Life and death of a thread

I got this on another forum but found it to be pretty profound. Got a good laugh but also some thoughtful moments. Easily adapted to many threads where the OP has an issue with ????

Kudos to a poster named Steve.


I may have missed a step or two here, but this is what it might seem like. Maybe this could be a sticky so newbies to the forum can set expectations. 😃 Sharing so we might have a laugh at ourselves (we've all been one of these responses at one time or another so no offense intended!).

Life and death of a thread

OP: asks for opinion on best (thing)

#1: welcoming response. Warning of opinions to come. Encouraging salutation.

#2: welcoming response. Sharing of strongly held opinion. Encouraging salutation. Happy emoticon.

#3: sharing of strongly held opinion.

#4: sharing of strongly held opinion.

#5: sharing of strongly held opinion. Challenge of #3's opinion. Insertion of "brows" emoticon.

#6: sharing of strongly held opinion. Encourage trip to Canada.

#7: offer empirical evidence against Canadian solution.

#8: warn of legal liability for going against strongly held opinion. Relate anecdote from authoritative friend/relative.

#9: request official citation for claim in #8.

#10: hurl insult at #9.

#11: blame China.

#12: insert hyperlink to authoritative PDF. Include parable supporting position.

#13: recommend getting back to OP. Note OP no longer seems to be involved in discussion. Warn of mod action.

#15: recommend each person decide for themselves. Wish happy camping.

#16: hurl insult at authors of replies 4-14.

#17: switch mod_hat=on: close thread

Thank you for your informative post. I for one really enjoyed it, but I am not sure others will. Don't be discouraged by the negative posts.

Thanks again!

In other words, online comment threads are a perfect representation of the human (societal) condition. Thus it has always been, and thus it will always be. Cheers.

Looks like I am #7 so...

A trip to Canada is absolutely the worst possible idea due to the scientific fact that global warming exists and Canada will soon be just like the Sahara desert. See http://facts.us.gov/globalwarming/In...dOtherNonsense for proof.
