    'Ever wonder what it was you said wrong that suddenly the thread comes to a screeching halt?

    What thread killers have you seen, or even better; what potential thread killers can you think of?

    Every time I type something that brings a thread to a screeching halt it's usually this:

    <<Thread Closed>>

    I think thread titles are often the killers. They are either meaningless, or become irrelevant at some point when better threads supplant them.

    My current favorite just popped up last night. Very rude.
    It could also be a new-member repelant:
    Rant: why are some webOS users stupid??!!!!
    http://forums.precentral.net/web-os-...rs-stupid.html

    Other thread titles that get a quick round of flames and then just die:

    • Help me!!!
    • [fill in the blank] doesn't work!
    • How do I install [preware/theme/quickinstall]
    • I'm switching to [whatever]
    • If Palm doesn't [whatever] I'm switching to [whatever]

    and the list goes on...

    Hence the need for all those posts to be dumped into this thread:

    i think posts like this one that workerb33 has posted are potential thread killers since they answer every aspect of your quest, leaving everyone else scrambling say Uh-dur ()

    <<Thread Merged>> is a pretty effective killer, too. But in a good way.

    another major thread killer is a thread like this. it tends to just die from loneliness after just a day or two...
