How many groups are you a part of on CM?  How many of those groups do you just "lurk in" VS being an active participant? 

How do you decide when to leave a group?  What has caused you to leave a group in the past?

 I'm a member of 40-50 groups.  I post in 3 of them daily and 2 or 3 others a few times a week.  I'm not a lurker, if I go into a group to read posts, I also reply to them.

Im in 6 but one is dead lol. I only look at the posts in other groups that have been featured. But I usually comment.
I dont like the ones with too much drama or husband bashing.

I'm in a bunch of groups. At least 20, but maybe 30. I'm a regular poster in 2 groups. And about 4 other groups I read/post every now and again.

Right there with you on the too much drama - the groups that I deleted last night were either because of too much drama OR because they just don't have a lot of "action" in them....

I'm in about 30 groups, but only active in a handful of them. I sometimes lurk in some of the bigger CM drama groups for their entertainment value, but only if I'm really bored and in the right mood.

I belong to 14 groups, but only post w/ any regularity in 4 of them. Some of them are just pretty dead. Others are a little more active, but I only visit them once every 1-2 weeks. A couple of them were private groups that just kind-of fizzled out. None of us have left them, we just all gradually stopped going there as we moved to a private group on FB.

 15 maybe.  I'm active in about 7 or 8.  If I don't go into a group for awhile, or haven't had anything to add, then I'll leave.  I have left over drama before.  Just dont need that in my life. :)

I was in four groups but now I am only in two. The main reason is there were men posting anonymously on the site and they even owned up to doing it to see if women would post pictures of themselves in their undergarments. If you are a member of In the Bedroom be careful of posting.
