Has anyone else found themselves to be thread killers?

I'm not entirely sure if this is the right forum for this but this is a community that I'm living with so I thought I'd express my concerns about my place here, here.

So, am I the only one here who finds themselves to be thread killers? I mean, have you ever found that the instant you post to a thread that thread immediately terminates? And that this happens with every thread you've ever tried to participate on? It's a bit of an exaggeration but it really does feel like a new trend with me on these forums.

I'm wondering if I'm alone on this one or if others have found this about themselves. If you've found yourself with a sudden lack of desire to post in a thread that you were previously quite active in because I've made a post there, please feel free to voice your opinion here. I haven't taken offense to anything anyone has ever said on TFP, I won't start now...

Although I don't think I've ever had a "sudden lack of desire" to post in a thread you've posted in, I do understand what it feels like to be the ultimate thread killer!

When I first came here, it seemed like every thread I replied to sunk to the botttom immediately. At first it kind of bothered me, but after a while I got used to it, and now, I rarely kill threads at all. Soooo, I'd have to say it's probably not you, it's probably just coincidence. Hang in there, and it'll surely get better.

Okay, apparently, I hit quickquote instead of quick edit, please overlook this post.

Mods, feel free to zap this extraneous message, if you feel so inclined.

It just happens. But it's human nature to think that, because you were the last person on the thread, you're responsible for the ending of it. Kinda like worrying about why streetlights go out right when you walk under them. It just happens.

lol... don't worry about it. I find you one of the smarter (well.. in terms of math anyway.. =p) posters around. Always a pleasure to read your posts in Tilted Knowledge.

Perhaps its selective memory. You only remember the posts where no one else replies.

I think i'm a thread sinker too.. =p

maybe it's because you give a "solution" of sorts to the issue in the thread, and people feel that with it resolved it does not need to be disscussed anymore. or somethingl

I know the feeling, trust me. So often I think, "here is something good that ought to get some good replies because it is saying something that no one else has said" and then the thread ends or my comment gets no responses and the discussion head in a different direction.

Ah well... it doesn't happen all of the time at least.

You guys can't possibly kill posts....It's common knowledge that I kill all the posts here at the forum.

Sometimes I can do it with just one sentence.

Wait and watch, this thread will now start to slowly sink.

Oh, I've felt that way too. I mean, my posts can't be the "be all to end all" answers to questions posed. I think it's like a conversation, the threads have reached their input threashold and no other posts get posted.

haven't had that problem too much here but at another forum I seem to be a thread killer. I think it has alot to do with jumping in on threads that have already been around a while which I do since I am not generally checking the forums all the time

It's probably all coincidence but there are several, (hundred?), threads in which I am the last poster. I feel the same way you do sometimes but it may also be that I am kind of old and opinionated.

Could be that no one wants to poke a rockogre with a sharp stick.
