You're probably right in some respects. But you can't shoot all the time.
Sometimes in other, ahem, aspects of life, people who talk about it the most do it the least. There will be all kinds of shooters here. Busy professionals who may post half a dozen messages in a day just because it's a quiet business week, totally obsessed gear nuts & pixel peepers, and plain happy as hell photography enthusiasts who just love to share a viewpoint, plus deeply experienced shooters who truly value the opportunity to flow back. And of course there are those few insecure, troublesome trolls.
Photography can be a fairly isolated profession in terms of contact with industry peers. Boards like this have to a great extent replaced the conversations we used to have down at the E6 film lab, somewhere you'd often go to once or twice a day. The five minute conversations with other photographers there was pure gold. That's gone but we still need those conversations. It's places like this and any number of other great boards where those conversations happen in 2012.
