Subject: BS: Thread Killers
From: Tattie Bogle
Date: 29 Jan 18 - 04:05 PM

Just wondering....how many threads have you killed? (Not talking about threads closed down by the moderators). What I mean is when yours is the last post on any thread. You thought your last post was so witty and ascerbic that it would be followed by loads of equally humorous or educational answers. You saved it to your personal page, but it doesn't rise to the surface again for another 1- years if you're lucky.
Or you've given the answer that everyone was looking for, even pm-ed people who were desperate for song words, and.......total silence?
Just 'cos it seems to happen to me a lot!

I say something that I just know is brilliant and inspiring and ultimately wise, and nobody posts anything in response. The more brilliant and inspiring and wise my posts are, the more likely they are to kill a thread.

He was like that.

We should be glad there is no Facebook 'like' feature here.
We all like an ego stroke but were fine without it. Wisdom is seldom rewarded, it is just accepted as true. I try to give kudos to some posts but it gets corny after awhile. Besides, tuning in just to get an ego snack gets to be shallow and addictive.

So we feel self doubt without a response but that's OK, it is better than feeling 'like envy'.

Personally, if I'm not bitching I'm probably alluding to something obscure that amuses me. Sounding preachy is something I try to avoid .

While my aim is to be original when I hear my ideas echo back to me from future voices it feels satisfying.

I tell myself the swme as BWL. Isn't there a name for the unresolvable doubt one feels after killing a thread? So-and-so's dilemma, or something?

What bothers me more is trying, sometimes repeatedly, to kill a thread that I can't stand but can't ignore, and it just keeps grnding away.

Thoughts and behavior can be modified by social media and the clever application of rewards. It happens here but not intentionally. On Twitter and Facebook it is deliberate in many cases. There have been cases of psychological experimentation by sending specific reporting to specific audiences to discover opinion manipulation effectiveness.

Our Id knows better but our ego is a real sucker.

While they're not dead, the there are a few hammer-and-tongs arguers, duos whose lengthy point-counterpoint contributions grow like mold in the bottom of some threads that no one else will touch. Those are as good as dead. Anything about Israel. Most of the British political ones.

Yes, I know the question had to do with a sudden lack of interest in threads that started on a reasonable topic, but the other answer to that question is the threads that everyone else ignores (except the combatants).

Then there are threads that have dropped out of sight for ages but come to life again when bots or spammers find and post spam in them. Before the spam post can be removed someone jumps in and revives the old discussion and the conversation continues from five, ten, fifteen years ago. Only if you look at the behind-the-scenes moderator view of the thread do you see the one (or more) spam posts that brought it back to the surface.

Haha Raggytash, everyone seems to like my husband. He's very smiley and gentle, and helps old folk in the supermarket, people in wheelchairs etc. At work I'm told he trundles all the very heavy wheelie bins outside for the less-muscular cleaners.

"my mum used to make The Best rabbit pie!"
I can't eat rabbit - a hang-up from the time a friend's mother fed me a rabbit pie which had been badly prepared and full of broken bones
If I get a small bone in my mouth I'm ill for hours after
I'm sure there must be a named phobia for that
Philosophically I am a vegetarian - horrified by the idea of killing living creatures (except Everton supporters), but as most Northern English vegitarians would have starved to death before they reach the age of five, I've never been ably to practice my philosophy.

Sometimes, I wish I could post in the middle of a thread. I think it's because I don't have confidence in what I have to say and I think it will bore everyone to death and kill the thread, to boot. If my post were in the middle of the thread, it wouldn't be so damn obvious that I'm the one who killed it.

You may be able to verify my warnings regarding the use of mass hypnosis for nefarious means has been at least a 12 year project on this forum. No one here has ever told me they get it. So I will resign from all my warnings that have either been disbelieved or ignored.

Well, no, Senoufou, the cats died - and now we have rats in the attic, so it's a tradeoff. The cats were a mess to clean up after, though.All we have to do with the rats, is take them out of the traps and bury them. My wife won't let me put them in the trash can, so I let HER bury them and do her little rat rituals...

But did I ever tell you how cute my dogs are? I make up songs to sing to them and do a little dance, and they think I'm very entertaining and dance, too - and then they demand a treat, OR ELSE!

Why don't humans think I'm entertaining?

Sonnet 43

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of being and ideal grace.
I love thee to the level of every day's
Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light.
I love thee freely, as men strive for right.
I love thee purely, as they turn from praise.
I love thee with the passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood's faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints. I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life; and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death.

