I have seen that happen several times, and I still don’t know how it happens. Some kind of bug during the posting of the thread.

Possibly because the poster does not include a first comment.

This is usually done by self-important bloggers who feel no comment is needed, so all-encompassing are their “articles”.

Don't think that is why. I often don't comment when I put up a post and there is others are still able to answer.

I’ve seen several of those too. I usually hit the “Report abuse” button and alert the mods. Maybe they cab shed some light on this subject.

Another site I chat on (sports related) uses upvotes and downvotes, and each user has a running point total. You get a point for every post you make, upvoting others costs you nothing, downvoting others costs you one point.

Point totals show longevity and frequency of posting, but the negbangs also help the board moderate itself. The truly abusive are hit pretty hard...they tend to leave or adjust their tone a bit.

I personally can’t post stories from heraldnet.com. I just have to deal with it. Last week was a terrific article about a huge food stamp fraud bust in downtown Everett. Freepers would have wanted to read it. I did post it to Twitter. Search “A-1 Smoke and Grocery Everett WA”

Shery,

I’ve noticed that if a thread gets moved from one forum to another, then you get the top of the first page when you try to post a reply. Just scroll down to the message to which you were replying and try again.

That only happens when someone has comment #1 yanked by the Mods. That usually happens because someone tried to skirt the “must excerpt” rules by posting material beyond the required excerpt in post #1.

Never ask the Mods questions. There are a few who take that as questioning their authoritah and will treat you like a cop dealing with a civilian sitting on the curb in handcuffs. Stand by for a Maglite Migraine.

Oh, I know there are some pimp-enablers who resent having blogger behavior pointed out, but I doubt that affects the fundraising.

Nope, not at all. Just mildly observant.

Drink. Drink, yes.

Oh! That is delicious

and refreshing! Mmm-mmm.

Sweet and sour,

like Chinese food.

Yeah.

(SPEAKING PRIMATE LANGUAGE)

He's saying

it's a celebratory

drink in his village.

Cheers!

Yeah, it brings

a joyful lightness

to the heart and soul.

No, no. No.

No, I'm sorry, it's not

"joyful lightness."

A better translation would be

"howling loneliness."

And then your bravery will be tested as your mind fogs.

And the Shadow Hags will rise from the graves and...

And hold you in an icy embrace.

And it'll feel like your bowel's being pierced

by a ghost serpent.

Well, that can't be right.

No, that can't be right.

Chaka...

(SPEAKING PRIMATE LANGUAGE)

Oh, no, no

Okay, he says it's not ghost serpent.

It's much closer to "zombie *ick."

I think it might be a narcotic.

Is that so?

I need you to be honest with me, okay? You a cop?

Chaka.

That's not an answer, Chaka. That's your name.

Seriously, by law, you have to tell me if you're a police officer.

Marco. Polo.

You wearing a wire?

(SPEAKING PRIMATE LANGUAGE)

Marco.

Polo.
