Yes, some Lenovo employees do read and post to this forum. Mark is quite active, and several others post as well. In addition, there are lurkers who just read without making public comments although sometimes they ask the mod team to either gather more information or pass along advice.
However, here are the expectations of their participation from the Welcome message:
These communities have been created to provide a high quality atmosphere in which users of Lenovo products and services may share experiences and expertise. While members from Lenovo may participate at intervals to engage in the discussions and offer advice and suggestions, this forum is not designed as a dedicated and staffed support channel.
The bottom line is there's no guarantee that you will get an answer to a question here directly from Lenovo.
