Good to know you're here. We're a bunch of worry-warts around here - when we don't hear from folks, we get concerned.
I know, I sometimes have to remind myself that reading, nodding and smiling (or whispering a prayer) gets no further than the screen as far as a poster is concerned . . . . I need to post something for them to know I'm there. So when someone says, "where is everybody?" I have to say, "oops - mea culpa. Sorry you didn't see the silent, invisible rabbit in the corner over here."
