Is the term lurker still in use for someone who reads a forum but doesn't post there? I haven't seen anyone use it in a long time on any forum.

It is now commonly thought to refer to someone whose mere presence on a forum graces it with style and substance.

So yes, the meaning has changed.

It is still used in it's original definition on most sites.

Obviously we're not most sites.

Here it still means "taint sniffing jizz lover".
