I'm a conversation stopper

July 19, 2007 1:22pm CST
I just looked at the "discussions I've responded to" section and it looks as though most of them have come to a grinding halt after I left my response. I may have to go and put on some deodorant as I seem to be scaring everyone off. I've even changed my avatar to a bright and sunny smiling me (which is a real effort I have to tell you) in hopes that people will not be put off by my horrible countenance.

hehehe welcome to the conversation stopper club. Yesterday I responded to quite a few conversation and most of them have my post as the latest response. I don't think your countenance or your avatar has anything to do with people responding though. It just happens according to the discussion we replied to. Maybe we found it very interesting and others don't. Anyway, nice smiling avatar you have there.

same thing has happened to mine, I am thinking that maybe their isn't alot of people on mylot at the moment thats why.. I have 3 conversations going but only a few responses I don't know why though usually I get over 15 responses from them.. I don't think it has anything to do with your avatar either.. Ha I had a winnie the pooh one on mine and still got replies.. Don't worry though they will respond to you.. Have a great day and happy posting!

I like your comments inked4life, so don't let it get to you. You're responses are some of the few that I look forward to...........though you have responded to my discussions from today (hint, hint, hint). That's why I've got you listed as a friend, so I can find your discussions too.

It's very strange that it happens sometimes...not every day but today about 90% of my responses ended the discussion

Tonite I lowered myself to wear the jersey of my most hated college team in exchange for a superior place in line at the harry potter auction. That, and $20 to buy the g/d/ book. Yes, a former student had a high asking price and I caved. Anything for my daughter. However, revenge was mine as I have a role of toilet paper at home with this team's logo on it. My bowel movement was quite gratifying. Pay backs are H-E-L-L.

what college jersey did you have to wear? Don't follow college much but big NFL fan. If I had to wear a Browns or Bengals jersey I'd be physically ill...GO STEELERS!!

i have noticed the same thing with a lot of the discussions i reply to...but i think it is becuase i am such a forthright b*tch. i'm not afriad to speak my mind and tell people exactly what i think. But i am also empathetic and compassionate and have a lot of advice to offer...more life experience than i should have at 23. So yeah, umm, i won't change who i am or how i approach things. i won't change my avatar from honoring AFI into a picture of myself smiling (which is a rare occurance unless i am with AFI or my best friends) or a sunshine or rainbows. Not worth it to me. If people are put off by my avatar, that is tou bad for them. i hope you get the results you are looking for. By the way, i love your name. Obviously you are as into tattoos as my friends and i are.

You too? Wow! I just thought it was me. Most times these days when I post a discussion people avoid me like I am a plague carrier. And, I'm not. I was tested for plague recently. Totally negative! LOL! I think I have been gone a lot lately so my regular peeps are just forgetting about me. I hope that is not true. I haven't been avoiding anyone, just crying a lot lately. So, that's my excuse for not showing up more often. I think the My Lot email system is messed up, or so I've heard. So, the owners of the discussions don't know when someone has responded to their stuff. Or, at least I can only hope that's the problem.

Maybe your not a conversation stopper at all. Maybe by the time you respond to the conversation, there really isn't anything left to add to the conversation. So think of that as a good thing, at least I would.

Lol way to go! Hmm I will have to do the same thing you did and see if people stopped responding after I did. Haha. What did your avatar used to be?
• United States
20 Jul 07
Ha.. I've noticed the same about my own responses. I tell myself it's because my responses are so manifestly brilliant and irrefutable, that they are necessarily the last word on any topic. Either that or I'm just creepy, and I poison any discussion to which I respond. I wonder who will be the last to respond to this discussion?

LoL I like this discussion! All I have to say is you must have one powerful voice!

As a conversation stopper myself, I sympathize with you and that is in spite of me not scaring everyone off by using my portrait as an avatar. Maybe that's the reason my pay rate went down.

Haha, I have not read any of your posts. But I guess I should in order to find out what not to do. Hope I do not smell anything while I am there though (covers nose). Maybe it is just a coincidene? I mean you have like two thousand four hundred and fourty six posts here on mylot Im sure not ALL of it has come to a grinding halt. :p

I was having the same feeling about the topics I posted. Maybe people are out enjoying the sun, but again today here it is raining. Or maybe I have to change my pic too. Seems like you're getting people chatting again with your new cute pic! ;) Your other one was good too! LOL Vicki
