LOL. I lurked for 2 or 3 years because:
I didn’t trust anyone online: this is in the heyday of Nigerian princes needing you to help them save their fortunes via a relatively small deposit you’d get back. Even after I joined I used to log in with my user name instead of my email for years (I know, I know). and…
I was too scared to get my posts wrong or that my posts would not be considered hot by the community. Back then posts were ridiculously complicated with stacked sales prices, coupons, rebates, credit card rewards, price matching, somebody’s uploaded receipt and standing on one leg to get the deal. Very intimidating.
ETA: I’m going to update my info to include lurking!