Sonnet 07/05/02         Bhan Sidhe                DCLXXXVIII

It was an odd noise that I heard, this night:
Not quite a scream, but far more than a gasp,
From moonless darkness, with no stars in sight.
What is this coldness, that my insides clasp?
Why do I weaken, hearing sound so far
Only the echo reaches ear, yet mind
Is twisted from intent? How can I bar
Gate of imagination to wyrd bind?
I fall, boneless with fright, and sweat breaks out;
Bowels turn to water with despair. I weep,
To lose all. I moan, but cannot give shout
To more than whimper, nor my reason keep.
She passes, and I live! Yet dare not rise
For fear of seeing Death within her eyes.

CONCERNING THE INFANTICIDE, MARIE FARRER                by Bertolt Brecht (MacColl?s translation)

Marie Farrer, born in April,
No marks, a minor, rachitic, both parents dead,
Allegedly up to now without police record,
Committed infanticide, it is said,
As follows: in her second month, she says,
With the aid of a barmaid, she did her best
To get rid of her child with two douches,
Allegedly painful but without success.
BUT YOU, I BEG YOU, CHECK YOUR WRATH AND SCORN,
FOR MAN NEED HELP FROM EVERY CREATURE BORN.

She then paid out, she says, what was agreed
And continued to lace herself up tight.
She also drank liquor with pepper mixed in it
Which purged her but did not cure her plight.
Her body distressed her as she washed the dishes,
It was swollen now quite visibly.
She herself says, for she was still a child,
She prayed to Mary most earnestly.
BUT YOU, I BEG YOU, CHECK YOUR WRATH AND SCORN,
FOR MAN NEEDS HELP FROM EVERY CREATURE BORN.

Her prayers, it seemed, helped her not at all.
She longed for help.
Her trouble made her falter And faint at early Mass.
Often drops of sweat
Broke out in anguish as she knelt at the altar.
Yet until her time came upon her
She still kept secret her condition.
For no one would believe such a thing could happen,
That she, so unenticing, had yielded to temptation.
BUT YOU, I BEG YOU, CHECK YOUR WRATH AND SCORN,
FOR MAN NEED HELP FROM EVERY CREATURE BORN.

And, on that day, she says, when it was dawn,
As she washed the stairs, it seemed a nail
Was driven into her belly.
She was wrung with pain.
But still she secretly endured her travail.
All day long while hanging out the laundry,
She wracked her brains until she got it through her head
She had to bear the child, and her heart was heavy.
It was very late when she went to bed.
BUT YOU, I BEG YOU, CHECK YOUR WRATH AND SCORN
FOR MAN NEEDS HELP FROM EVERY CREATURE BORN.

She was sent for again as soon as she lay down.
Snow had fallen and she had to go downstairs.
It went on till eleven. It was a long day.
Only at night did she have time to bear.
And so, she says, she gave birth to a son.
The son she bore was just like all the others.
She was unlike the others but for this
There is no reason to despise this mother,
YOU TOO, I BEG YOU, CHECK YOUR WRATH AND SCORN
FOR MAN NEEDS HELP FROM EVERY CREATURE BORN

With her last strength, she says, because
Her room had now grown icy cold, she then
Dragged herself to the latrine and there
Gave birth as best she could (not knowing when)
But toward morning. She says she was already
Quite distracted and could barely hold
The child for snow came into the latrine
And her fingers were half numb with cold.
YOU TOO, I BEG YOU, CHECK YOUR WRATH AND SCORN
FOR MAN NEEDS HELP FROM EVERY CREATURE BORN

Between the latrine and her room, she says,
Not earlier, the child began to cry until
It drove her mad so that, she says,
She did not cease to beat it with her fists
Blindly for some time till it was still.
And then she took the body to her bed
And kept it with her there all through the night.
When morning came she hid it in the shed.
BUT YOU, I BEG YOU, CHECK YOUR WRATH AND SCORN,
FOR MAN NEEDS HELP FROM EVERY CREATURE BORN.

Marie Farrer, born in April,
An unmarried mother, convicted, died in
The Meissen penitentiary.
She brings home to you all men's sin.
You, who bear pleasantly between clean sheets
And give the name "blessed" to your womb's weight,
Must not damn the weakness of the outcast,
For her sin was black but her pain was great.
THEREFORE, I BEG YOU, CHECK YOUR WRATH AND SCORN
FOR MAN NEEDS HELP FROM EVERY CREATURE BORN

Jim Carrol , You have touched the electrified third rail of abortion.

It has been said that no aborted fetus ever goes on to do anything.
Again there are exceptions, after all this is earth.
There have been survivors. What would you expect the survivors would say?
What do you think an abortion survivor would say about the procedure, rights and laws? I would say the mother holds all the cards but society pretends it is the dealer of the card game.

The question of pregnancy termination ("the term abortion having been hi-jacked by the fundamentalists, should be incarcerated in the same prison as 'lunatic" and "spastic") " and all its fundamentalist connotations, is deserving a of a thread of its own (no doubt to be closed by that same fundamentalism)

To me, it was more about rejection, suffering, moral condemnation and extreme poverty. And being driven beyond endurance by overwhelming circumstances. The abortion question is almost a secondary issue, though obviously a driving factor in the tragedy of her life.

