I've noticed several threads that 'grow long legs' are the worst posts, IMHO. I'll check Recent Posts and get so tired of seeing several
particular OPs that just don't die off. They will contain post after post of mostly the same opinion being beaten right to death. My friend, so often
in life it comes down to quality, not quantity. There are probably a lot of really good OPs that fade away with a whimper for many reasons: time of
day, lack of a really self-serving misleading sensationalist headline (so obnoxious!), or maybe it's the 12th OP on one subject so it's been done to
I've noticed several OP's submit their headline & text then --poof-- vanish from the thread. No response to the contributors, no feedback, nothing.
Sure I understand all ATS'ers have wonderfully rich & full lives away from the keyboard (lol) but I do think if someone is going to get on a horse,
they should ride it.
Hang in there and keep submitting. Meanwhile, maybe this is a good time to look in the mirror and find out why this form of approval from total
strangers means so much to you. No insult intended, not at all. I've simply found in life that people who take the time to contemplate their own
means and motives sometimes come to a greater understanding of themself and the world around us. This is an opportunity to grow.
Most people may like to see themselves rise & shine but in reality the bulk of us lead quiet, dull little lives. Millions and millions of people
across the country love to play baseball but very few make it onto the field wearing a pro sports team uniform.
