Title: Thread-Killing
Post by: Lynn2000 on March 01, 2011, 05:02:04 PM
Anybody else ever feel like a thread-killer? Like, you post to a thread, maybe even just a small comment, and then NOBODY ELSE posts in that thread ever. Or at least, not for several days, when previously it seemed like new posts were appearing several times a day.

Paranoia? Lack of perspective? Lack of patience?

Posted somewhat in jest but also curiosity if anyone else has felt this way. Um, and if I AM doing something to kill threads for real... please let me know.

I think every newbie feels like that at one point or another. For a while, when I first came here, I was tempted to change my name to 'DangerMouth, Killer of Threads' ;D

Some figures which had a good source but for which you'll have to trust me befuase I'm not going to shuffle the paperwork. Most of the posting in any forum is done by 1% of the visitors. Another 5% post frequently and another 20% or so post infrequently.

Therefore a thread is likely to die after X number of posters have had their say. Unless the OP adds more or the posters fight amongst themselves it should be a reasonably consistent number.

I'd like to see eHell percentages actually. That would be worth a white paper.

Uh-oh, my post was just eaten... Looks like the threads are fighting back!

I always picture the EHell community (because all the members except me live on the same cosmic plane of existence) reading my post and saying to each other, "The poor dear just doesn't get it, does she?" Then they all discreetly move away to another thread, hoping I will somehow get the hint... Hmm, don't mean to make everyone sound uncharitable! Apparently I have some kind of persecution complex.

I will also point out that threads slip down the "show unread messages" list when other threads become more active. Threads just don't get seen after a while if you use that method of accessing the site.

Didn't we have a poll a while back asking why people didn't post? ISTR lots of people saying they didn't post because someone had already said what they were saying. In which case everyone who feels that way, say fifty people, actually act as one poster. The first poster speaks for the other 49!
Title: Re: Thread-Killing
Post by: Luci on March 01, 2011, 07:59:59 PM
No, no, no! I am the thread killer!

I feel a major accomplishment is a POD on my thoughts, and I went running out to tell DH that I had won the eHell prize one day - it had to do with chocolate. He wasn't surprised.

I sometimes wonder if I should post on some of the threads just to get rid of their showing up, like the ones with hundreds of pages that are repeating themselves. Start anew, life is good.

OK. This thread is done, now. Sorry about that.
Title: Re: Thread-Killing

Some of the questions posted are such stumpers or so schocking that no one knows what to say.

Post by: think2x on March 01, 2011, 08:36:16 PM
LOL- Yes, and it's really coincidental you mention it now, because I've been noticing it a lot lately. I'm going through an ehell identity crisis !  :P  And not infrequently, I'll bring up something, then later, someone else will mention it and everyone will go, 'oooh, right' (good point, other poster). And it doesn't escape me that some will throw in excited, capitalized, multiple exclamation point PODS!!! to those who disagree with me. And the coffee-break thread pointing out our stats showing just how much extra time I have on my hands! I'm on ehell paranoia overload. Oooo, (twitch, twitch)...is that my thorazine over there...

I was thinking of exactly that, but i don't even remember the thread title or even the folder. I remember a lot of people - or at least a few - saying they would get a whole post written out, then go, "Meh," and delete it.

I love the "show unread messages" options; but that is a good point about them, too.

LOL! I usually get a whole reply typed out and then go "Oh, my goodness, that sounds awful!" and delete it. On bad days, I type it out and post it before saying that. :P :-X

YES!! I have totally felt like this! I actually said the words "I am a thread killer" to my DH a few weeks ago. Thank you so much for letting me know that I'm not the only one. In my case it is exacerbated by being out of time-zone sync with the majority of the posters.

Someone please post after this...

No, no, no! I am the thread killer!

Pod.  You are the thread killer. :)   Sorry I couldn't resist. I'm joking.

I don't think any of us are thread killers. I've certainly not noticed anyone killing threads. Maybe you're all just writing something so profound no one wants to follow it up. That your words are full of so much wisdom, no one's going to be able to better it.

I had sometimes thought maybe I was killing threads so I went back and checked and after getting bored of flipping through my old posts I had about 5% of my posts where I was the last post on the thread. It's at least the same again if I'm the second last person.

They should pack us up and ship us off to Pern.

ha. ha... ha?

*crickets*

*snorts* :D I hope I get a queen dragon at Impression then. :D [Or at least something besides a silly green. ;) ]

Heh.

But greens can at least breathe fire and kill thread. If you get a gold dragon you'll need a flamethrower. But you can travel back in time without anyone telling you not to too so I suppose not having a firebreathing dragon has its pluses.

Yup.  I've thought about commissioning  a Tshirt that says, "Just call me the threadkiller" on it." 

Paranoia?  Probably.  Lack of perspective?  Definitely.  I'm guessing that if I looked up, say,  my last fifty posts,  there would be posts after the great majority of them which would seem to disprove my threadkiller status.  On the other hand,  there are always those threads that seem to be alive and kicking until I come along and drop in a few pearls of wisdom and then... oblivion. 

But ... if someone posted something jaw-droppingly stupid or hopelessly irrelevant, someone would point it out (politely), wouldn't they?  Huh?

This is too funny! I occasionally see people joking (so I thought...) "I killed this thread!" but I didn't realise it was an actual thing people worried about. Maybe because I assume that if what I said was that dumb other people would either straight-up ignore it, or just tell me that I was dumb! I don't think I've ever seen the last post of a thread be something controversial or dumb. (I realise people know they're being irrational, it's just interesting to me that it's such a common worry.) Now maybe I'll start being paranoid about it too!

Ok, so I look at Loki...and I can't tell where his face is. :o Please tell me it's not just me.  :-[

I think we need wands AND swords.

Because that would be awesome.  8)

I think his face is smooshed into the seat. So, not visible in the picture.

As for the rest... would the cloaks be properly swishy? You look so much more cool with a swishy cloak - it just flows around you, even if you're doing something ordinary.

Loki - the picture is taken from the side.  His head is tucked almost completely under his chest.  He's wierd.

