I don't mind. I am used to it. But it does annoy me a bit.

yeah I know I have posted some way out there stuff regarding my dreams but some of it is incredible and some of my dreams have happened. I posted on page 2 of another thread and everyone ignored me. Now it is page 4 and no-one has even replied. Not even the OP so that sux.

oh well.

I am going to make a note to myself of all the Members that I contribute to in their threads, if they don't even have the courtesy to reply, then I will never respond to any of their other threads.

lol sounds immature doesn't it.

Sorry you are disappointed... but an online forum is the last place your should seek validation. (I know you already know this, but sometimes it's worth saying.)

Don't let the lack of online response take away from the importance of your personal life experiences.

I don't need validation... but don't you think a response is polite or courteous?

maybe cos I am older, I think differently...?

I think you're expecting an internet forum to behave as though everyone was sitting in your front parlour?

oh I am not referring to my own threads...

I am talking about when I post a reply in another Member's thread and they just ignore it. I think that is rude.
Bad manners. Maybe I am old school.

Just think of it like this.... Your brilliance is going over their heads...lol

I am not sure what you mean about the 'front parlour'.

if a person replies to one of your threads... isn't it good manners to reply?

To be frank, they don't have to respond if they don't want to. ATS is a large site, and it is to be expected that in some circumstances, people will simply overlook your post or take the information of it into account, without replying.

That said, just because you don't get a response, doesn't mean that you are being ignored. Sometimes i don't respond to others, even in my own threads. If i agree with others and can't contribute anything further in that particular line of discussion, i will star their post.

I don't think it rude of people to 'ignore' others. Members have outside lives and even live in different countries and timezones. They may continue to post on in the thread without replying to your particular post, but perhaps it is just a simple case of not knowing what to say, or not knowing how to contribute further to the discussion. At times, some people are particularly engaged in debates and conversations with another member, and focus their sole attention on that. It doesn't mean they are purposely ignoring you.

yes your right... most of the time I let it slide and don't care. But when I take a lot of time and effort to reply, then that upsets me. So perhaps we have all had to learn this and next time... we learn not to bother responding to some Members so we do not waste our time.

Well I do understand, but most of the time I find that in some threads, two or three people are posting much faster than me and they just Blow Right By Me Their So Fast On Those Keys, That My Post is Left Behind.

So, I often use Pictures which Pisses Off some poster's and that makes my day!

Haha, that's what i do when i don't get replies.


It doesn't phase me too much. Particularly because i know that i sometimes give others the same treatment...it is just that at times, i resort to starring another's post if i can't contribute anything further, or if i am running low on time. I don't do it in an attempt to enrage others, or for being purposely rude.

lol yes ... it is funny cos I remember posting a thread about 4 years ago having a little emotional tantrum cos someone didn't reply to me. One of the replies took me about an hour to research and was totally ignored. mwah.

It's not easy to reply to everyone who replies to your posts because there are often a few or more replies and it's about the flow of the thread and the discussion taking place.

People either resonate with what you're written or how you've written it, or they don't and may or may not reply. Instead of the reply you wanted, someone else might chime in, instead - not to mention there's always more conversation in a thread.

Why start a thread and not reply? What is the point of contributing?

posted on Oct, 12 2010

I only get emotional about this topic every 3 or 4 years. LOL

omg... I just found my other thread and so in future, when I get all huffy about this issue... I will just go and read my first thread.

a reply to: BasementWarriorKryptonite

yes you are also correct. All valid reasons and I know I have done the same.
I just had a little emotional tantrum.

I am not the only Member to feel peeved, especially when you have spent ages responding. LOL
Years back, I remember some Members would reply with another reply demanding a response.

Thurisaz...

I think it is important to remember something about this site. It is an incredibly busy place, the busiest webspace of its kind in the entire world. No where else on the web, that discusses the sort of topics, and the RANGE of topics discussed here, is busier, or has a larger membership.

Sometimes that means that a post in a thread will get buried, and inattentive posters may find themselves glossing over its presence. Sometimes it means that new topics are being posted so fast, that an entire thread may get buried, and new comment on it may dry up!

Given these factors, it is not wise to take it too personally when your posts do not get the attention you feel they deserve! Just take it in stride
