When you start a thread.....

When you start a thread.....

.... do you feel an ownership of it?

This is going on from something Slipper said about not being around enough to add to threads once if he started one.

Once I start a thread, I don't feel like I have to monitor it and I also don't feel that anyone who starts a thread has "special rights" in that thread. (not that I'm implying that's what Slipper meant!)

Am I just not aware of board etiquette? Or does anyone else feel the same?

Don't be ashamed if you do get all terroritorial you can admit it!

No, I don't feel I own it.

I just see it as throwing open any new topic of conversation - let it ride. Some topics inspire a lot of interest, some don't. End of, no shame - at least you tried.

Yes, actually I do :devil: . In fact, in the dark days when there were people I loathed posting on here I used to get most miffed if they posted in one of my threads.

Similarly, I wouldn't post in one of theirs.

Call me old fashioned.

You know I had never thought about it, but I am thinking about it right now, and no - Me Casa, You Casa [or something like that]! Actually I am sometimes surprised when I see a thread I have forgotten about and see that I started it, I think 'gosh did I start that - wow!' or sometimes I go 'gosh did I start that - oh no!'

I always cook with wine, and sometimes I actually put it in the food.

actually another train of thought ... does anyone not post in threads if it's started by someone they're not keen on?

I shall of course be going by a process of elimination here ... anyone who doesn't add to this thread doesn't like me!! of course it's too late for Floopy, Cat, Fee and Flip they are counted as people who adore me whether they like it or not!

I really don't care who started the thread and will scoot over most.

My biggest disappointment though was a thread I started about spelling and punctuation hoping to get lots of childish tips on how you use a comma, and how to remember the sequence of the planets for example.

Oh no.

It was taken over by Spellist's of an aggressive nature - bored the pants off me it did.

Actually, that was one of your finest threads :smartie:
