It is not just you masonicon, it happens to many if not most, take a look around pages 2-3 on the recent posts list, you will see.
It's not that your threads are abandoned, there are several reasons, some people just don't comment, where you live is a big one recently, the worst
reason IMO is some people seek leadership in the discussion from popular members, some topics fly over the heads of some (understanding), when your
thread slips down the posts list onto lower pages, they are unseen, or people have seen the topic before, there are many reasons.
Don't take it as you personally are being ignored, that is not the case, look through as many posts and threads as you can, you will see, some even
believe that threads with very low comments or flags and stars, are some of the best threads posted, not all but many of them.
I have seen some threads with dozens of pages of replies, and wondered why, and then seen fantastic threads with 2 pages which should still be
running, and thought it a shame.
You will also find a lot of the more popular threads have a discussion going on between 2 or 3 members, usuall with differing opinions, or a bit of
tension, they always seem to attract a lot of members who like that kind of thing.
But don't think it's because of you as an individual, you will go nuts, if you start thinking like that, it will put you off posting, remember your
opinion is just as important than that of any one else, no matte3r if it upsets someone or not, it is still valued by most of us.