So, ninja outfits with various colored cloaks; wands and swords, with stilettos up our sleeves unless we're bare-fisted bruisers instead; a cool theme song and a mascot named Loki (cool name for a mascot).

It works for me.

Shall we talk about the 'thread derailer'? Or should that be a new thread? Or would that help this tread thrive?

It's up to the OP.

This post seems off-topic, could we get back on track?   ;D
I like kittens!

Kittens are a wonderful derailer! We have to get permission from Lynn2000.

You threatened to leave! Please don't! We need you.

As for saying something and then someone else saying the same thing later and getting praised, I think it depends on who is online and how quickly they are skimming to catch up. I have decided to not be hurt but do a "na-na-na-na---I beat you and I am right!' dance and feel kind of vindicated and feeling sad that the later poster hadn't read so well, but understanding. Just like when someone misses one line in an OP and suggests something that the poster has already mentioned is not an option.

The worst thing I have done was when there was an issue and I had a response in about a 7 word sentence - very insightful and concise, of course. I had read the entire thread beforehand and didn't quite understand the sentence structure of a post; then after I posted, I realized that I had said exactly the same thing only in traditional clear English and the other poster was probably just beginning to use English.

I felt so awful, but didn't know how to make it better. I should PM and say, "Keep trying, honey. You'll figure it out."?  How condescending, even without the 'honey'. An apology wouldn't work because I would still sound condescending. I let it lay. I don't know if she ever came back again. I looked for a bit, but didn't see her again.

No derailing intended here, mascot searchers or Lynn2000.

No, I just feel like it's proper and only my due. ;) [Just kidding. :P ]

I've had comprehension problems before that I think were due to someone having English as a second/third/what have you language, but I don't really say anything because English is confusing as all get out, and I think everyone on here who doesn't have it as a first language speaks it better than many [not necessarily on here :P ] that do. ;D

That reminds me, too, I found out the other day that my Linguistics prof speaks 27 languages! :o And I don't mean just a few words and that's it...he's at least understandable if not fluent in them, I believe. Wow.

Anyway, this shall probably kill the thread, as I know likely no one cares about my Linguistics professor. :P

Okay, I'm impressed.  I haven't had a whole lot of success with languages, so people who are multilingual really impress me.

(My friend and her husband are raising their kids multilingual--she speaks to them in Chinese, he speaks Danish, and they learn English from other adults, friends, and school.  It's pretty impressive to watch the older one switch from one language to another without even pausing to think about it.)

Honestly, sometimes I forget which of you don't speak English as your native language.  I am on a local board, which is in an English-speaking country, and some of you speak sooooooo much better than them that I forget it's not your first language.  Much respect!

I mostly feel like my posts are ignored; probably because I said something so stupid or obvious or incredibly boring that everyone is still shaking their heads, or I am just agreeing with someone else.  I am very funny in real life, (honest  ;D) but tone really donesn't ranslate well on the internet so I self-edit so much that it occasionally no longer makes sense!  OTOH, when someone POD's my post, I do a little jiggle-dance in my chair!  Self-esteem, where aaaaaaare you?  :P

A lot of times I am afraid to post because so many of you are so much more articulate and knowledgeable than I am that I will sound stupid.

There has been one subject that what I said was totally misunderstood and I got so slammed for that it scared me into silence for a long time. I tried to defend myself, and somehow it didn't work. The misunderstanding got deeper and deeper even long after I bowed out . It even got kind of amusing, even though I was still  hurt. Don't know why I kept lurking.

I jump for joy when people reply to my threads, jump even higher when I am quoted, and PM make me hit the roof in a very positive sense of being overjoyed that someone is taking the time to talk to me haha.

(As far as languages go, I have French, English bilingual-except-when-not-woken-up-OR-when-I-would-need-it-the-most, some Spanish, smallish bits of Italian, vaaaaaaaaaaague notions of Japanese, I think I can say Hello in Korean, and I remember how to say "I am a student at X school" in Arabic :P )

Thread Killer Sabbyfrog here. I actually think I killed two threads here in the last two days...  :-[

I am very much one of those people who "overtypes" when I can't think of just the right thing to say. Usually, I can be pretty concise but sometimes, I just can't get the words to come out of my head and into my hands to type them. I am very opinionated (I am sure some you have noticed...  :P ) and I am just not as eloquant as I'd like to be sometimes when I am passionate. I feel like people get to my posts and go, "Whoa! I have no time to sit through that," and decide to move on thus leaving my post as the last one and the thread dies.

I think I would rather just let myself believe that my posts were so profound that no one else felt the need to reply...so there...
yep, that's it.... no no it's not to save my ego...

Denial... I haz it.

See? I just killed this one...    :(

What's worse is when you start a thread and almost no one responds.  Especially if it's in "I Need A Hug."

I totally agree!  I am an infrequent poster, and sometimes I feel like ya'll are probably thinking "Katiescarlett?  Who's that?  Does anyone here know a katiescarlett?" ;D

Is it sad that I find it so exciting when someone quotes me in a post?

I do the same thing!  I get so weirdly excited about people agreeing with me or quoting me.  I might as well put "Validate Me!" in my sig.  :P

POD!  ;)

I've never thought about thread-killing, but I do feel like my posts often come across as inarticulate and pointless. I feel like I don't have much of a "personality" on this board (unlike MrsJWine, whose posts I am always excited to see!).

I don't post much compared to how much time I spend reading, mainly because others have already said what I'm thinking better than I could, and it seems silly to just quote people and post "POD" all the time. I do tend to type out a lot of posts that I don't end up posting; I probably actually post only about 10% of the replies I write.  :P

With a thread with so many terrible lines, how can it die?
Title: Re: Thread-Killing
Post by: Lynn2000 on March 03, 2011, 09:46:36 AM
CRUD MONKEYS! This is my most successful thread EVER.

It also happens that right after I started it, I was completely off EHell for a couple days.

Coincidence? I think not.  :P Clearly, the very act of me viewing a thread inhibits it from growing.

