kind and considerate; always welcome attributes. Enjoy your stay here at the LPSG.

    Some trolls make threads saying 'look at my magnificent 13,5 inch penis' and have pictures of different races and sizes of cocks, some of which are blurred :D

    These aren't trolls, just fakers (or idiots).

    Glad to be of service...:smile:

    By the way, I noticed that both of us are now Gold Members... We recognize (and take advantage of) a good offer when we see one, don't we?
