Another full-time lurker here answering to the call!

What Liina wrote was almost exactly what I was planning to write, so 
instead I'll just copy it. :)

And a point of my own to add: since I subscribe to the digest mode of 
the list, if I for once have a fine enough point to make, the opinion 
is very often already been expressed by someone else.

Nowadays I'm even more of a lurker since I have to jump over and save 
all the Game-related posts. I'm still clinging to my plan of saving 
some money by getting the book from either Vancouver in June or London 
(yay!) in August.