Although, I think it shouldn't count as thread-killing if you STARTED the thread. So I won't feel bad if no one posts after this one. Sometimes when a thread I've started quiets down, I like to go back and post one final message thanking everyone for their advice, and that to me feels more like a "bookend" than a kill.

Anyway... I'm glad to know I'm not alone in the thread-killing department! Please feel free to derail into kittens (well, not literally) or whatever else you'd like, now that we've been moved to the Coffee Break folder.

I also sometimes feel like I occasionally post original advice (as opposed to just PODding) and no one seems to notice it, and then a couple pages later someone else posts a similar idea and everyone praises it. But, that doesn't bother me too much, because I would be uncomfortable with too much attention... sometimes in heated threads you see a post held up as a great idea, and then the tide turns and people start picking it apart, and I wouldn't like that much. I always just hope that the OP (and others) are reading all the responses and thinking about mine even if they don't say anything, because I like being able to offer help to people who've asked for it. Also I'm NOT very concise (no, really?) and usually the "repeated" advice that everyone notices is written by someone in a much more succinct and straightforward manner.

And, I don't feel bad PODding (though I usually reiterate with another sentence or two as opposed to just saying "POD!"). I figure it lets people know that other people agree with the poster's ideas, that it's not just the opinion of ONE person, and that can be important when you're trying to gauge how "people in general" think about something. In my mind it's kind of like a "like" button for a post. Also, if someone expresses basically what I was thinking as I read the thread, I like to give them some feedback and let them know that.

Confession time - I always think my opinion was so poorly worded, or just plain BORING, that it's ignorned. In the very beginning, I thought threads I had posted in were blocked or deleted because I didn't have my settings set correctly.  :-[

I was really thrilled when a poster I respect alot thanked me for posting her thoughts and saved her the trouble of typing. I was so excited that I actually told Hastings about it. He laughed at me.  ;D  :-[

Don't worry, I promise I will come back and post last if it's been quiet for a few days! Although, I'm not sure if "posting last" is really the same as "killing"... I always felt paranoid when my post seemed to generate utter silence for a while, even if someone else posted later, like the group needed time to regain their composure before resuming the conversation.

Though MY reality at least is, I never look at the time/date stamp on a post before replying. If it comes up as "new" to me I just assume it's an active conversation. Occasionally this has led to me giving heartfelt advice to someone whose original problem occurred in 2009.  ::)

Of course not, crooking your pinky would throw off the balance of your hand, making it harder to get the proper drink to chocolate ratio and increasing the probability of a sloshing the drink into your face, thus necessitating a replacement.

from the website bakeitinacake.com which has some of the most decadent cupcakes I have ever in my life seen!


Nutella and Vanilla Cupcake With Nutella Buttercream

If you’re a Nutella lover, then this is the cupcake for you! They’re really easy to make, and versatile, too. You can mix it up with different kinds of wafer cookies in the center, or even different kinds of cake. Maybe chocolate? Or hazlenut? Or even NUTELLA? Possibilities = endless. This will make anywhere from 18-24 cupcakes, depending on how much batter you put in each tin, really. I fill ‘em as close to top as I can without making them overflow while baking. You might play it safer. And that’s okay.

For the cupcakes you’ll need:

1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter, room temperature
1 1/2 c. granulated sugar
3 eggs
2 t. vanilla
2 t. baking powder
1/2 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt
1 1/3 c. whole milk
2 1/2 c. all-purpose flour
24 bite-sized chocolate wafer cookies
a jar of Nutella

For the buttercream and topping you’ll need:

2 sticks unsalted butter, room temperature
2 c. powdered sugar
2 t. vanilla
3/4 c. Nutella (or more, if you’d like, don’t be afraid to go your own way with it)

Directions:

Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees (F).

Cream together the butter and sugar for the cupcakes, until fluffy. Add in the eggs, one at a time, and then the vanilla, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Stop the mixer to scrape down the sides of the bowl to make sure everything is gettin’ all mixed up real nice. It should be creamy and fairly smooth.

Add in the flour and the milk, a 1/2 cup at a time, alternating between the two. Once all combined, whip for a good 45 seconds to get everything all mixed and aerated. Scoop a heaping tablespoon of batter into paper-lined cupcake tins. Place a wafer (or two, if there’s room—if you’re gonna do it, might as well do it right) in each tin, and then top them with a heaping teaspoon of Nuttela. Scoop another heaping tablespoon of cupcake batter on top of that, smoothing it over the top and down around the edges of the wafer cookies. The tins should be about 3/4 of the way full, maybe a smidge more. (By the way, don’t work with the batter too much while smoothing it over the Nutella because you don’t want to mix it in. You want there to be a gooey chocolatey blob of it in the middle of the cupcake. Trust me.)

Bake for about 24 minutes, until the cake sets and the tops and edges of the cupcakes turn golden brown.

Allow to cool, then make the frosting!

Cream together the butter and the Nutella until well combined. It helps when both ingredients are at room temperature, because they blend better and there are less lumps. Then add the vanilla, and then the powdered sugar, a half cup at a time, until it’s all mixed in. Give it a taste and add more sugar or Nutella if necessary.

Sprinkle the cupcakes with some chopped up toasted hazelnuts. Hooray!

You know the old internet adage "Don't feed the trolls?"

I've been on fora where they don't feed the trolls, they adopt them and smother them with kindness and understanding until they run away screaming in horror.

This is my first post on this thread, so this is me, feeding it.
Maybe that will work?

Oh, and re the idea of staking it through the heart - here's a question:

If you can't kill a vampire by shooting it, but you can kill it with a stake throught heart, could you kill a vampire with a gun loaded with a blank and a pencil???

Inquiring minds want to know...

Oh, priceless! Can I steal that for a novel? It couldn't be an actual pencil, but maybe a wooden bullet? hmm....

My DH says that there's a book called "The Holmes-Dracula File," in which Holmes used wood bullets. But you can only get so much velocity before the wood splinters. According to him, most modern pistols would shatter the pencil.

I do remember Buffy being fond of crossbows with bolts made of wood. So the basic concept is workable, but there are some things to work around.

