    Who besides me has a thread with ZERO responses?

    Am I the only one? It's kinda humiliating ya know.

    I get few responses to my threads at first, but then they always seem to get a lot of responses, but over a long period of time. I can't tell you how many of my threads re-appear on the first page after months or a year later. Then it takes me a long while to realize that it's my own thread.

    Well, I've never had a reply from Zero in any of my threads, but our sub-forum interest doesn't overlay that often: http://www.bikeforums.net/search.php?searchid=6057973

    Saturday I made a thread in the 41 with zero responses. Of course I responded to it on Sunday.

    The bump helped bring the view count to 215.

    I've gotten hundreds of views and no responses on legitimate questions a few times, don't take it personal.

    I thought I did, but I usually respond to my own threads if no one else does. How do you check?
    Punctuation is important. It's the difference between "I helped my uncle, Jack, off a horse" and "I helped my uncle Jack off a horse"

    It's like a behavorial test: I taped a quarter to one of our vending machines at work with the sign: Found: this quarter. If you can identify it, it's yours." That quarter stayed there for a week. Next I put a quarter on top of a stainless microwave in the same area. That quarter lasted half a day. Things like that give me a chuckle.

    We had a song in elementary school that went "nobody loves me, everybody hates me, I'm gonna go eat worms" Is that what you're feeling? It happens to me all the time and I just sing my song
    Red, like the color my hair used to be.

    I usually reply to my own threads if that's the case. That way I don't feel so lonely. I at least always have myself.

    Remember Donkey, in Schrek? Feeling alone and singing... "...all along again...nobody worthwhile beside meeee.." or something like that? And on that happy note I'm off to work.

    the ones I want responses for get none, or the response Ii do get go off on a totally unrelated tangent. How about this, in the 1990s I was bike messenger in downtown Chicago, that was after being a teacher for 25 years, And being an obnoxious bike messenger was definately more fun.

    I hope you weren't teaching English, or Browser Spellcheck 101.
