Where does the term come from Mage?
Lurkers are the poor homeless people who live in "Down below"
Mage, hmmm...I watched Babylon 5 live from the first showing of the pilot and through each season (and back to back with DS9 during the years they overlapped in Syndication). Probably joined online BBS in mid-S3. I don't recall ever seeing Lurkers being used to identify a B5 fan.
Though, I suppose it makes sense, and I simply missed it, since the biggest online B5 resource out there was called "The Lurker's Guide"

Where are we going? And why are we in this Handbasket?
