Not As Cool As ME ME ME

It is funny though. The biggest longest most active threads are sometimes the old "tree falls in the forest" because no one is listening. Go figure!

I'm struck by how people love to respond in droves to the kinds of threads that don't really encourage the exchange of ideas but allow us to post only about ourselves (ME ME ME).

Witness anytime someone posts...

1. How many miles have you ridden this year?
2. Tell what bikes you own?


200 responses? No problem. Everyone likes to write about themselves. No one reads what anyone else posts. It isn't even as good as graffiti on the bathroom wall. Why in the world folks even respond to those threads is beyond me, other than that it gives the poster the opportunity to talk about his/her favorite subject (self).

Rant Over.

Yeah, aint it the truth. BTW, apologies for that - find myself in that trap a lot - see there I go again. sh1t I just did again.. ah fuggedabout it.

I think the other threads that get a lot of hits are those started by Von, at least here in NCD. She could post "I ate an avocado at lunch" and get 25 responses in under two hours.

You are just simply a higher life form than I. But even if, say, you and I wanted to review such threads for insight into others, I can bet you that the overwhelming majority of posters opened the thread for only an opportunity to post about themselves.

Gee, now I'm feeling like I sound so negative. Why must you wound me so?
