I left the January DDC after a few weeks because everyone on there already knew eachother from "The One Thread" and ignored me. I tried chiming in about other threads, but was ignored, or flat out didn't know what to say becuase everyone talked about things that only applied to them and their cliques. Everyone has inside jokes on there, some have even met in person. I started a thread introducing myself, but was ignored. It actually didn't offend me seriously- it's just a silly DDC on an online forum and I'm already friends with most of the members of my previous pregnancy, oh and real life friends- those too
But it got me thinking. WHAT EFF IS THE ONE THREAD? It sounds like The One Ring. Is it the one thread to rule them all, or something? Are the people in it more powerful than the rest of us?
Anyway, it's annoying that I don't even know what it is, and when I open it, it's just randomness. What club created this and why are some people in it and some people not? Are people excluded? WHY JOIN IN? Has this been an ongoing thing for 10 years and therefor, this is a completely novice thing to ask?
The most important question....Should I even care? Of course I shouldn't. But I can't help but be curious at this point since it's friggen everywhere on the boards and gets me the silent treatment, apparently. I get the feeling it's some kind of cool crowd or something?
