Is it just me or are there a lot of people who will create an account just to ask one question, then dissapear?

I know I'm not the most active, but I've seen people make an account and post one time, which I haven't seen since. I couldn't name people off, but I just thought it odd.

I wouldn't be surprised. Maybe they couldn't find the answer they were looking for using the search feature, maybe they didn't even try to search. They just wanted help and signed up to get it.

Yea, it happens. That's part of the reason people can't post links until they have 10 posts - it helps to thwart off would-be spammers.

Yes, there are hundreds of zero and one post members... look at the member link on the bar above, and click on posts, from low to high.... thousands.

Maybe they disappear because they run low on free memory. :D

In addition, just because they may have a low post count doesn't meant they don't frequent the site, maybe they find what they are looking for here without posting. There is a TON of information that can be found here.

All valid points. Just thought it was odd that they would post a question and seemingly dissapear. No thanks or posts about their BB experience. But as was said, that's to be expected, especially with a forum that seems to be heavily around support.

Wirelessly posted

I am a low poster - not below 10 mind. But I find I can get most of my info from just reading.
I did report one post for being spam but haven't heard back about it tho I doubt I will cos the mods are busy and will just have dealt with it?
Low post counts can mean happy campers.

You don't normally hear back on reported posts unless you ask a question like "Can I load OS 4.5 for the Bold on my 7100t", and then you will likely get a response.

I agree with jsconyers,
I have been coming to this site for a long time now (since I had my old 7520) and I come just about daily to read up on any new info, however I rarely post though. You guys are a wealth of information tho

I lurked for a good few months before I finally gathered up the courage to register once I got my 8800.

Now I've been sucked in and I can't go back!

Yea, but we saw you in the shadows, and left out some kitty treats each night.

I joined to not ask a question but to learn.

I learned a lot, so it was worth it. My BB is exactly the way I want, theme and all, thanks to you guys.
