Thread Habits: Do Certain Users Cause You To Click/Avoid A Thread?

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Lately I've become more aware of my SF reading habits. Aside from clicking on new topics that interest me or old threads I check up on I've noticed that I weigh the user name as I would the topic title. A few examples:

-New thread with a topic I'm not interested in/neutral to: If it's started by someone I consider to be coherent then that great increases the chances of checking in on it versus a user name I don't recognize/have apathy for/loathe.

-Old thread I've checked out in the past: Pretty much the same deal.

-Started by Conne/kwilk: I ask myself to begin with why it wasn't just started in Dumb Threads; if it is already in DT then I ask myself what I'm doing in DT.

-Mixed bag: Last posted by someone I don't despise so I check to join in and help. Last posted by someone I despise so I check to harass/incite/put in place/bully/etc.

Well, I've said it before but, with that current avatar of his, I will definitely click on any thread where Nantucket Red posts.

I've been doing this forever if the thread is started by/or last post is by an ally/foe then I'm curious enough to click on it, even if the topic has no interest to me then there are some threads I wont click on only because the last person to post is someone I find completely uninteresting in every way

Cool thread.

Now when everyone sees that I have posted in here they will avoid it like the plague. I have successfully killed your thread.

(at GS) Yeah, that's pretty much how it is for me. The topic has to be really, really boring (i.e., located in MC/CE) for me to see a friend/foe and not click. x, I try to avoid you at all costs but you routinely follow me. Last weekend I was on a bus coming home from the beach when this blond sat next to me. I told her I was from LA, she told me she was from "outside Atlanta, in the Lilburn area." I got up and walked home.

I don't really care who started the thread or what the topic is. I click, skim, and then respond or choose not to respond accordingly. Also, there are members who start threads who just don't exist to me, so in those instances, I won't click or skim.

you should have asked her to take her top off for you...just to see if she had the matching "mark" on her chest

I've heard it's really just a branding they do once you hit 18.

I think you overthink this. If I like the topic I read. Sometimes people surprise me.

Clearly you were lying in the "misanthrope" thread.

I think the fact that whodini didn't close the deal proves she was hot.

My thought process when seeing other Americans here: 1) Are they hippies? 2) Seriously, what's wrong with them? 3) Ok, maybe they're just studying/teaching abroad. That's fine. 4) Repeat #2. 5) Are they cute enough? Fine. No real names. But to answer your question, she would have been cute had she not been chubby and covered in sweat. And LOL @ kwilk. You couldn't close an automatic sliding door.

What - you read what I post? The misanthrope thread is in DT's which is therefore subject to embellishment.
