Once upon a time, @deep-blue famously announced that getting 50+ replies was a sign that you were doing a good job in the thread you had created.
However I create some absolutely garbage threads, proper disgusting stuff, yet they’ll often still clock over the 50 reply mark, maybe only just but somehow they do.
Are people just less cautious about their replies nowadays? My theory is that since most of the trolly-types no longer post here, people aren’t as guarded about responding to a thread, but I may be wrong in this.
Do you feel more comfortable replying to threads these days?
- More than I used to
- Less than I used to
- About the same
I also think that some users are absolute champions at making people realise that you don’t have to have something interesting to say to justify responding to a thread. This is the motto I live by.
