Thread Killers???

I did not want to post this in the "best all time thread killers" post cause I kinda felt that I would be interuppting. But could someone explain what a thread killer is?

Thread killers are members who destroy what-was-before a nice and friendly thread (i.e. a conversation) with anarchist comments.

For example: lets take a thread on 'The Big bang'.

If someone came and suddenly talked about bunnies and tortoises, and made people stop talking about 'The big bang', then that member would be a thread killer.

Maybe you could have, you, know, actually read the thread, or at the very least, posted this in the stupied quetion thread, since this question qualifies.

What is it with neo-phytes and acting...well, like neo-phytes?

I'm still going with the theory it's someone who posts such a profoundly thoughtful response to a thread that nobody can find anything else to say on it, or are just in such awe of the brilliance, they wouldn't dare risk dimming that brilliance with another reply that would just be cast into shadows. :biggrin:

It's just as the name implies, the last person to post in a thread before the thread dies. As for killing, it's all circumstantial evidence, I swear! Nobody has demonstrated motive, and where's the murder weapon?

No, that person would be a thread hijacker. Plus, your examples are absurd.

A better example would be if someone were to come into a thread about thread killing and posted something about thread hijacking. Some people just can't resist bait and respond even when they know the post is off-topic. And there goes the thread, from nerds to pirates, baffling the poor neophyte who starts reading from the last post.

By the way, who's the top thread hijacker? o:)

MIH has the vote for the pirate-thing and that should weigh a lot...So she's in pole position for the moment.

Oh, I'm glad you all found the amateur thread-killer thread. This is a much better place to practice thread-killing before attempting the champion thread! :biggrin: :tongue2:

WTF!!! I had this thread killed. Then Franz came in here, so I decided to be nice and let him have it. Then more of you show up, and now we got a second thread to kill.

Hey, no fair! If I have to give out a prize, does that mean I'm not eligible to kill this one? And if I have to forfeit my eligibility, then I want to be the one giving out the kick in the butt! :devil:

So, there you have it, whoever kills this thread wins a kick in the butt from me and a kiss from Dex! :biggrin:

That's the plan. They might like getting a butt kick from you and kiss from me, and that just wouldn't give either of us much joy in awarding the prize. :devil: Oh, and if you grow the beard for it, make sure you've got lots of little food bits in it when you give out that kiss...it's the attention to those little details that makes the prize special. :rofl:
