Taxonomically speaking, Lurkerids are actually a subgrouping (a subclass
perhaps) of the gottaclueids. The thing that distinguishes gottaclueids from
wannabeids is that the "gotties" recognize where they are lacking in knowledge,
and won't put out an unsupported hypothesis as a fact. This adaptive feature
makes gotties practically flame proof.