Hmm., SO is a firearms nut (well, not like that :D), so maybe I'll take the question to him.

This is truly first poem I memorized on my own - Not forced like Bible verses, nursery rhymes, songs. It made me feel better most of my ugly life:

 
The Hippopotamus  (Ogden Nash)
 
Behold the hippopotamus!
We laugh at how he looks to us,
And yet in moments dank and grim,
I wonder how we look to him.

Peace, peace, thou hippopotamus!
We really look all right to us,
As you no doubt delight the eye
Of other hippopotami.

Funny. I thought I was the only one because of my shaky grasp of the English language.  :D

Honestly, sometimes I forget which of you don't speak English as your native language.  I am on a local board, which is in an English-speaking country, and some of you speak sooooooo much better than them that I forget it's not your first language.  Much respect!

I mostly feel like my posts are ignored; probably because I said something so stupid or obvious or incredibly boring that everyone is still shaking their heads, or I am just agreeing with someone else.  I am very funny in real life, (honest  ;D) but tone really donesn't ranslate well on the internet so I self-edit so much that it occasionally no longer makes sense!  OTOH, when someone POD's my post, I do a little jiggle-dance in my chair!  Self-esteem, where aaaaaaare you?  :P

If you find self-esteem and have any left over, I'll take it.  I could sure use some.

What's worse is when you start a thread and almost no one responds.  Especially if it's in "I Need A Hug."
I have also felt like a thread killer before.  I guess if a thread has petered out, no matter how brilliant my response, no one has anything more to say. 
As for zero response threads....I've had that happen.  :o

I'm posting 4 of these (Irish blessing):

     May the road rise to meet you.
 May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face.
  The rains fall softly upon your fields,
       And until we meet again
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

(Picture this in green color surrounded by shamrocks and the font is Gaelic.)

If the average woodchuck weighs between 4 and 9 pounds, and a cord of wood is 128 cubic feet, how many cords could two woodchucks chuck, assuming that they could chuck wood at all?

What is the air speed of an unladen swallow?

Happy to have repaid, even though only fractionally, the many laughs you've provided me by posts in this, as well as other threads. ;)

Cereal killing, on the other hand, is an ethical quagmire.
Yes, does one employ whole milk, some lower percentage fat variety, yogurt to keep the calcium and lose the lactose, soy to be vegan... and, of course, this doesn't begin to address the question of whole versus some sadly lesser form of grain.

But, at some point, one must expect accountability and responsibility on the part of the intended victim.

I think hanging/strangling was one of the few things that they didn't try on the Mad Monk.

I'm fascinated by the tangled web of puns, quotes, lethal techniques that we've woven here.

;D  Actually, I was referring to the song "Cyanide" by Mettalica, excerpted below:

Empty they say
Death, won't you let me stay?
Empty they say
Death, hear me call your name
Oh, call your name!

Suicide, I've already died
You're just the funeral I've been waiting for
Cyanide, living dead inside
Break this empty shell forevermore

Edited to add: Although, actually since my name is Poirot, 30's mystery novels makes more sense.  ;)

Well, I kinda was.  :-[ But in my (very strange) brain, bitter almond led me to Cyanide, which led me to the song (because it's about death) which led me to Mettalica. (and this happens to be my 2nd favorite Mettalica song)

If you consider that I'm a mid-40's grandmother who loves to read, my brain probably should have jumped to mysteries first, but then I can blame all of the brain cells killed in the 80's.  ;D

Excellent question! ;D

I do agree that at times you need to watch the movie/show for the entire hottiness persona to come through. Attitude does count in the hotness factor. Sometimes a simple picture just doesn't do it.


I often look at (Sam Elliot, Clark Gable, Clint Eastwood to name a few) and say "Oh! Wow! YUM!" and the DDs look at me like "For real, Mom?" :P

Terrible idea! I don't understand how someone considered attractive can be call 'Yummy'.

And I would never have found Hugh Laurie or Adrian Paul attractive. I don't like the unkempt look at all, and wet shirt and hair? Yuck. Some of the others, I would have, so I don't think it is age.

Posting in part to keep Thread going, but also to note that (while I do find the photos posted to be entirely delightful eye candy), there has not been a determination of Thread's gender, or preferences.

Open question:  what do you see as Thread's non-gender specific characteristics?

I'm voting first for a non-Darwin award ability to adapt.  Now, if only I can bottle that for use in business scenarios....

I don't know how to quote all the individual quotes on Adrian Paul (and I do thank you for the pics  ;)), but I am a 25 year old woman who finds him to be very "Good Lord!!! *swoon*".  Oh, how I do love me some swarthy men *day dreams*.  And he's aged incredibly well, too.

I have also been known to deeply appreciate George Michael (my 10 year old self refuses to believe he's g@y, because he's supposed to be waiting for me so we can run off and be married!!  ::)), and I have a place in my heart always for one Antonio Banderas.  The very beginning of "Desperado" when he sings will always be one of my favorite things ever.  He's that gorgeous and he can sing?  Well now he's got me forever, whether he likes it or not :-P. 

I would like Tarkan more, but he looks like my dad, so therefore I feel dirty when I see Tarkan's sweet abs and raise an eyebrow in interest.  I let my mom swoon over him instead  ;).

Then we retconn the whole thing and start over:  Thread: The Movie.  Thread Returns!  Thread vs Mary Poppins.  Thread Goes to College!  My Fair Thread!  The Maltese Thread.  Big Thread in Little China.  Someone will find that Fritz Lang did a silent version and will restore it: Eine Thread aus Berlin.  The Third Thread.  Thread Runner.  Thread Story 1, 2 & 3.  The Quiet Thread.  A Thread's Life.  Flash Gordon and the Thread People.  I Am Curious Thread.  Threadstruck.  The Threads of Navarrone.  A Funny Thread Happened on the Way to the Forum.  42nd Thread.  The Thread Over the River Kwai. The Thread of Baghdad.  One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Thread.  An American Thread in London.  2011: A Space Thread.  The Mark of Thread.  Thread's Eleven, Twelve and Thirteen.

And of course, the classic:  Thread 9 From Outer Space.

