I tend to be ending a lot of conversations

Dan Gayle's picture

Looking at the main discussion page, it seems that I tend to end a lot of conversations. Meaning, I am the last one interested enough in a post to comment.

What does that bode?

Does that mean that I am turning people off, that my comments have doused any further attempts at conversation?

Or does it mean that I have posted the definitive word, and that no further conversation is necessary?

It seems most likely that you are just coming in as things are winding down like arriving at a party at 2am. Well, some parties...

That seems like it happens to me, too. I think it's one of those things that, because you only notice when it happens and not when it doesn't, it seems like it happens more often than it actually does.

That makes sense. I don't pay attention to how many threads end on a Mark Simonson comment. Why should I? If I was, that would actually be kind of creepy!

I'm tempted to drop out at this point, on the chance that no one else adds anything, but that would be mean. :-)

I hear the tune Happy Trails to You... and I see Roy Rogers and Dale Evans riding off in to the sunset. Is it o.k. to post last so you guys won't feel bad : ?

Hmm. I have a feeling ten years from now this thread will still be going.

Can you hurry up and finish that "r" in "Script". Thanks : )

Too late. That's Tommy Thompson, and he's no longer with us.

And a talent he was!

Being a lettering artist I should have realized which Tommy Thompson you referred to…
Instead my thoughts leaped completely out of context to one of my favorite American old-timey musicians who also passed away a few years back.

BTW… I'm really not trying to be the last post.

I meant the former governor of Wisconsin. He was a wiz with a crow quill pen. Not many people know that. I should look up this lettering Tommy Thompson guy.

I only joined this site last week and I am already having that weird sensation. Glad to know I'm not the only one. I thought I might have riddled the forums with faux pas and scared everyone off...

Maybe that is just the Long and the short of it? :-)

I think most of us have left. (I'm not really here anymore; I'm just poking my head in.)

Dan Gayle's picture

What's really sad is that this post is getting more conversation than the ones that I was interested in continuing, but that all ended on one of my comments :)

If it's any consolation, I'm pretty good at killing threads, too.

Is that like buckshot, or more like machine-gun fire?

Here I thought it was my lack of knowledge and savvy which was killing threads by the simple act of my reading them. Yes, the power over the internets is mine! [evil laugh]

ebensorkin's picture

It wasn't faux pas it was real pas.

This is a Jim Woodring reference...
