I need advice from my seasoned ATS friends. It seems to me that every single time I respond to a thread there are never any replies after that. I have came to the following conclusions..

1) I arrive at the thread too late, after everyone has already said what they have to say.

or

2) I am a thread killer.

I am trying so hard to be an active part of ATS and present knowledgeable well thought out responses, but it never goes anywhere. No one ever debates me. Ever.

No one ever says...you were wrong and here is why. All I get is **crickets**


I do not want to be the ATS thread killer. Advice? Anyone??

Embrace it! Look up Threadkillers Anonymous and join. I'd post a link but I don't have the time right now.

That's a thread that's been going on for a long time now on ATS btw... it hasn't been able to be killed yet.

You are absolutely wrong! I dare you to provide hard evidence that you are indeed a thread killer. I have seen posts after yours in a few threads and I demand proof. Pics or it didn't happen! (Feel better now?
)

Funny! I agree and I usually stay away from those. IT is the ones I am really interested in that really bothers me when I kill it without trying.

Not EVERY thread...I exaggerated a little. But enough to make me go hmmmm.

You really made me laugh! Thank you!!

Probably just jumping in too late, and maybe it is because of the type of threads you are choosing? Some topics are discussed more than others...

I know this seems like strange advice from someone with so little posts but I have actually been here a while and forgot my login so need to start again...

Btw try posting threads with really good info and getting crickets, had that a few times now! lol

I certainly wouldn't take it personal...

You will have a row with someone soon enough I'm sure lol

Oh it isnt even when I disagree that it happens, it is when someone asks a question and I dig for the info and post it then..NOTHING.

I'm sure we've all been guilty of being thread killers before. There is no shame, we are special!
Okay, maybe special ed. but we try doggone it!

That happens to me sometimes as well. Most of the time it's because I am responding to threads way too late or, I notice that the thread itself is garbage and I feel sorry for the person so I try to write a little something to let them know someone stopped by.

No worries.

Sometimes when one states the plain and painful obvious - there's nothing left to do but reflect.

And when one is wide awake and has a sharp view of reality, it often causes those around them to pause and reflect.

As they should...

I think all the previous posters advice was likely better, but if you're a teensy bit egocentric and a little more delusional - like me - just nod your head at your MyATS menu and say, "Yes, I said that well. I see why you have no response, ATS. Thank you, I am fabulous."
