Caught in the act! I read your blog from time to time, but I don't comment. I'm not sure how to do comment/work the word verification, but here goes.

Pity that there are those who must put other people down in order to make themselves feel better.

P.S. I don't have a blog of my own, but I love reading yours.

Lurking happens. It is anonymous and does no harm. Only a small, small person would lurk and then gossip.

Did something happen that spurred this? Lurking, is a common thing on the inter-web-er-net, but rarely does the gossip actually return to someone.

Judaism considers gossip (known in Hebrew as lashon hara) as a sin. Speaking negatively about people, even if retelling true facts, counts as sinful, as it demeans the dignity of man — both the speaker and the subject of the gossip.

According to Wikipedia there are several types of "lurkers." In fact there are seven types of lurkers. I highly recommend using wikipedia for all needs. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lurker

To read someone else's blog without commenting is fine.

To read someone else's blog and leave a nice comment is divine.

To read someone else's blog and then use what was read to backbite with a third party is to feed an undernourished ego.
