    I mean, have you ever gone through a spell where it seems like half the threads you post to die afterward?

    Sometimes I post to what I think is an interesting thread and come back days or weeks later and there is my lonely post, the last in the thread, all alone waiting for a reply. Am I the only one?

    LOL yeah, not yet. But eventually it will die, I suppose.

    It happens to me. I am a success at doing that. Sometimes, I am lucky that peeps like what I say. But I am not really here for people to like what I say though. I just offer a perspective and some humor. Life is too short without perspectives and humor.

    Sometimes it's difficult being the smartest one in the room, I guess. :wink:

    Most the time I just say what I think or feel at the moment and move on. Some threads I return to, a lot I don't - hit and run posting. But there are times that even I read the last post that someone else wrote and think there is no way I can respond to that.

    I am good at killing threads too...

    Threadicide?

    Am I supposed to turn the lights off when I do that?

    I think you are just imagining it. Sometimes I feel that way also. Sometimes I am late the thread or I thought about it for a while before posting, so by the time I post everyone else already contributed what they had to say.

    Another term for "killing a thread" is "having the last word".

    Oh Honey123!!!

    You're not alone!!! I feel exactly the same!
    I've only just started using the 'subscribe to threads' function and thought I'd broken it cos it never had a new post in it!!! :redface:

    I've killed so many, it's pretty bad! :frown1:

    Totally agree sir... what would we do without humour :eek:



    That's a really good point, honey. Sometimes there just isn't any way you can respond to some posts. But I try not to do that with mine! :rolleyes:



    :lmao: Love it!!!
    I am TERRIBLE for having the last word!

    Thx for the positive outlook on my thread killing skills! :biggrin1:

    Thanks guys you have lifted the cloud of doom

    Cheers

    Thanks for your input people. Glad to know I'm not alone in having the last word on a thread.
