Why does everyone

    mega1posted 7 years ago

    stop posting as soon as I come on a thread?  either that or they just pretend I'm not there!  Does this ever happen to you?  Am I being shunned or just paranoid?  Should I move to Brazil?  Seriously . . . and DON'T YELL!

      lol--My husband and I were just talking last night about how we tend to kill threads when we post...big_smile  Tom told me this morning, "Well, just killed another one!"  We always just laugh about it. smile

      It does tend to make you feel a tad shunned and/or paranoid, doesn't it? big_smile big_smile big_smile

      LOL, that happens to me all the time. I've dubbed myself the "Thread Killer".  I can even start them, and they die. If the threads don't die, then any contribution I make gets ignored.

      Maybe it's that you have something good and helpful to say, and don't want to just banter. Hugs to you for that.

      No need to go to Brazil, and no need to feel paranoid. The forums are, well, what they are.

      HEY MEGA  !! lol

      Nobody kills a thread. For a lot of different reasons, people posting have to leave ,and that makes you believe they're leaving you. But that's not so.
      A lot of times posts end with me. I don't find anything  annoying or relevant when it happens. I just move on and post somewhere else !

    I even had a few instances where someone told me to go home because I wasn't 'a part' of their conversation. Apparently, wasn't serious enough for some silly topic that has been beaten to death here. D:

    Maybe I need to start offending people more.

    I think everyone thinks they kill the threads. Face it, someone has to be the last one to post in a thread, and many times it will be you.

    So after a few times you end up the last one you start to think your a thread killer! I know there are a lot of threads on here where I'm the last one.

    Don't think of it as killing a thread, think of it as having the last word! wink

      I just figure my comment is so astounding that people can't think of anything else to add.

      It's either that, or I just wait -- thinking things over-- so long, that everyone else has moved on to the next subject.

        yep, that's it Rochelle.  I've noticed you always get to the thread late - when everyone has already said everything , BUT then you find something new and completely valid and astounding to say, and everyone is just, you know, blown away!

        that's what happens to you - but not me - to me, its like, I even start a freakin TRIBE for god's sake and get shunned in my own TRIBE!  people just chatting away ignoring me like I never came in.  and then they get UPSET if I start YELLING!

    Springboardposted 7 years ago

    It's got to be the timing. I'm sure many here have posted a brand new hub, for example, saw nothing in the way of any real activity initially, and then BOOM! The scales tip. Hubbers, themselves, sometimes have a lot of catching up to do as well. It can be quite a task at times getting new hubs up and running (and some have blogs to manage too), keeping tabs on hubber you follow and going back to continue conversations you've had in a thread, or check on comments you made in others hubs...

    Timing. And sometimes lack of time.

        Your little finger is crooked, not crocked!  LOOK at it!  when you were about 5 that little boy who used to tease you took hold of it and bent it!

        Blue is blue because it doesn't know how to be red or green or yellow!

        I did that 752 times!  and then I learned to type!

        Look in your sock drawer!

        I said SHE said that about him because she is a pervert and would have said it if she had thought of it!

          What you said SHE said about him makes perfect sense even if she only thought about saying it.

          Does it make anymore sense now?

            It makes little sense-- but I do have a hub explaining  how to remedy the sock problem.

    I can understand the need for 4 bathrooms, though . . .


    don't go anywhere - I'm coming back after dinner!  really.

    Mega you are in Sonoma Country, right?  How far are you from the ocean?  How far are you from Sacramento.  Trying to get a picture of how long it will take me to get to the ocean on a weekly basis. smile

      From where I live, driving slow in an old car, I get to Bodega Bay in about 45 minutes, which is not bad.  It's only about 30 miles but you can't drive too fast.  This is near Santa Rosa where I live.   From Sacramento I think it's about an hour, maybe an hour and 15 min. We go to Bodega or Marshall often.  And I often go to Bolinas in Marin Co.  There are incredible beaches - sometimes we go up to Mendocino but that's about 2.5 hrs from here.  Also close to Napa and so many vineyards its incredible.  Are you moving to this area?  There are some very good real estate buys right now.

    Moving to Brazil would be a good thing. I lived there for six months in Sao Paulo and absolutely loved it. I"m thinking to go back, this time for longer term. You were joking I think, but it's a truly wonderful place.

      No - whenever I think of running away I think of Tahiti (which is getting too overcrowded and touristy and probably has a McDonalds or two now)  and Brazil, where friends of my have gone and because I think I would like to lose, like, 50 pounds and learn how to tango - I would also go to Argentina and tango around there too!  I don't know what I'm going to use for money, will have to think of something.  big_smile:
