Unless this one doesn’t in which case I broke the rule!
Call me an attention whore (I do this for my entertainment above all else), but I tend to avoid posting in threads that already have a high number of posts. The higher the number of posts the higher the likelihood that my post will be ignored, the higher the chance that what I want to say has already been said.
The thread about what irks you or you like about the LOTR films. I love the films but there ARE things that irk me and therefore I would have something to say in that thread. But seeing how many replies it has I was put off. I reckon most of the posts are as part of an ongoing conversation between a group of dopers. Coming late to a thread makes you not a member of any group already talking.
