7. Agree. Lots of other longer posts unreced into oblivion
Edited on Mon Mar-01-10 04:54 PM by unc70
One doesn't even have to be TSed to disappear. There are a number of posters I don't see being very active, and when they do post they are likely met by the unrec squad. It doesn't take that many unrecs to keep a post off the greatest page, not enough to have it show up on the "Tens" page. Just keep it off long enough to "age" off the first page of "Latest".

That technique for hiding something often includes posting something quickly that misframes the OP and hijacks the thread before others have a chance at posting. I sometimes see this happening so quickly that it is clear that those posting could not have read the OP, much less anything linked.

Once in a while, enough people get involved on one of these topics to overcome those unrecs and hijacks enough to have a "spirited discussion". Too often, those turn nasty with alerts all over the place. Great fun for everyone.
