Why isn't everyone posting?

Some of us are lurking. Some of us respond only to topics that pique our
interest. Some of us have limited amounts of time to spend reading e-mail.
All of us are interested in technical writing.

We are at different levels of knowledge and experience. Not all topics are
interesting to everyone. When there's a lull, there just hasn't been a
recent topic that excites everyone's interest.

Also, every time people on the list indulge in snobbery, put-downs, flame
wars, and the like, the disgusted go off somewhere else for a while.


P.S. You also get better responses when you post with a topic.
