    My question, as we stand on the awful brink of another Monday, is this.
    What tactics does our forum queen (all hail Beth) use that makes her forum threads so wildly interactive and popular. It is a tactic we can all learn from in my opinion. Few others rouse the masses with such incredibly fast replies and vast numbers of comments. Preferably the Queen her self should comment here. As it is a thread regarding her technique. I kid you not, I am fascinated.

    Maybe she does not want to reveal her secret.

    Ugh, I know it said not to comment, but ppl barely tolerate me now. I think if they hear any more of that queen stuff they'll be getting their torches and pitchforks.

      Perhaps they are sharpening them now? Your ravid readers want to know. what kind of magic you possess to start such viciously, commented forums.

        Im pretty sure they're no different than anyone else's. I like ppl's stories, so I post more questions about getting to know ppl... I don't know anything about seo or panda or penguin. We all post our interests I spose.

        (I think you meant *avid readers, which if you look at my stats, you'll see I have none. lol)

            Rabid, avid = ravid, so I spose it was correct after all.

        So with the Arthritis comment and the Cheap Trick name... I would guess you are 40-50 years old?
        I can't help it... I always have to solve a mystery.

                I know a troll when I see one. Maybe the reason you find it so easy to pick fights with so many ppl on the forum is b/c you find it easy to hide behind your many avatars. I wonder if you would be so brave as to say the things you say with your real name and pic. posted?

                  I hope that was not directed at me. Because I am not sure where that came from.

                    I have taken you for a troll from day one. You tend to create a whole lot of drama. Having real life friends on the forum seemed suspect too. I had seen some of your arguments with other posters and I tried to avoid it. Trolls tend to pick a person to focus on and eventually start a thread about them. Ive had many threads with my name on them, maybe b/c I appear to be outgoing, so when I saw yours, I was not surprised. However, as trolls tend to target ppl, it just cemented in my mind that you were one.

                    If you're just an ordinary person with some issues like the rest of us, then feel free to ignore my remarks, but if you are just trolling the forum... Ive had my fill of trolls. I don't want to play.

    Lot of fighting everywhere today. If you are starting to lose you temper, Beth, we are in serious trouble.

      To the contrary, trolls have a calming effect on me... I understand their motivation. It's those that hate openly that mess with my mind.

        I just can't tune into this thread at all. 'Fraid, I don't have a clue what is going on.

          I've done my best to steer clear, but eventually you have to face it. Maybe it's ready to move on... but I kinda doubt it.

        I've got to get me some of that self-control.  I just finished not getting into a religious debate over my latest hub and am patting myself on the back, but I wouldn't call the result "calming" by any means.

          Well we all have our breaking points. Im playing scrabble at the moment and one of my opponents words was "patience"... a good reminder I thought, one I needed this morning.

            Commendable, whether motivated by Scrabble or otherwise.

    I just can not figure you out Beth. Are you getting mad about this thread? If so shame, it was a joke and a bit of a compliment. If I am way off let me know but I think my reading comprehension is well enough to understand most of this. And as for the troll stuff, that seems a bit beneath you, honestly. Even if it was not directed at me, again correct me if I am wrong. But your not the type that goes around using internet cliches.
