A strange occurrance seems to have happened in the last week or so. I posted a debate-generating thread as I enjoy a good debate. I believe in the
statements I made, so with that prerequiste satisfied, I don't see any problem with starting a thread for this purpose. All was going well until the
middle of last week with many members disputing my views. It was not unusual for me to check the thread and have 5 or 6 different posts to reply
However mid last week I responded to the usual 5 or 6 posters who disagreed with my stance and awaited their response. Now bearin mind that the
majority of respondants were continually responding back to my posts within hours, so I ahd no reason to think this time would be any different. It
has now been about 5 days since I made that post and still no replies. I am at a loss to explain why.
I'm sure my rebuttle wasn't particularly convincing to them and my stance was definitely a most unpopular one, so to assume that they conceded is
just ridiculous, especially considering the immense amount of material available to them to dispute my stance. I could understand one or maybe two
members feeling that they were talking to a brick wall with me and that I was no use trying to reason with, but not all of them spontaneously at the
same time. I have no idea what happened. Does this seem strange to anyone else?
Since then it seems that I have received little if any responses on any other threads I have posted on regardless of if they were mine or not. I
suppose the message in that is "Beware if I post on your thread!" because it seems I have unwittingly become the ultimate threadkiller.
Ironically, if anyone responds to this thread I must conclude that I'm being paranoid, and if they don't, who knows how long I will remain in the
ATS Isolation chamber?