Jim I am not a fundamentalist yet I am an abortion survivor. If the word is politically tinged like 'illegal alien' so be it but being only a survivor is already taken by holocaust victims or reality show contestants. Without exception we are all born survivors of war, plagues and an inherently violent universe. We simply differ by variations of certain abundancies and deficiencies.
I am neither defined by a single experience or inclined to identify with victimhood. We are simply out here in surprising numbers, a testament to the tenacity of life like a flower in cracked concrete.

"Jim I am not a fundamentalist yet I am an abortion survivor."
Lucky old you
I know of women who died here because they were denied a life-saving termination because "we live n a Christian country"
Several children over the last decade or so were forced to go through pregnancy despite the fact they had been raped - by family members or strangers
One particularly nasty case involved an eleven year old daughter of itinerant land-workers who had been awarded two sexually transmitted diseases by her rapist yet was forced to undergo a life-threatening birth and told by her church to "embrace her martyrdom"
Pregnancy termination is not about the likelihood off survival or future health of foetuses - it involves all sorts of often heartrending decisions
If society is happy to send millions of young people to die on the battlefield or turn refugees back to murderous regimes or wars or certain starvation... or refuse to maintain a health sevice which is at present killing patients off through neglect and under-funding - then there has to be room for women to choose not give birth - up to an agreed point.
We are still dominated by a Religion that covered up clerical child rape for many decades, still regards contraception as evil and is at present opposing law reforms that will enable Ireland to arrive at somewhere in the mid twentieth century compared to the rest of the civilised world
I think it high time that such people learned to stay out of other people's bedrooms - that goes for all such voyeurs

Jim,
There is nothing wrong with being the voice for those who did not survive. In fact there is a gallantry.
Instead of using the tone of anger and fear alone, for those who can not scream for themselves, I suggest you reserve a tone for us who are still alive and are sustained and motivated by love. That is - Unless you have Asperger's syndrome and have an inability to relate to flesh and blood people.

Er...just a moment Donuel. My niece has Aspergers syndrome and is the most caring, kind and loving person I know. Just last week she was so sad to see a homeless woman begging in the snow outside her place of work that she paid for her to have a night in a B&B, to enjoy the warmth and use a shower etc. She booked the woman in herself and made sure she was comfortable. I was so proud of her.
Where do you get the idea from that Aspergers people have no ability to feel for others?
Regarding termination of pregnancy, I'm in the pro-choice camp. It's a woman's choice (ANY pregnant woman of ANY age) whether to proceed or not with a pregnancy. Terminations should be available under safe conditions with no stigma attached to the situation.

"There is nothing wrong with being the voice for those who did not survive."
I didn't say there was
We are talking about controlled termination of pregnancy fort many reasons - nobody is specifying getting rid of a child because it might not be health - certainly I'm not
Sex has many functions, procreation being only one of them
"you did not ask, my mom survived too."
I did not ask because I have no idea what your personal circumstances are
Ending pregnancy within a restricted period is, as far as I'm concerned is a permissible act on the basis of the information that is privy to us
The same with rape, incest and a threat to the mother's life (in most circumstances)
It's a bit of a a cliché but modern society has decided that a woman has the right to control over her own body - again, up to a point - I've no problem with that
IT is she who has to bear the child and usually, it is she who has to bear the responsibility for it - as a rule, men don't and are usually the ones to walk away from a difficult (or them) relationship
Society, by and large, leaves the burden on the parent - usually the woman
Usually. it is men who pontificate about it and draw up the rules -
In thee case of the churches - the most vociferous and influential groups, it is largely elderly, supposedly celibate men at that.
I'm with Sen 100% on this
My empathy comes from my humanism (with a small "m")
I came from a poor, but caring family environment where we were all loved equally - but we were surrounded by families who weren't that lucky - 'sink' estates tended to be like that, largely because of the fact that they were sited in the most deprived areas

The time is right for an atheist 'minister' to lead the flock of non believing church goers to greener truthful pastures. Not to an old morality but a morality everyone can feel 'Me too' and feel dignity again.

To not follow a figure but agree with a Moral person who is truthful.
In time more will agree. The pillars of democracy that are being nearly toppled will be held up by the hands of the new truthful.

The choice between criminal political religion OR join the truth movement will be an easy choice, even for some of the old believers.

The stumbling block of abortion&guns will have to be resolved for this reformation to succeed. This where I need more clever minds than mine to seek a good resolution. As you see most people will fall silent and actually help the transformation and mutual concessions.

The social movement of 'me too', truthism and resist is breaking open a crack in the concrete wall of oppression and victimization.
The time is as ripe as it gets to have a mutually beneficial revolution.
