Should be penalty for abandoning/derailing the very topic you have
brought up. It's bad parenting.
On another issue, I can't for the life of me remember how you 'Flag'
a post; have done it in the past, but now can't see what to click on!

Took me awhile too to figure it out. Click next to FLAGS at the top left of beginning of the thread. and to the right click that, then it be red and ask if you want to unflag it.

I expect the OP to star every post I make in his/her thread.

In real time, this sort of behavior is rather like someone starting a conversation face to face. Than before they have any reply to their question or comment they just turn around and walk away leaving one standing there with a dumfounded look, and thinking, what was that all about. One just has to shrug it off and carry on. Somewhere there is an intelligent conversation taking place that one might be interested in joining.
I'm busy this morning. But I'll be around again sooner or later. Have a good one. Later S.

I myself have not started to many threads ...
for many reasons ...
1 being I guess not fully understanding thread parenting etiquette...
the other being not having the time to create some bad arse slayer69 thread ...
I always thought you were just supposed to nurture the Topic for a couple of pages
until it matured with other members and takes on a life of its own.... then moves out when its 18

I think it also has to do with the thread topic IMO. I make threads sometimes and I don't want to respond nor do I care if anyone else does. I just have something to share or rant about and I want to be heard. If I get a realize cool if not so what and stars and flags are dumb dumb dumb I don't even understand them. It's like I didn't wet my pants all day in pre-K and the teacher put a gold star on the board for it