Don't forget about the Directors cut versions, Special Editions, 25th anniversary, and Directior wasn't happy with the technology at the time the film was released and re-did the films with CGI (I'm looking at you George Lucas!). THen fans of the Original, BETTER version will rise up in anger and demand that he re-release the original version...all cleaned up of course and in Blu-Ray.

Apologies if this has already been mentioned (haven't read through all 53 pages) but there was a 1983 British telemovie about a nuclear war that basically dooms society as we know it, and brings the human race to a slow, depressing, end.

It was called "Threads".

<cue announcer's voice> When we last left thread, it was just about to be attacked by an alien menace.

Captain - "'Alien menace? Where? Where??"

First Officer - "It is about to attack us, dummy. It hasn't actually done anything yet."

<announcer> The menace slowly crept up on it's unsuspecting victims....

Captain - "This is getting a little creepy."

First Officer - "Oh, brother!"

<announcer> Closer... and closer...

Captain - "That's it. I'll be in the closet for the rest of this episode."

<announcer> Until suddenly...

*Captain opens closet door - and alien thread pops out*

Captain - "AAAHHHHHHH"

Alien thread - "AAAAHHHHHH"

First Officer - "Hy-AAAA!!!!" *knocks thread across the room*

Alien thread - "Hey! All I wanted was directions!"

First Officer - "From him? Good luck. He couldn't find his way out of a paper bag."

Captain - "Hey! I resent that! I found my way out of my lunch bag, didn't I?"

First Officer - "Yeah, and it took you a week..."

<sound of giggles from Scientist and Alien thread>

Captain - "Hey, stop laughing!!!"

<announcer> Tune in next week when you will hear the First Officer say...

First Officer - "When's lunch?"

Scientist - "Are you that hungry?"

First Officer - "No, I want to shove him back in the bag..."

<announcer> And that concludes.... Thread in Spaaaaaaaaaaace!!!

"Who amongst you often does not fully grasp the original question and answers in an obtuse and unhelpful way?"

"Who will use the quote function recklessly, quoting entire passages only to POD underneath them?"

"Who cannot form basic grammer and sentence structure so that other readers will think - What has that poster been drinking?"

And kill me when I'm sleeping
That's why

Please don't hang your head and cry
No wonder why

Lock the doors and close the blinds
Thread's going for a ride!

I have a living will with a Do Not Resuscitate order, so I'd appreciate it if you could respect that.

Love,

I have often noticed that, LOL! Robert is not such a common name anymore, I think, at least compared to how it used to be, and it seems like "young people" today would go by Robert or Rob instead of Bob. But my grandfather was Robert/"Bob" and we always got him those generic "Parking for Bob Only" signs and so forth.

I often wonder about the names people choose for their "characters" in EHell stories... Personally I like short ones--I don't want to be typing Evangeline over and over again--and I like to pick classic/common ones like Anne, Amy, Jane, Joe, Adam, etc.. Probably everyone knows one or more people with those names and I think it helps avoid conjuring up additional characteristics just based on the name. Like if I called a person Antonio people might start picturing Antonio Banderas and a dashing, Latin-lover type... which doesn't really match the image of the elderly man who loudly commented on me passing gas in the bookstore. If you see what I mean. So he becomes Bob instead. :)

If you ever get the chance, please see The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abrigded) by the Reduced Shakespeare Company.  There's a gag in there where they take several volunteers on stage and call them all "Bob."  In fact, the person running the lights is "Bob" as well.

I invited Bob to come and stop Thread once & for all. Bob RSVP'd yes but then he cancelled on me at the last moment.  He said that he was too busy addressing wedding invitations with two pages of registry information on them and sorting out the A,B and C list for the invites.  Then he had the gall to ask if he could borrow $3452 from me, all before drawing on my tablecloth, drinking my last beer and flouncing off in his tight & too small denim shorts.

One of our inactive members is Jane in real life. It's OK to say who because she advertises her book and has a blog we are invited to view. We all love Tabris, so your daughter is in good company. Her profile: http://www.etiquettehell.com/smf/index.php?action=profile;u=331 Her blog: http://philangelus.wordpress.com/ I am sending that in case any of you were wondering. Also, Thread is new here, so he may be interested.

I do admit I'm taken aback when I see any of our family names used for not exemplary characters on ehell. We all have traditional Anglo names, what one member's father called 'regular American names', so it happens often. It's not so bad with my names because I know I'm not perfect and do and say a lot of thoughtless and rude things.
Title: Re: Thread-Killing
Post by: Lynn2000 on May 13, 2011, 09:17:24 AM
As I mentioned I use names like Jane, Anne, Joe, etc. a lot in my posts, not only because they're short but because, as people here attest, many people know someone with that name and possibly more than one person, which IMO kind of neutralizes the image of the name a bit. I actually know three people named Jane quite well, all of whom are very nice; but there have been so many people named Jane throughout history and literature that I'm still able to easily use Jane as a cover name in a story. (Usually paired with Jim, because I like to give my couples the same first initial so it's easier to tell who goes together--Amy and Adam, Jane and Jim, Kelly and Kevin.)

Although oddly enough, I really like using the name Betty, too, which I don't feel actually meets my criteria. Go figure. I also use Emma, which again doesn't meet my criteria necessarily, but I only use it for one particular person whose name is somewhat similar in real life... I can't get too far afield or I'll forget who I'm talking about.  :P

Has anyone ever noticed how often people use the name "Bob" in their posts?  Bob must be the rudest man in the world.  He may be just the person to kill Thread once and for all.

If you ever get the chance, please see The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abrigded) by the Reduced Shakespeare Company.  There's a gag in there where they take several volunteers on stage and call them all "Bob."  In fact, the person running the lights is "Bob" as well.

A {ahem} few years ago, my in laws bought our kids a movie. In laws didn't want to pay big for a Name Brand movie, so they got another version.
The movie in question was "Snow White and the Seven Dwarves". You'd think - it being a fairly well known story and all - that the plot would be recognizable.

