Thread: Do you at times feel as though you’re the “Thread Killer”?

  1. #1

    Default Do you at times feel as though you’re the “Thread Killer”?

    You know the last one to make a post in a thread and no one relies after your post! .... Yup, sometimes I feel that I'm the "Thread Killer"!

    I like to think of it as having provided a comprehensive reply to the OP such that no one else thinks they can add more to the excellent post that then ends up being the last reply.

    I should paste this in my signature, or the place that a lot of folks list what light they own! I like that!

    yes. i do too.

    but most times its because im a bit too late to really join in the "real time reply chat".. and just end up repeating or recapping what others said. everyone else have said what they wanted to say before me so they dont come back anymore to reply to me.. or actually they find my response not worthy of replying to.. but i dont fret. i do still do alot of "no sense" stuff.

    Ah...I see what might happen here.....

    In the meantime we could discuss the topic - maybe we always want there to be a reply to the threads we post in, just to maintain the pretence of a conversation, human contact, answers to our questions etc. and if there are none - we feel that much more than the threads we post in and receive our answer.

    Therefore we only remember the unanswered questions, because they make us feel more alone or ignored. THAT'S IT! We always want a reply to feed our own self importance, to secure our place in history with an indelible (unless by moderator or forum glitch, natch) and public record of conversations and thoughts that can be read by all and sundry the world over. We exist because someone else has read our typed thoughts and chosen to respond. If no response, maybe we die a little inside and retreat into our shells a bit more. Right now I can remember many posts where I have had the last word - there is no triumph in those memories, only failiure.

    Should we add the following quote?

    "Last one out, turn off the lights."



    No, that would just be wrong.

    That's actually a very reasonable theory.

    I think electronic communications in general have a certain level of addictiveness built into their use, such that we get a tiny high off of others replying to us, via email, txt, post, tweet, etc. We crave that reply, and wait for it, like an addict waiting for a hit. But once we get it, we just want the next.

    Anyone who has been bored and sent a few txts to friends, only to wait forever for replies knows what I'm talking about. The ping! of your phone going off is the fix you want.

    We're all screwed up, guys.

    I'm sure you're right, and BTW, thank you for giving me my fix for the day - a quote included and a direct reply is 100% pure, you know, 'the good stuff'

    I'm off to bed while the going's good and the shakes have gone.

    Back tomorrow though!

    We have one "official" CPF Thread Killer.

    His name is Illum and when he posts . . . watch out!

    Sorry Bill, but it doesn't count when you use your moderator powers to lock a topic.

    I saw this thread shortly after it was OP'd and had no replies. And I resisted replying then because I thought others had already resisted.... because of how cool and befitting it would be if no one ever, ever replied to this thread. Oh well.

    Nope... I think I have the most thread kills - without actually closing the thread. I imagine it's because some all of a sudden think, "Aw crap... the boss is in this thread now... there goes the neighborhood!" ... I really can be a fun person, ya know... and I sometimes do actually add useful and/or at least amusing or OT information. I'm not ALL that bad... most of the time...

    How about when you post to a thread and everyone posts around you as if you never posted and your input was just ignored or dismissed?

    When in a good mood, it's like a party in here. When some idiot makes you angry, we know to check back quite a bit later.

    No worries . . . It's only because it takes some members awhile to figure out that the other dude with the user-name "Gene" actually isn't you.

    SORRY! I couldn't resist trying to start a "NO! I'm the Thread Killer" Thread. Mission accomplished though.
