I was thinking more of the Cornish usage. They use the word "visitor" for "tourist". Well thinking about it, perhaps that's not too different from Mmario's usage either.

Moon baby, I was kind of agreeing with you. You are right, the word "lurker" is nasty, and people who are new to the web may not know that it is in common use. I don't think it's too big a deal, but should we talk about these folk, we don't want to use language that is going to scare them away. Of course it COMPLETELY spoils my verse to The Mudcat Tavern
