Okay, I acknowledge this could fit into the Venting or Rant threads that already exist, but I'm looking for more focused discussion on this topic. I didn't want to digress those threads too much if this sparks a lively discussion (which I hope it will)! Let me start by defining "Tourist" in the context of this post: Tourist [toor-ist] noun - an individual who registers with a site to gain access to the content restricted to members, but then typically does not contribute to the site. Is anybody else bothered by all the Tourists out there (on both SF and pretty much every other place online ever)? Is this just me letting something that is ultimately negligible get under my skin? I don't mind people looking around to get a feel before joining in, but for someone to register and then only take from a site and not contribute is irritating. Sites like SF require active participation to stay alive, relevant, and entertaining - if we all only browsed the photos/videos and never did anything to add to the site then it would surely die very quickly. And, no, posting five pictures of your genitals (or posting pictures you claim are yours, but that you stole from a different adult site) does not count as contribution! Contributing by my definition means actively taking part in the discussions available on the site. Contributing is to reach out to other members beyond, "Plz raet m dik ladees!" or "Wut U tink of ma pssy guys???" Contributing is being genuine in your posts and being yourself within the (reasonable) expectations of the community you have joined... If all you want is pornography then go to a pornographic website! If you don't want to pay - this is the 21st century; the Information Age! There are plenty of Free Content sites out there for you to browse - why bother with a site that does not have its central focus as pornographic content? Anyway, I'm interested to see peoples' thoughts on this. Agree. Disagree. Neither. Tourists are welcome to weigh in on this, too. I'd be very interested to get their opinion on the matter.