Not so much.
We got a clue to this when it turned out that all the dwarves were named Joe.
I get that other names are copyrighted, but having them all named Joe was...wierd.
I don't think we ever got past the part where they introduced "Joe, Joe, Joe...Joe, Joe, Joe and...Joe."

Haha...please, no, don't make me her!

(Although...when I graduated from high school, the parents of the graduates designed and made posters for their kids and hung them up throughout the school for us to find the night of the all-night grad party. My mother used Cathy from the comics to depict me - except blonde instead of brunette - and had me writing The Great American Novel.)

Dear Thread,

It's time to wake up and come out to play.

Have you heard if eastern Iowa (Amana Colonies) is dry? Or have you been too busy fighting for your life?

What about Big Bone Lick State Park in Kentucky? (Its unfortunate name has to do with mammoth bones and salt deposits.)

Thanks.

Ed: By dry, I mean free of floodwaters that are plaguing the midwest US right now.

A Bring Your Own Thread party?  A Thread-warming party?  A "Welcome to the Thread" party? A "Thread Shower"?

Remember, Thread has a midnight curfew....also, Thread's under age (although with all the posts we make it may well make it to legal adulthood).

Great idea!

Would you mind getting Thread home in time so that I can take him with me to visit a sick friend in rehab on Sunday afternoon?

I figure Thread knows a lot about recuperating and thriving against all odds and all that.

I'll drop him off about 8 PM Sat night so he can unwind  ;)  from the party.

You will take good care of him, I know. I'm sure he will be a help to your friend.

Thread enjoyed the party Saturday and did not get loopy, so was wellbehaved.

He helped jpcher Sunday and is now thoroughly rewoven so will not allow himself to be unravelled by your efforts.

He has starch in his spine now, and is looking a metallic core to add to it.

He must be very attractive! At least from the ads I'm getting, it seems that way.

He is getting tied in with multicolor threads of different materials, and now yarns seem to be coming to the rescue!

The army of protectors and supporters is growing. A little Scotchguard and I think he is in pretty good shape!
Title: Re: Thread-Killing
Post by: jpcher on June 06, 2011, 04:47:20 PM
Thread had a really good visit with sick friend on Sunday. He was particularly interested in the pins friend has in her neck (she just had neck surgery).

Thread wanted to borrow one hoping that it would help him keep his head up nice and strong when he came home. I told him it would be impolite to ask.


But he did like the scotchguard idea! So I sprayed him down real good.


Thread is smiling now.

So, this is perhaps off-topic now, but... how does one know if one really *is* a thread-killer!  Not on this message board, but on another I frequent, a few times I've posted on an active topic and then it died, or I posted something that actually contained a question (as a response to something else) and nobody commented after me.  I always get responses when I post a new post, but I'm wondering if it's possible that, as a newbie in the other forum, I'm talking too much/overstepping.  Do some forums have a social dynamic where they don't like overactive newbies?
Title: Re: Thread-Killing
Post by: Luci on June 11, 2011, 07:56:12 AM
^ I've wondered that, too, but you knew how to ask it clearly! Hoping for an answer here.

Title: Re: Thread-Killing
Post by: blue2000 on June 11, 2011, 11:43:00 AM
Some boards do seem very 'cliquey' so you might not get anyone to respond to a random question. If you make friends with the elite, you might get better responses - assuming you do actually want to be friends with these people! :)

Other times, people just don't know the answer to your question, so they don't post. Even on here, threads can die like that.

Yeah, even here in the Ehell forum, sometimes threads just don't go anywhere for reasons that no one really knows.  And in other cases, threads take off with enormous momentum and it surprises everyone.

I think that this is part of what makes Ehell fun-it's not predictable in that respect.  This thread really surprised me in that it turned into a very funny one to read (;D) and try to kill or keep alive as one's sense of humor dictates.  But on a serious note (A flat ;)), if this forum ever seems "cliquey" or dismissive of someone, speaking for myself, I apologize for anything I post that gives off that impression and promise to be more sensitive.

That said, now back to our regularly scheduled programming. 

Okay, thread-live or die?  I think the Fates are standing by ready to snip off your life-or spin you out.  Which will it be?  Stay tuned.

I am hoping that this thread does not get tangled in with the craft thread about yarn skeins. That is important, too, but I'm not sure that after all Thread has been through that he can handle it.

On the other hand, there may be good advice from him.

Best wishes to the yarn skein thread.

I do have to mention that those selfthreading needles from As Seen on TV, thread nicely, but the needle itself is not the fine steel that I am accustomed to. I truly hope Thread doesn't get involved with one of 'those' (deprecating tone), either.

Anybody else ever feel like a thread-killer? Like, you post to a thread, maybe even just a small comment, and then NOBODY ELSE posts in that thread ever. Or at least, not for several days, when previously it seemed like new posts were appearing several times a day.

Paranoia? Lack of perspective? Lack of patience?

Posted somewhat in jest but also curiosity if anyone else has felt this way. Um, and if I AM doing something to kill threads for real... please let me know.

Sometimes, if it's about a TV show the show's just gone into hiatus for the summer or something.  Someone will either revive the thread or start a new one when the new season starts.  That doesn't bother me.

Sometimes I say something in total silly jest ;D and nobody posts, or they discreetly change the subject.  Then I go, "oops!"

Send him on over for the ice  cream and I will clean him up afterwards. I have Woolite.

Does he get starched?

Post by: Baxter on July 13, 2011, 07:18:22 AM


Does he get starched?

Sometimes, but he doesn't like to talk about it, if you needle him about it he wafts & weaves and won't give a straight answer, then just when you think you've got him sewn up he bobbins about.

He's missing! I had the ice cream and the Woolite out all ready, but he never showed up. Did I scare him or embarrass him about the starch? Does he not like mint?

I guess we have a lost, frightened Thread out there somewhere. The vermin may get him because of the pears and oatmeal.

The green curtains glistened in the sunlight giving the thread an idea. It tore them down and made a fashionable green dress with a smart little hat to match. The thread looked smart in it's new outfit and happily trips off to impress a certain rogue.

