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.
