collective nouns: a ______ of lurkers
An imaginary audience of lurkers?

Who even made the rule that we cannot group ducks and fish together for the simple reason that they are both aquatic? If I want to group them that way and it serves my purpose then I can jolly well do it however I want to and it is still a nested hierarchy and you can't tell me that it's not.

Thoughts when I read this: 1. Interesting and kind of funny. 2. Wow, some of these are weird. 3. OK, this is a joke. 4. Wikipedia has the same list, must be true then.

Fake ETA: I'd go with "a pitying of lurkers"
