Inactive loggers

What's up with members who join a group and then don't participate in logging or comments. Isn't the whole idea to be an active participating member of your group?

Personally I believe that too many pt members want to be coddled. There are many that do not have the initiative that they should have. This tends to cause those of us that do take it seriously to get frustrated. Too many excuses.

Thanks for your input

Wow Thanks for your info and comments. I am a new member and I can now join a better group knowing that.

A lot of people join a group (or more than one) on their first visit to PT, and then never log in again for whatever reason. It takes a whole week for the system to kick them out of the groups -- and the worst thing is to have 3 or 4 of these "no-shows" in a row cycle through a spot in an otherwise active group.

I used to belong to 3 groups which used to be pretty active. Then for the last few months, I was the only one logging regularly in all 3 groups. I was getting tired of it and left all groups. It is so demoralizing to be the only one logging day after day. I miss the interaction among group members but afraid to join a new group and end up in the same situation again. I would browse the groups and check out the ones that seem interesting, only to find the last comment made over a week ago and nearly all the logs empty. So depressing.
