Finally, after a string of threads (pause for mixed-metaphor cringing) in which I said something and other folks kinda looked at each other blankly and picked up as if I hadn’t, I have an effect!
Uh, I killed a thread.
My detailed description of how to perform a “coathanger abortion”, aimed at convincing people that even under ideal conditions it’s a dangerous procedure that hurts women, often destroys reproductive capacity, and often enough kills them…led to the erasure of my posting plus the closure of the entire thread! Not that the moderator’s intentions were not good and judgment not valid, this is not a complaint about moderator mistreatment…
Actually, I’m surprised at the extent to which I’m feeling validated because something I posted into an existing thread actually didn’t fall into the abyss without proverbial ripples!
Are there other folks who have felt that their contribs to existing SDMB threads made them feel invisible sometimes? Do you find, to your embarrassment, perhaps, that you sometimes check threads in which you have posted only to see if anyone has replied to what you said?
Accused by self of daring to think he had often posted truly clever and illuminating content, I plead guilty.
But I killed a whole thread… ::slow grin::
