Have you ever noticed the ratio of replies to views?.....seems lots of people view/read the topics, but only a small precentage contribute replies.

actually many times people who already made replies, like to check up and follow up on the topic they replied to, which would explain the number of views :D

That would account for some of it but take this topic for example...already 9 views, only 2 replies now!

If 3 people have given a good response in which I agree with, I usually won't post, but check back every once in a while. But I have noticed it is a very low ratio.
