A comment that cases further discussion to end. It's usually unintentional.

Or it can be a person who has a tendency to kill threads.

Is it on topic or off topic?

Does it add to the discussion, or take away from?

Those are some of the things I consider when reading threads.

Also the friendly nature of the posters. Some are more friendly than others. The back and forth give and take flow depends on the conversation between posters.

Threads aren't really dead IMO unless someone hijacks them deliberately by being contentious, argumentative, or divisive. Even then not necessarily.

It's a judgment call.

...when a poster comes across as a non-conformist...that is, when one challenges the current narrative; (whatever that is), those individuals will be challenged, and looked at for any sign of combative or hostile conduct. Then, they will be shit-canned; (deleted). Have a nice day. No room for alternative thought............apparently.

I'm told that in the 1960s, many if not most Hippies wanted so much to be recognized as nonconformists that they conformed assiduously to the rebel image, wearing the same clothes as those whom they sought to emulate and parroting the same ideas while also trying desperately to offend their parents and others against whom it was fashionable to revolt.

When such transparent efforts at nonconformity elicited derision, the self-styled "rebels" often reacted with anger and hostility and combative behavior, which served only to highlight how desperately they craved society's approval. Fortunately for them, however, some of the disgruntled took comfort from the thought that historically great men frequently failed to garner the public adulation their genius deserved.

Do you think Nietzche felt something like that at Lake Orta? I suspect he did.

You don't change your clothes, are a fan of Frank Zappa, and constantly top your own posts. That is radical stuff.

You have fully demonstrated the extent of your non-conformist genius.

The need to be “different” is ever present in our society-not just in the sixties...

Most recently, observe the rebellious non-con formers all getting tattoos to show their desire to be “different”...oh, and pull up your pants, dude...

Exactly.

See also those who believe that global warming is a hoax, that vaccines lead to autism, and that having one's posts deleted for abuse are related to "thread killing."

In your words, people need to pull up their pants.

ETA: Thanks, NG.

...be careful! Over 60 cans a day can be fatal...please...dial it back a bit! Think of the children.........

"Lethal dose for caffeine is cited as between 5 and 10 grams (1), so it should require around 62 Red Bulls to kill you (calculated based on 5 grams)."

That used to be my RfM screen name! I had an uncanny ability to stop conversation in its with some inane remark.

However, after I read apologist Michael Ash try to spin the "horses and chariots" bullcrap in the BoM, I was reborn...

I've killed a few threads. I like to think that my comments are so brilliant they can't be topped, lol.

The wise and powerful heartbroken has spoken - no need for further comment! Ha ha ha!

Yes, I am being sarcastic! You may continue with your comments, lol.

Honestly, it's me with my church experiences that are so strange that 90% of members/ex-members are unable to relate to.

I got certified in thread killing. I went through a whole thing here where every time I commented, the discussion ended. So I had to ask to be released.
