by missy » Apr 16, 2018 So just reading a thread here this morning made me think of this question. Over the years reading posts here I see there are a number of people who describe themselves as "lurkers" and then for whatever reason they start posting. I know for many the reason is they need advice on a diamond or gemstone or other piece of bling. So they start posting. Others (like me) just dive right in and start asking questions and learn as they go. Other posters are more thoughtful and deliberate before they first start posting here. And some stay but others come for info and then leave or just continue lurking. Please share your PS beginning and PS "story" here. What made you decide to start posting and what made you decide to stay. And if you took a "break" why did you take that break and why did you return?
