I love how you think! I enjoy getting the last word in, heh heh! Maybe we're thread killers because everyone reads our sagacious comments and are like, 'WOW, they're SO RIGHT! I may as well not even respond because of the brilliance of their comment would shadow anything else I could say!"

it's like I can respond to a thread and get no response or acknowlegement that I even exist then someone can come along and post almost the same response and they get all kinds of responses! I am glad to know I am not the only one though!
Yeah, I am a threadkiller sometimes but mostly I am the invisible poster. I am becoming more and more of a lurker b/c of it. Glad to know I'm not the only one to feel this way.

btw, jalilah, welcome to the thread!

I'm definitely an invisable poster. I have been a member since 2004... was quite active until 2 years ago and then lost my computer for awhile (due to it crashing and just not having the resources to get a new or really a need to until this past winter) and have recently become somewhat active again.... but I guess because no one knows me anymore, they don't respond and thus, I am invisable. I posted a serious, urgent question last week and got precisely one answer... kind of bummed me out.

Aw Thanks Mama! I posted on this one before I did on the cannabis one I think, lol... it seems to be getting better though. Maybe I'm too impatient, lol.

Wow, coming back to find that this thread died. I believe that means that Attached2Elijah gets a cape.
I'm going to give this thread CPR. I killed a number of threads recently so I'm feeling very invisible today. bag.gif Come back thread killer mamas

I seem to feel invisible a lot. Been on Mothering for several years and have been slowly trying to be more active.  But a lot of time I just don.t know what to say. Anyone else got that problem?

Same here.  And there's the always pleasant feeling of being completely ignored.

It's like I've found my people. (Now if no one replies to you on the thread killer tribe, you know it's not just you).

I thought we weren't supposed to have anymore of these "threadkiller" threads?

 

post #112 of 203

I think that should win an awars. Are we afraid to carry on?

I just wanted to mention that many of you have made posts that have made me nod in agreement, or that have prompted me to respond, but I might not have directly referenced you.  Now that I think about it, it's possible that other people are doing the same with my posts.  I often make really long posts, and I think about what I'm putting in them for a while before I post.  I think those are my problems - the posts are too long for busy mamas to read, and by the time I think out what I want to post everyone else is already finished with the thread.  Also, perhaps, the things I say are considered useless.

 

I know in other forums the people that feel like thread-killers are often the ones who have really summed up all that can be said about a topic, in my opinion.  They say everything I could think of to say (and better), and so I don't need to respond.  I know at least a few of you on this thread are that same category for me.

 

I've also wondered if it might be my profile picture . . . I have been told it's disturbing . . . not my intent, but I suppose if that were the consensus it would scare people away.

 

Anyway, I'm glad this thread exists, it makes me feel better, especially because I can see how wrong you all are to be so insecure!  And if you're all wrong (and I think you are), then I probably am too.

Hmmm, I remember these days.

I'm a thread killer too!

Nah, I'll be the killer.  Or, no one will quote me!  

 

Btwn:  Glad you posted this OP.  Sometimes I come here and feel like a total alien (even though I've been posting here for four years and have now reached senior member status...awesome!).  Like any other thing in life, however, I think that people make friends and contacts and tend to quote the people and  friends that they are familiar with or who have the same philosophical stand.

 

I feel so random.  whistling.gif

I agree with all of this!  By the way, your profile pic looks very Bacon-like and I can't put my finger on it.  I have a tendency to be long-winded too.  I come here a lot but I don't post with the frequency that others do.  Usually when I post, it is something that I feel passionate about and I go on and on.  I'm sure it either turns people off or they just don't have time.

Yep, same here. I often feel like I should apologize for being too into something or for my writing being so long just in case.

Noooooo! I came to find this thread thinking that it is exactly fitting for me (lol) only to find that it "died" 2 months ago! Let's bring it back!!
