I don't think anyone wishes to see you vanish into obscurity. Besides,
lurking is highly over-rated.
How about this idea instead: Try banishing all cynicism from your life.
Admittedly, this will be a challenge for a guy with the last name of
"Grouchy". Much like "Shorty" or "Slim", a name can shape a person's
formation. You wouldn't have it much worse if your name was David Michael
Jerk/Grumpy/Meany, so yours is definitely an up-hill battle.
Perhaps it would be helpful if you chose a new last name altogether. How
about David Michael
Cheerful/Jolly/Gracious/Friendly/Pollyanna/Goofy/Blessing. That's it:
"Blessing.". I know a guy here in town who's name is "Michael Blessing".
He's super nice (go figure), and I know he won't mind sharing his name with
All the forums I have participated in over the past 6 years have really
taken their toll on me. I have less faith in humanity and have become
more reactionary. This doesn't help anyone, and evidence shows it has
caused some harm. So consider this my formal announcement that I have
become a lurker.
