Why are the numbers of replies always so much smaller than the views?

I realize everybody isn't going to post but most of them are barely 1% of the total views on the larger threads.

You'd think it would be much higher.

We live among terrified sheep. Even being an anonymous coward isn't enough for most of them.

That and people click on a post multiple times to read the updates within.

That's terrifying to think about, if true.

People are too lazy to reply.

Idk about them being too "terrified" to post, that sounds a bit stupid.

Usually they're checking to see what the new replies are, and normally seeing if there's anything they want to comment on - and if they have commented, if there's responses to anything they might have said in the thread earlier.

Or is that just me? 1dunno1

I click on every single thread and try to read most of the replies. I do rather seldom make a reply, but it is not usually because of lack of interest. By reading the replies, I get a sense of the topics possible turns, and am quite often rewarded by being correct as to the tenor of the replies. Lately though, I have seen a very hostile expanse in the replies that not only have little or nothing to do with the actual thread, they are usually nothing more than personal attacks, carried by semi-literate morons (morans) that would be best answered by refusing to respond. Sometimes, I will return to the re-read threads to see if the attacks continued, or if it finally got past their bedtime, and adults were once again able to play in peace.

Re: Why are the numbers of replies always so much smaller than the views?
Reasons:
1: People click on the thread multiple times to catch up on new posts.
2: The majority rather wants to read, than post.
3: Shills looking for potential posts to "debunk" and move from thread to thread searching for the perfect victim.
