i think it is cause at least your brain is partially alive and focused on (relatively) relevant things, no?! ... of course, never been much of a lurker myself so i'm not sure what it entails! :-P
this is a thought provoking question. as a lover of tv (and a lurker) I feel much less worse sitting around and watching tv all day. For one thing, you pay for cable, so you should probably use it and for another thing, lurking in a sense is just an extreme form of being nosy. Not that there is anything wrong with this, I think that they are both just kind of mindless. However, I will say that I have had some pretty thought provoking moments/conversations about tv shows and the only thing that has ever come out of lurking is gossip and an intense knowledge of celebrities.
