Thread Killer

Fri Jul 24, 2009 9:54 pm

Hey All,
So! Here's to me. The Thread Killer. Almost every time I post on a thread I do not start, I end up being the last reply. Whether it's bad luck, or stupidity.
Anybody else have this problem?

You see...the trick with it is...and sometimes it's the same way with the ladies...is that you just don't care. Post what you want, ignore criticism...and carry on.

Always seems to happen to me, less so on this forum but more on another aviation forum, the name of which shall not be mentioned..  Smile

I prefer to think that it is because my post is either:
A: Beyond the intelligence levels of everyone else so that no one else does not dare post after me for fear of appearing sub-intelligent, or

B: Such a good posting that it completely says all that needs to be said on the relevant topic and therefore no one else could possibly add anything more constructive to it.

And I will continue to allow myself to keep thinking that..!

It would be far worse if your thread starter was the last post in your thread. I have a fuzzy memory from days past where someone when back through pages upon pages of the forums and produced a way cool list of how any times each member was the "thread killer"

I believe it was sent to me in an email and was broken down into a very nifty graph by name and thread "kills" This should not be too hard to reproduce now as all a ambitious member would have to do is drop the names the member in the last post column and thread title column from several dozen pages of a given forum into a (dare I say the words) "spread sheet".

The results would allow some lucky member to earn the lofty monthly title of "Chief Thread Executioner of the Month"

All that is needed is someone with the time and motivation to do the data managment.

The Prize was a crude photo from the wild days of this site it ended up being a bit of an insult. It was awarded to people for a variety of reasons some of which were not too nice (strangely many time it was quite funny) which is why I did not want to associate the honor of "Chief Thread Executioner of the Month" with something as naughty as the prize.

The reference was made as many times "the prize" was often the last word needed when a thread, topic etc need to be wrapped up with a single image and thus it often became a "thread killer" itself
