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
You are only young once. After that you have to think up some other excuse.

And I thought it was just me...

Seriously, when I first joined, it seemed to me that everytime I replied the thread would die.

I am pretty sure that wasn't entirely true though...
Maybe he's caught in the legend
maybe he's caught in the mood
Maybe these maps and legends
Have been misunderstood

The map that you painted didn't seem real
He just sings whatever he's seen
Point to the legend, point to the east
Point to the yellow, red, and green

This is one thread where I'm repeating what everyone else said...

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...

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

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.

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.

Put me down with the "I thought I was the only one!" crowd.  Maybe we should band together and form the Etiquette Hell Thread Assassin Squad!

So, you're saying, the world doesn't, in fact, revolve around me?  :o  And I thought I was killing off the threads.
Just because you're disappointed in me doesn't mean I did anything wrong.

I've killed a few threads.

Glad it isn't just me...

I'll be the one to kill it. :P

That's true, it would be nice if the queen dragon could actually breathe fire, but heck, those flamethrowers look pretty darn cool. ;)

And there's the whole...innocent manipulation of the Weyrleader, too...  >:D :D
