    Joining in on conversations that stop as soon as I add my comment, I have killed many, many threads on TDPRI. I sometimes wonder whether there's a record for the thread-killer category, and whether I might hold it. Others in the past have commented along these lines, thinking that they have a "gift" for killing threads. So:

    Unofficial Bad Dog Threadkilling Contest: last poster wins the Champion Threadkiller title.

    1) Thread is dead when it reaches page 5 in the Bad Dog archive pages, and the winner is the last qualified poster.

    2) OP is eligible only if the thread receives no responses. Mods are eligible, but "closing this thread" posts are disqualified. Posts that end the thread by violating TDPRI rules are not eligible. If the thread is closed, the last poster not disqualified wins.

    You beat me to it!

    But really, I believe the mods view a thread like this as
    a ridicule of their standards. To actually mention what will get
    a thread locked might also get you banned, either for a few weeks
    or forever. Tread lightly grasshopper.

    Did you just hit the Report button on this thread?
    That's cheating!
    The contest rules are, you must provide and answer
    to the OP question AND be the last one to post.

    The results will be posted but you probably won't be able to
    view them for a while, if ever. Thank you.

    I think he's referring more to being the sad last word in a thread that remains open and untouched by anyone after you. I often feel like a thread killer...

    You shouldn't write about unpermitted topics.
    You shouldn't write about threads being locked.

    See you've gone down the rabbit hole! Reasoning becomes its own insanity.

    Threads die because they get boring, misleading, and don't help anyone.

    Because he's asking why threads die.

    And you're posting something to argue with my opinion.

    A perfect example of why THIS thread is worthy of death.
