Why do people start a thread and then disappear?

Postby Derny Driver » Fri Nov 15, 2013 5:18 pm

Why do people ask a question and then never repost / reply after members spend time typing up detailed answers?
Maybe they ...a) are rude b) don't like the answer they got c) forgot they started the thread?

Maybe they are a professional internet super-troll. They do it to drum up some business for their youtube channel and/or web site. They troll so many web sites that they forget that on the forum they are almost universally dispised. :lol:

For the other ones... all of the above?

I think that because all threads go OT so quickley, It's not worth following up beyond reply number one or two

Because they have Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. And because eating thirty bananas a day leads you to spend all your time in the smallest room in the house.

My uni student boarder is on the banana loading diet. Now I know why he's using a dunny roll per day. It had me baffled. I thought he was possibly a scruncher rather than a folder ...

In our modern world of the self-absorbed and self-centered, many would be blithely unaware that it's good manners to acknowledge the responses.

If they even know what manners are.

I blame sogood. He comments on every thread and scares people off. Who the hell has time to make so many posts? This guy must live on the forums, or he's a dangerous stalker. Either way, it's sogood fault. /thread.
