Oh, me too! Me too! I'm kinda new so I feel like I"m trying to fit in and don't always know how. Mind, I started one thread that got quite a few responses, and I thought "They like me! They really like me!".

May I join? I've killed quite a few threads.
Often I'll join a thread, one one responds to my post, then someone else also joins the thread and everyone responds with a "Welcome to this thread!"

This totally where I belong too! I just gave up - 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!

Maybe we should have a contest, and see how many of our own threads have no responses (your own response doesn't count, lol!).

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!"

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.

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.

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.
