I've always thought of doing a thread like this and I'd been thinking about above title.
Then again being a protestant, confession is not costumary to my culture, would be to much of a intimidation...
...the detached version of faith I was brought up on in the wellordered self-righteous hyginic society of my origine, hardly leaves room for
self-admission. They do more in repression there.
Like most of us I can identify with nagging on vanity here. As already suggested threads are just as much about the information value as the
discussion. Of course your ego feels best by lots of resplies, but as also been pointed out, there may be nothing to ad, or the the informations are
all new to the board.
What it's about is psychology. The right title to connect the conspiracy synapsies of your fellow members and the right formulations to spur/provoce
commemnts, you'll be sure of success. And let's be honest, the longest thread are often those where members disagreeing resorts to more or less
personal biggering irrelevant to the thread topic.
But it's seen to go on for pages, and when a mod comes in with threats of banning or closing it really starts to become exiting. A simple strategy if
you want your threads running, is to attract some outstanding antis (there are a few) to whatever the topic. Works especially with GW, immigrant and
Muslim issues. It is not a way I recommend, it's just the way it works.
Cause let's be honest, even to a board like ATS, it is the tabloid thing that seems to be appealing.
