Lurkers: Come out, come out, wherever you are

Mike Hewitt

A call to all of BFTB's "lurkers" that do not comment to join in the conversation.

There's nothing to write about today in the land of the San Diego Chargers.

That's okay, though! That just means that today is our one-a-year day to welcome lurkers with open arms to BFTB.

This little Chargers community gets about twice as many unique visitors to our site every day than we have registered members. Most of the people that meet me and say that love the blog aren't registered members. Heck, half of the writers I've hired in the last few weeks weren't registered members before I hired them.

REGISTER. Seriously, it will make your experience here about 20x better. The posts are great and all, but the comments are what makes BFTB the awesome community that it is.

Are there some jerks in the comments? Yes. Do you need to be afraid of them to the point of not registering/commenting? Not at all. This is an everyone-is-welcome community, even if your opinion is counter to everyone else's it should be heard.

So, here's what we do. Register here (it only takes a second). Then comment below and let us know who you are, where you're from and give us at least one opinion/prediction involving the Chargers.

Any regulars that are jerks to the new members will be BANNED (probably temporarily, but we might also forget to reinstate you).
