Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
" Lurkers. I believe most long term lurkers remain because of the content. But ET can be a forbidding place in its intellectual intensity, and make it hard for some to join in. I doubt if we can do anything about that. Changing the look and feel of the site is not going to influence them."

Yes, we retarded lurkers can't stand your intellectual heat.  So how's that ego doing?

They tried to assimilate me. They failed.

A number of people have written (either on occasional psots here, or by email) to say they were intimidated by the existing content and did not feel they had anythign to add. We do encourage them to believe otherwise but, justified or not, it appears to be a reasonably widespread thing.

But the fight against complacency and arrogance is a neverending one.
