If Chuck and Trav shotgun a couple tallboys, we are LURKED. If Chuck and Trav roast a bowl of the Nor-cal purple frost, we are LURKED. If Chuck and Trav creel some prime shard and torch it, we are LURKED. Comprende, amigo? Good. Now bail.
"Squirty! Come to the Red Room! Me and Chuck are fuckin lurked out. Not a lot of choice puss, but I think we're gonna show some slugs how the west side rips."

To read without commenting or contributing, therefore effectively invisible to the rest of the group or community. Generally recommended for joining any forum so that you can observe rules, attitudes and prominent personalities without jumping in and breaking a rule, making an ass of yourself, or asking a question about something obvious that you would have learned for yourself if you’d paid attention in the first place.

Online equivalent of attentive listening before speaking; potentially the solution to all Internet faux pas.
That board will rip you a new one if you don't lurk before posting, man.

Lurk moar, n00b.

The act of being with a group of people but not saying much. Usually these people (who don't say much) are totally happy with that fact and they just like to listen and don't feel the need to be the center of attention.
That kid is lurking, but he is a lot of fun outside of class.
