I've notice since I've been a member that we get alot of new members that never post. Why would you become a member and never post? Beats the hell out of me why. I joined cause I wanted to belong to a felloship of gardeners and farmers who have a passion for peppers. It took me less than a day to decide to join and even sooner to post an introduction. There was no brow beating for being new to this site in fact I made friends really fast by my standards and by talking to everyone everywhere I've gotten to know some pretty neat stuff that I would have never known just sitting there reading and not talking. You know even if your shy or paranoid you could at least reach out to one member that you feel safe with and PM till you fell like opening up to the crowd. I've never been neither so I guess I'll never know. I mean can you think of a good reason to run slient here? Are we that standoffish (Sorry dumb hillbilly can't spell)? I don't think so........do you?