Cat is right.I lost part of my backbone (literally). A few cuddles and some stories about Thread's galavanting, and I'll send him off on his adventures again.

It is Sat PM and Thread is practicing his Twist presentation for this evening. His efforts to involve me have failed good naturedly, but he brought my bison and elephant to cuddle, so all is well. He has a new bottle of Woollite and promises to be on his good behavior and go straight to Van and Hogan's after the reception.

Then he is on his own and remembers being grounded so will try not to backslide.

Please promise to show tough love if needed, Lisbeth. Thanks.

Who is chaperoning tonight?

I'm a nervous wreck worrying that he may hurt himself or others, or get tangled up with a bad group who may start telling him yarns too nasty for his delicate little self. Is he ready to run with the 4-ply crowd, yet?

Thread made plans with Yarnie and is going to go see a movie. I think they're seeing the premiere of "Threadloose!"

I belong to another forum where we sometimes get into some very philosophical questions.  One thread was, "If you had a choice to kill the person you loved the most in order to prevent the world from being destroyed, would you do it?"  So, the discussion went on for a while.  One of the posts pointed out, "If the world is destroyed isn't DH going to die anyway?"  Stuff like that.  I threw out, "But, doesn't the whole question imply the world is worth saving?"  I thought this would really get people debating things like: who are we to judge?  How would you decide? etc.

But, it didn't.  It killed the thread...dead.

Oops.

Post by: Luci on August 31, 2011, 04:01:36 PM
Congratulations! That was your one  kill for the day, so Thread is safe for a bit longer, wherever he may be tonight.

Why that little self-centered snot! He just PM'd me that since he is the one everyone loves most in the world, he's going into hiding just in case! Watch for him next time you shop for floss or yarn, please.

Thread is getting a little boring, someone do something

Has he recovered from sefaeria's STOMP yet? I've been worried, but I'm still angry at him for not teaching the Twist at the wedding when he told me he thought it would be fun!

Maybe if he stopped by and helped me go through a file cabinet - I would even let him shred some papers! That always makes for a good time..................

I do need some loose ends tied up. Then he could play with some new yarn I just bought. I guess I just don't know how to entertain a youn'un like that any more.

Hi! Little guy! I've been thinking about you. I've got no news that the forum will care about.

Grandson has a ball python - I'll think about you everytime Sparky sheds and grows!

Where were you for the early Holidays?

Really miss you.

New Year's Eve party at our place beginning about 4:30. No RSVP, but please bring a snack to contribute if you come. Plenty of lemonade, soft and hard drinks provided. Dinner will be what we gather from the snacks. If you can stay for dinner on Jan 1, I do need an RSVP. We are carnivores and Christians, but I think you can be accommodated.

Lots of  :-*, Luci

I don't want to be the killer, but I saved you.

Happy New Year and welcome to our home to all. (Wouldn't it be totally weird if someone showed up at out house and said, "Hi, I'm an eHellion and you invited me!"  Well, bring a dip (not your boyfriend!) and come on in!.

I've had where I've posted in a thread in a particular forum, then a day or so later, I'll post in another thread in the same forum; meanwhile I remain the last poster that first thread I posted in. Now two threads have me as the last poster, and all the threads that were between them get new posts until my threads are right together.

I was really glad to stumble on this thread. I'm glad to know I'm not the only one that feels this way.

What I try to imagine is that there are people on the board considering my viewpoint but not inspired to post because I do the same with other posters. But I have marvelled at my apparent 'thread-slaying' abilities.

I love this board because the posters are so polite, even when disagreeing, and trolling is not tolerated. It's my favorite one!

My one and only little complaint would be 'like' buttons. I used to admin my own smf forum (until we sold our site) and this just wasn't an option a few years ago.

But I hope this thread keeps going!

I don't think I've killed a thread yet, but I've had my "screaming into the abyss" posts.

You know when you make a post that you think is cool, or funny, or really makes a contribution and the discussion just passes it by.  ???

It's probably just a function of my social insecurity, but I always find myself second-guessing myself when that happens. My logical side points out that conversations shift and flow, other things come up and so forth. My shy, insecure side is convinced I put my foot in it and people are being too nice to say anything. :)

I do the same thing, but not that I put my foot in.  Instead I fear I've said something so moronic nobody can follow what I mean because it just hurts their brains so much.

I don't think I've killed a thread yet, but I've had my "screaming into the abyss" posts.

You know when you make a post that you think is cool, or funny, or really makes a contribution and the discussion just passes it by.  ???

It's probably just a function of my social insecurity, but I always find myself second-guessing myself when that happens.

I think it happens to everybody. I've posted information, then seen the same information again ten posts later, and people thanking the second poster. I'm sitting there going.....Did I post in invisible ink again?

Both happen to me. The last really hurts my feelings sometimes. Silly, isn't it?

I often see that happening to others and think, "Hey! Didn't you read that so-and-so just said the same thing?" I have several times gone back and quoted both together just to straighten the record out.

I respect and read everyone's posts on some subject, by the way, so you an not just writing into the wind as far as I'm concerned.

This post reminded me of a city that was dying. Tourism was lagging. They brought the community together in order to communicate citizen involvement . . . kinda like this thread.

I still worry about killing threads sometimes. Like when I post, and then it seems like no one posts for a really long time.

Bumping this as it seemed the appropriate place to confess that I feel like I've killed several threads today. :P I post something, and I imagine other people looking at it and going, "Yeah... not sure what to say that could follow THAT madness." The forum equivalent of an awkward silence and other people trying to subtly slip away to refill their drinks.

I was just wishing I could search for this thread so I could ask it how it is doing and wish it a Happy Thanksgiving.

It is getting too big now for me to call it Little Thread. Sigh. They grow up so quickly, don't they?

Edit: "to" is not "too". I hereby turn in my Grammar Nerd badge.  :-[

Exactly how big is 1497 in Thread terms?

Should we have a 1500th party for him? We have some pepperming stick ice cream! I'll dedicate a spoonfull to him.

I'm so excited and a little sad that our little one is growing so quickly, but I want to encourage him and wish him and all of his friends a Merry Christmas from our US home.

