messaging, jargon The activity of one of the "silent
majority" in a electronic forum such as Usenet; posting
occasionally or not at all but reading the group's postings
regularly. This term is not pejorative and indeed is casually
used reflexively: "Oh, I'm just lurking". Often used in "the
lurkers", the hypothetical audience for the group's
flamage-emitting regulars.
