It seems like every time I post, a thread stops. In SYW, in OP...wondering if I have cooties or something.:(

MaryMumsy
12-31-2008, 03:23 AM
Nope, I am. Lost count of how many threads I've killed since I got here. At first I was worried that no one liked me. Then I didn't care any more.

If the thread dies just because I post in it, then it needed a quick and painless death, anyway.

At least, that's what I tell myself...

Alright guys, don't leave me hanging.

Guys?

Hello?

Sheeesh.

Oh poor Sherry!

No, you're not a threadkiller. But as a hint, start a thread like the kind Rob starts("Last movie you saw topless") and bingo! You will get many replies.

Our Sherry might be selling herself short here. Maybe her posts are so profound, her counsel so all encompassing and sublime, that she covers all of the bases in one fell swoop and leaves no room for any of us to offer our inferior opinions lest we shame ourselves under the weight of her boundless wisdom.

When that happens, threads don't die; they live on in an eternal rapture as if the final post were an exclamation point in The Book of Life!

Uh huh.

Killed a lot of threads, huh SK?
Yeah, but I tell myself, over and over, when I murder threads that my sterling opinions upon the matter are so beyond reproach that no one else could possibly have anything useful to say, so the topic, in essence, has been concluded on a fine note, and it's time to move on to other discussions.

And if I lock this thread now, I'd be proving my point. ;)

Ken
12-31-2008, 05:39 AM
I'm partially to blame, Sherry :e2bummed:
You posted a thread in the Comedy forum, a few weeks back, about writing SYW essays. I really wanted to participate, as I mentioned in a post, but for the life of me could not think of anything to write about on the subjects of "taxes and death." Good subjects to be sure, but just drew blanks for me :-(

Silver King
12-31-2008, 05:50 AM
I'm partially to blame, Sherry...
I shoulda known Ken had something to do with this!

We should change this thread title to: Am I a Thread Killer, or is Ken to Blame?

SherryTex
12-31-2008, 05:57 AM
I didn't really want a pity party, it's just lately, I post and there've been butkus as response. So it started making me wonder...and I also thought it would be a good laugh if no one responded.

Fenika
12-31-2008, 06:00 AM
I think it's hilarious that this thread is hovering around the Am I a Bread Killer thread in the new posts field. Sadly, that one has similar views but more replies. You might be onto something Sherry ;)

Seen any firebirds lately? Tis bad luck you know.

Yes. That's how I feel about my threadkilling, too.

Lock thread.

Haggis.

Wrong answer. Senility must be setting in ;)

Shadow_Ferret
12-31-2008, 07:21 PM
What thread are we talking about? The Old Farts Thread? Haggis started that. I didn't appear until page 2.

Kitrianna
12-31-2008, 07:23 PM
*goes and checks to be sure* But I'm almost positive that was your rant at the beginning, SF.

Shadow_Ferret
12-31-2008, 07:32 PM
Nope. Sorry. That was all Haggis. You want me to raise it up for you? I have it subscribed.

Kitrianna
12-31-2008, 07:33 PM
Ok, so it was Haggis. I must have mixed up his rant in the Old Fart's thread (which you contributed a bunch to) with your rant in the Ferret's Freedom from LOLCatz thread.

Shadow_Ferret
12-31-2008, 07:34 PM
OK.

Or do you suppose that's too risque?

Silver King

You're right. It might be good for a laugh (it's already worked for me!), but in the short run, Sherry might not approve.

I'll think of something else, a sort of ever-changing thread title that lures more and more views. This way, Sherry won't be able to kill this thread, no matter how hard she tries!

When that happens, threads don't die; they live on in an eternal rapture as if the final post were an exclamation point in The Book of Life!

You said it. So what if you kill threads? Many of us have done so once in a while. Just because people don't respond, doesn't mean they are not reading/listening/understanding. Sometimes people leave us speechless, and if you can't shuffle in a word or two, it doesn't mean no harm. Like SK said - threads live on - more so the thought behind the words, in us. :Hug2: *huggles*
