    I must admit to being a NavList lurker, reading most messages daily, much like 
    the morning paper.  I feel at times as though many of you are old friends.  Happy 
    holidays to all . . .

    > I wouldn't call most of those thousands 'lurkers.' They're people who've 
    ended up on a NavList page while searching for something navigational, 
    astronomical, etc. They read one or two or even ten posts, get some benefit, 
    or not, and then they're gone and would probably never come back. There are 
    indeed plenty of true 'lurkers' who follow these discussions regularly but 
    never contribute. At my best guess, there are around 500 NavList lurkers.
