Haha! I totally forgot about that post! I was pretty buzzed and someone from the office was telling me about how she/he would come regularly to FB but just as an observer... So just called that person out, I obviously failed at getting them to post and apparently scared others.... Definitely not the intention :(

You know who you are, you just brought this post to my attention, now you need to post, no more silent observer crap!

Did P1 basically killed the responses? Look at the upvotes tho!

Hello everyone, I know someone looking for some perspective, so I’m taking a poll. Would you:
