I realize part of why I get ignored sometimes or kill threads is I often post on threads where I have strong opposing ideals to most of the posts. I get a little argumentative on-line.

Yes, well.. I thought the idea of a forum is supposed to be an exchange of ideas. Instead, everyone comes online to find 40 people who agree with them and then they freak out when a couple don't.

Yep. Lots of threads I enjoy following, but figure if I post it's all over :lol.

Seriously, it is amazing~ my post count. I am invisible, and and a serial threadkiller. I can only remeber one thread in my history here that I was truly *not* invisible, not counting my ddcs. It was the Creepy Grave thread started by Red and we ended up talking candy and treats while we were awaiting updates :lol.

Hah! Well I recently quit lurking and joined this site, but I'm a chronic threadkiller as well, so I'm bringin' this one back, just to save someone else from that fate! Peace, y'all! :D

I once took a very long time going through about ten years back on an old Mothering article about eczema to help a mom who started an eczema thread. Then I took the time to type out the cliff notes version of the article. It was a lot of work and I was totally ignored! I couldn't believe it. I just couldn't bite my tongue on that one. I actually went back to thread and said hey I put a lot of time into helping you and you didn't even acknowledge me. I got a response after that....................

One reason why I haven't been posting as much lately is because I was feeling completely ignored. It gets old after a while when you post and post and practically nothing is acknowledged.

I personally like opposing views, as long as they don't involve personal attacks on others. I have been on websites where opposing views were freely expressed, and I learned much about topics I had never heard of. Unfortunately, the one that did that the most, eventually degenerated into only one view being acceptable (consequence was being jumped on by others in the thread, mod censure, etc.). I left that place, eventually.

it would be nice, I like a good debate. But it is hard to be proven wrong. If someone proves me wong I go sulk. :)
