Ultimately all things must die even threads.
There is a limit to pertinent and relevant and even blatantly off topic information that once everything is touched on there just is nothing left to
In my own observations even the most relevant and thought provoking threads have at best about a three day limit before they reach the saturation
point of where everything that could possibly be said on the subject pro and con is touched upon, debated, and then debated some more.
After three days if a thread is still going its usually limping on by way of dysfunctional personality attacks between a couple to a handful of
members over some trivial point of contention between them, that at those points centers more on what those posters don’t like about the other
poster’s presentation style, techniques, or sources.
Some really good threads garner very little interest at all because there is no emotional hot button in it. Some really good threads garner very
little interest because the subject matter is of either to deep, or too out there nature for a lot of members to even think of a response or want to
add one. Some threads garner very little interest because the subject is so open and shut there is next to nothing to debate about it or add to it.
If you like the challenge of posting to a purely intellectual thread with no emotional hot button, and issues that you either have to some very
significant depth of knowledge or imagination to touch upon, or like adding a tidbit to a thread where the Original Poster or Article or Video pretty
much says it all you just can’t expect a whole lot of attention or accolades in that.
The good news is though if you like reading everything because you like learning about everything, then your time was well worth it.
The bad news is that if you are just simply bored and lonely and looking for someone to interact with, then you just end up writing responses for
yourself, to yourself pretty much like I am now.
