Ever feel like posting in a thread is likely to be the kiss of death for that thread? Ever find yourself looking at threads hoping to see that someone went to one of your posts and instead find yourself disappointed that a bunch of other people have posted after you and no one has even commented on what you said? Do you ever just feel like everyone must have you set to ignore because your posts seem like they're invisible to others?

I can't be the only one, so come on in!

But the big question is... who ends up killing this thread? They should get an award. But in order to award the award someone would have to comment, and then that first person wouldn't be the thread killer anymore. Thread killer is a thankless job.

I'm laughing out loud at your comment rhiOrion!

I'm glad I'm not the only one who feels this way!

I'm sure there are more of us out there, right?

I take it as a badge of accomplishment. it means the OP got the answers they needed. I mean that when I am the last post. the other part about not being quoted only bugs me when it is something I am passionate about. But, I am occasionally vindicated with a so I live....

Yes, I've felt like this quite a bit. One time there was a thread, "Say something nice about the person above you". It was going along nicely, and then the person who posted after me basically asked for someone to say something nice about her, but she just ignored me completely. It was really dumb, but I was extremely hurt by that.
