I think it often works better if I post less since its easy for me to forget its not just a personal conversation i'm having and get carried away.I need to remember that its a thread for everyone to contribute to.
Oh yeah, of course. I see your point. It's a balance act and a personal choice. That comment I made to Enfield was mainly directed at him. I tend to post too much in my own threads, but that's because I don't want anyone to feel left out if I've replied several others already. I should probably cut back, myself.

Yeah, I think so, too. Especially if the OP is personal and asking for advice and such. In those cases I think it's almost rude not to acknowledge that people took the time to try and help out.

It definitely depends on the content of the threads.

that's what she said
