We do fit the 90-9-1 rule though I think.

Agree with the 90-9-1.

I think that the majority of people who lurk don't really have the time (or possibly inclination) to read through all threads to check for the questions they want to ask and are scared of appearing stupid when they do get round to asking a question.
