    Thread killer

    Well 9 threads today where I replayed to someone’s post and then the thread died! And a post I thought was interesting enough to put up and not one reply. Anyone else ever feel like the champion thread killer?

    Some start pretty nutty and you just know that they aren’t getting any more reasonable as time passes.

    Threads have to Stay Dead for a while before you can claim Thread Killer. Even then someone can drag it up years later and blow your title. LOL

    Don’t look at it as killing a thread; look at it as completing a thread. Once you’ve added your input, there’s really nothing left for anyone else to say.

    There, now I’ve completed this thread. It’s done. Nobody else post now.

    This might be the best way to view a thread that comes to a screeching halt.
    You put the cherry on the top of the conversation!

    Yep. I'm a thread killer too.

    Everyone needs a good rationalization, and that one is a humdinger! I can rest easy now.

    There is also a point is some threads where you can tell the thread is headed south. At that point, I unsubscribe from notices and leave it to die a negligent death.

    I believe the number is 3 on threads that didn't die after my comment but were closed.
