I definitely need some irl friends.  But online friends would be nice too.  In addition to invisible, I also feel isolated and alone.  It sucks.

I do too! Only in my case there are no AP moms close by -- they all live in wealthier neighborhoods that we can't afford or in neighborhoods that we wouldn't feel safe in (and still probably couldn't afford, ironically, since Berkeley is not only expensive but also high crime, lol).

I felt like this many times, but it got a little better. Now, there are a few people who notice, but I don't post as much as I did a few years ago. I remember giving my opinion or advice on something I knew about, and being totally ignored. I don't think it's on purpose, though.

 

The thing is, Mothering forums is so huge that it is way easy to fall between the cracks. I guess this thread is a sort of "fall between the cracks people" thread.

Invisible poster here. I have almost stopped posting altogether now because its so disheartening to never get recognized! Maybe I'm just too bland, not showing any personality in my posts.

Sometimes you have to use humor to keep from crying.

Thanks, heyxxmcfly! I can't take credit for creativity- it's from TS Eliot's Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats. I used to read those poems to my daughters smile.gif

This fits me perfectly!

 

I like to put a positive spin on the threads I've killed.  I take it as my reply was so perfectly written and every argument so eloquently worded that no one else felt the need to contribute and left my post there in all it's glory.

Seriously, I haven't posted in years it seems. I remember what an incredible place it used to be. Wow. Time marches on. <3


I did get a flutter of excitement when I saw the thread update.

Yep. Lots of threads I enjoy following, but figure if I post it's all over .
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 .
Does anyone remember that thread? Greatest ever in my history of mdc~ and that's a whole lotta history

So glad to know it isnt just me-I've lost track of the number of times I am the last person to post on a thread, just when the discussion is becoming really interesting it seems-everyone vanishes. I try not to take it personally.
