AtomicNo13 understands that this is a 'spoof' of a Thread in the Off Topic Forum.

I would have never expected this Thread deserved such a response from the stalkers among the Not as Clever Thread.

Michael, thanks for your post (original post by the way). It doesn't take much to confuse me these days so when I looked at the forum just minutes ago I saw the same title on a thread that I swore I had already read. The second (copy cat) guy is quite long winded and could use some advice from someone like you. Yours brought up a concern, was short and to the point and finished with a question for all of us.

Others will spend $100 worth of words when it can be done using $1.57. I seldom read this guy. Can't follow because of my short attention span.

Innovate, Experiment and Question

Thank you for combining a 'Stalker Thread' that went wrong.

My point is the premise of the original post was wrong. I made what I felt was an obvious 'spoof' that making a statement that included no facts to support it. If I need to put the smiley faces, and others after each statement... to get the idea across as being clever, only several understood. It missed my point and am sorry for the confusion.

Stalking as it was put, was negative. It should not be negative, when it comes to ideas. This term used is more aligned with illegal acts and perversions, rather than the comparison of similar ideas.

My Boondocking is much different than the majority on the AirForum. So I define what I mean as Boondocking, then proceed. It eliminates confusion.

Often many Threads begin with a premise with no facts, just an opinion. Then it takes multiple questions to get more information.

My Question(s):

- Give some examples of 'Idea Stalking' on the Forum.
- Was the Stalking Thread(s) an improvement over the other? Or not?
- Must a new Thread be vetted for any repetition of any previous threads, before posting?
- The majority of Threads of no merit, die quickly. A natural death. Leave it be.

I do find it amusing that some prefer short statements and ignore those that contain more details. Much like a child's Primer Reader in first grade. Large pictures, large print and less than five words per sentence. I am not insulted. Most ideas have no ending, just refinements and tweaking.

For those who did not get the 'IRONY', a figure of speech in which the literal meaning is the opposite of the intended meaning, I apologize. No irony goes unpunished when well intended.

Stalker or coincidence?

I tend to think more discussion is a good thing Ray, as is a touch of sarcastic criticism from time to time...

Our culture has become a bit over sensitive and intolerant of dissenting opinions and a sharp wit put to use.

I say this as a person who has disagreed with you on this forum at least once.

On post length, hey, if the post grabs my attention I will read it all, if not I skim.

That said you are a pretty good writer, so you don't say the same thing over and over paragraph after paragraph or present a disjointed diatribe like some do... Like I said, some I read, some I skim. The author pretty much determines that.




Superat stultitia.
