    Homage to lonely, ignored, and disrespected threads

    Soooo.... I have, like, this thread you know, that I really wanted some input on. But nooooooobody (hardly) stopped by for a visit and chat. Feels really incomfortable like trying join a small group for a chat but just feels .... outside the circle.

    So come on people - show me some love here. Is it something I said? Do I need professional coaching on thread titles? Or subjects? I'm feeling unbalanced just knowing this bikes crank if off center. Or maybe I'm off center. I dunno. Anyone feel ignored like this, or am I just ... sensitive.

    I don't see what the problem is. You responded to your own thread three times. Looks like lots of (self) love to me.

    Sometimes people just don't have much to say to help you. Somebody responded to your other thread. And so it goes. Happens to everyone.

    GOOGLE! Chapman: [slightly irritatedly and with exaggeratedly clear accent] One of the cross beams has gone out askew on the treadle.
    Cleveland: Well what on earth does that mean?
    Chapman: *I* don't know - Mr Wentworth just told me to come in here and say that there was trouble at the mill, that's all - I didn't expect a kind of Spanish Inquisition.



    Actually, it makes sense in a really odd sort of way.

    I refuse to answer the OP's questions for fear of becoming a quote in a signature line.
