Thread killer champions

    Some people seem to be able to make the comment that just ruins a conversation. I've gone back to the last 100 or so really dead threads and counted up how many times each person was the one named as the last poster. Here's my list of PFs best thread killers:
    1)with 21- franzneitzche
    2)with 15- Moonbear
    3)with 12- tribdog
    4)with 9-tie-Ivan Seeking and Tsu

    Honorable mentions go to:gokul, JasonRox, chrono and mattmns.

    Boy, I thought I was bad! Whooo! :rofl:

    I guess maybe a race to the bottom of the threads should begin, right about, NOW! :tongue2:

    franz won't let you kill it until it hits 2000 posts. He's been desperately ressurecting it every time someone rightfully should have killed it.

    Ooh, an honorable mention !

    Now for the snooty, academic part :

    Tribdog, your conclusion (ability to kill threads) is not a direct outcome of the evidence (number of last posts). You have to at least factor in the total number of posts by each person (posts in GD) to get a more accurate representation of the killer instinct. Franz and Moonie have so many posts here, they are more likely to be the winning killers. You have to divide the number of kills by the total number of posts during the same period to get a corrected distribution.

    :rofl:

    Now, you also need to factor in the primary cause of death. Just because franz attempts to resurrect dead posts on a nightly basis, it doesn't mean he's the one who killed them. They were long dead before he posted in them. That's like saying the ER doc is the murderer because they couldn't bring a gunshot victim back to life. :biggrin:

    Dude, you read through the last 100 or so dead threads just to catalogue the final posters? How much free time do you have?

    If he's got so much time,why doesn't he catalogue the posters with # of posts in the TD subforum,as Greg wanted them not to be added to the indivdual tally...?

    I can't believe I was not mentioned. I make a post and no one says anything at all. Oh well. This thread is dead. :frown:

    Yeah, but when you kill a thread, you have the powers to hide the evidence. :rofl:

    :cry: I'm disappointed - as a Reublican, I naturally always want to have the last word and I thought I did a good job of killing threads in the Politics forum.

    By the way, how much time do you have on your hands, exactly...?

    I thought my name was suspiciously at the end of too many threads.

    However, i contend that my rank is solely due to the fact that i post far more than anyone else in here, so of course far more threads would have ended with my posts,thats just simple statistics.

    :rofl: Awww...poor Russ. Sorry to break it to you, but when a Republican says something in a room full of Democrats/liberals, you'll NEVER get the last word. I don't know if tribdog counted the politics subforum in his rankings. Otherwise, I'd probably be much lower on the list given the limited number of posts I have in Politics.

    Of course, another way I could choose to interpret the results are that some of us are just incredibly adept at so fully resolving an issue that once we speak, there is no room left for any more debate. *awaits tomatoes being thrown: I really wanted to make some salsa anyway* :biggrin:
