Posters don’t hobby

There’s a very interesting discussion over on Chevalier’s blog.  Y’all should check it out.  It looks like the conversation is crossing three blogs now – Chevalier, Inspired to Blog and Mamasan Speaks. 

Some thought-provoking blogs and comments.  Most people have already said everything I was thinking, except for one thing.

The Mamasan said this in a comment:

The ladies have a saying, “The guy who posts the most will hobby the least” so there is certainly a wide difference between posters and clients.

True, I’ve heard that saying myself.  Even used it a time or two on the backchannels.  In the broader sense, it’s an accurate observation.  However, it doesn’t hold true when applied to the CC market.

Let’s just look at the fellows who have stated in public they’ve enjoyed some quality time with me.  Rjdiner, CCsugardaddy, Bull149.  All three familiar Corpus posters.  Lickalotapus probably gets more nookie than I do.  SPHunter gets laid more often than any two providers you care to name.  XxSaviorxX plays, we’ve seen the reviews. 

Point being, while I agree that even in Corpus most business comes from lurkers or guys with three posts, unlike every other city board, Corpus posters are in the game for the game itself.  Not just talking about the game on an internet message board.

Any thoughts on why Corpus seems to be the exception? 

Now that I’m thinking of it, Corpus is an exception in another area as well.  OUR Co-Ed board isn’t full of assholes.  We must have the best-behaved, least-drama Co-Ed on all of Eccie, and we’re blissfully ignorant of the “us vs them” hobbyist/provider spite fest going on all over the rest of the site.   Correlation?  

But why?
