Are you a pigeon poster?

A pigeon poster is someone who swoops into a thread, drops their opinion and flies away never to be seen on said thread again.

Or do you like to keep checking back?

Or are you compulsive to the point where you keep checking back even though you've lost interest?

A little of each. Depends on the topic.

I will probably not check back on this topic again.

I put other, because it depends. If it's something I have a stronger feeling about, I'll stick around and reply to others ect. If it's just plainy informational or poll ect. I usually just post and move on. On the CB, I usually stick around

Sometimes a thread just gets so annoying that I unsubscribe (Sister's Wedding "Issues" is getting there! ).

Those are the ones were I become compulsive. I can't stop from looking at a train wreck! Though when it gets that to level, I am usually just lurking not posting.

Depends.

When I'm in the trip planning forums, I'm usually a pigeon poster. In the CB, it's a little different. I try to follow up on posts but sometimes I'm not able to, due to my schedule.
