Can I still use the word "lurk?"

Do people still use the word "lurk" to follow an online game without playing?

I'm currently running an LJ game, and have the "Instructions for Lurkers" linked from the User Info page. However, I have people friending the LJ without following the aforementioned instructions. Not that this is a bad thing; I'm just wondering if the term "lurker" might be unfamiliar to those out in LJ land, and, if so, should I change it to something else ("if you'd like to follow the game but not play" or something)?
