Cowslip...methinks you are over analysing us!
Because we comment regularly or not so regularly doesn't necessarily reflect the spare time we have, or whether we work or not or if we spend all day on the computer. this reminds me of my mum......the news is on, could be something very important, yet she will comment on the newscaster's tie...? The main point is missed.
for me the forum is a virtual friendship, a sharing of common interests and a way of learning more about my passion for gardening.
I have an iPad and at meal times or other occasional times I turn it on to read my electronic newspaper, catch up with the forum, catch up,with emails, etc. etc. I guess I'm one of the "regular contributors" but I am a pretty busy guy. I wont elaborate as to why or how I am busy as it is not really necessary.
suffice to say, many people join the forum...as I did.....out of curiosity initially. I found I enjoyed it and enjoyed "talking" to the other members and it has become an enjoyable habit.
it doesn't take long to make a comment here. Most of us comment whilst doing something else.
if we as "regular contributors" start to feel uncomfortable because of such a description it would spoil the forum for us and we would no longer participate.
Come on Cowslip. Less analysis