     I will start marinating corned beef on Valentine's Day so hope you can come help, as well as attend the St. Patrick's Day party in March.

Every year on President's Day, my mom and I have the same conversation.

Mom: You're off today, right?
Me: No, Mom.
Mom: You're not? But it's President's Day! It's a federal holiday!
Me: We don't get President's Day off, Mom. We get Martin Luther King Jr. Day and Spring Break, that's it until mid-May.
Mom: I don't understand that.
Me: We have this conversation every year, Mom. I also don't get Good Friday or Columbus Day off.
Mom: That's so strange.

In other news, stay warm, Thread! It's cold out there today.

Does anyone know where Thread is now? I need to plan his dye job and get his bed ready. I need to ask him if he eats home-corned beef and Tom's homemade bread.

He takes up so much more room than he used to!

He drinks, now. Did you know?

            For every wound there is a balm,
                For every sorrow, a cheer,
                    For every storm, a calm,
                        For every thirst, a beer.

Has anyone ever thought what thread looks like?  During the London Olympic Games, Ashara posted a smiley with a backpack.  He was examining a map of the Underground and scratching his head.  That's how I see our thread.

Anybody else ever feel like a thread-killer? Like, you post to a thread, maybe even just a small comment, and then NOBODY ELSE posts in that thread ever. Or at least, not for several days, when previously it seemed like new posts were appearing several times a day.

Paranoia? Lack of perspective? Lack of patience?

Posted somewhat in jest but also curiosity if anyone else has felt this way. Um, and if I AM doing something to kill threads for real... please let me know.

Lynn2000, I love reading your posts and look forward to them! Maybe no one else posts after you since you sum up everyone's thoughts so eloquently!
When I'm on my phone, I have to side sweep to see who is commenting, except for you, since your name is your tag line! I wish more people would do this!
When I introduce a topic, I always look forward to your take on the subject!

Thread is beyond mere appearances.  Which is a good thing because that green beer is totally tacky.

Why dye perfectly good beer green?  Never understood this compulsion, just because the calendar shows a specific date...

Hey, if Chicago and Tampa can dye their rivers green for the occasion, what's wrong with green beer? after all, good beer tends to be orange and we can't have that on St. Patrick's Day, can we?  ;)

Actually, the green bagels probably look worse than green beer.  That fad probably started when Robert Briscoe was elected mayor of Dublin, because Briscoe was Jewish and New Yorkers liked the idea.

The green bagels look hideous. One of my friends made green and white swirl cupcakes with orange frosting. They were beautiful!

We all need a little whimsy in our lives - it's silly, short termed, and fun.

If people can dye their hair green why not an occasional beer?

^ This.  While personally, I have never had a green beer...it doesn't bother me too much.  After all, it doesn't change the taste of the beer.
I'd rather have a Killians Red though.  ;)

I think thread may have dropped by our Father's Day barbeque. Not sure, but someone had an extra plate full of my mother's yummy baked beans and the meats that my Son-in-law fixed.

That sounds so much like our thread. He does enjoy his food.

I wonder if he has teamed up with the Travelocity Garden Gnome.

I think he stopped by and dropped off some baby quilt fabric after that. Are either of you missing some pink Minky that suddenly appeared?

Hm, Thread's looking a little singed.  Should have been more careful with those sparklers.  You're not supposed to light the whole box at once.   :o

Post by: Thipu1 on July 15, 2015, 10:50:09 AM
I think I saw thread in the grocery today.  Thread was stocking up on snacks to watch the Pluto shows on TV tonight. 

BTW, his eyebrows are growing back nicely from the sparkler accident.

I am watching Season 1 of "The Walking Dead".

I saw Thread there.  I am absolutely positive.

The Walking Thread? ;D

That would be an interesting premise for a show. "Killer Zombie Clothing! Your designer threads will be the death of you!"

It seems I killed the thread about rushing to get off an airplane.  ;) Yay me!

Yeah, it seems I have singlehandedly killed at least 2 threads......
now to see if this one has a longer lifespan....

Post by: Crazysauce on August 31, 2015, 01:54:48 PM
nope....killed another one.

Ha! Thread's not so easily killed off. He's travelled all over, been through drinking binges and a few fireworks displays now, and he's still kicking. ;D

That sounds like a Goosebumps episode, at least.

Thread is still getting untangled from that turkey costume he wore for Halloween.  I told him to take it off before Thanksgiving, but nooooo, Thread liked being a turkey.  Good thing he ducked before the head was whacked off.

Hm.  I think he ducked.  Oh dear.
Title: Re: Thread-Killing
Post by: Luci on December 29, 2015, 10:28:31 AM
I didn't see that anyone invited Thread for Christmas! He's pretty independent, so I'm sure he found a fun time somewhere.

Thread, we want you here New Year Eve. You don't even need to bring a snack! It will be pretty calm, so if you get a better offer, I'll understand. Or you can start out in the eastern hemisphere and wind down with us. Looking forward to seeing you and catching up.

If Thread is in our neighborhood on New Year's Day, he's certainly welcome to attend our traditional Brooklyn open house.

Today is Mardi Gras and, knowing our dear thread, it will probably be out celebrating in fine style.

Also, a shout-out to our members in New Zealand. Yesterday was Waitangi Day.

This thread ain't dead.  (I'm a poet and I don't know it.  My feet show it.  They're Longfellows!)

Sorry...! (Runs away.)

Post by: Thipu1 on April 08, 2016, 09:14:23 AM
Amen.  Young thread is very much alive, although that pun might have caused him some pain.

We only think thread is dead because it's been binge watching 'The Undead'.

Well done thread.

Ah, well... glad you're still around, Thread!

I looked back and noticed that so many who tried to kill Thread are no longer with us. I miss them, but am glad Thread is still galavanting around around. Valiant fellow!

Oh! Sweet Thread! I was just thinking about you!

We have moved since I last wrote to you and will probably not be having as many parties. I am still willing to help you any holiday you need us, and, as usual, will have plenty of green dye for St. Patrick's Day. Miss you . ❤️  🍺 🇮🇪
