WOW!!! So many peeps of the same mind, all self-proclaimed thread-killers. I am starting to be worried, though. This isn't going to be a way to corral all the TK's, marking us with a Scarlet Letter (or two), is it?

A thead locker is when you post something that the moderators find offensive or the thread gets too nasty and they lock it so no one else can post. The problem is that you don't always know what's going to be deemed offensive or what someone might get upset about - baring the obvious like swear words, hot topics etc.
I locked a thread by using sarcasm to get a laugh about people who pool hop and, well, others didn't have a sense of humor and were offended. The thread got nasty towards me and boom - it was locked. I was then given a warning and told I would get points against me if I was "mean" again. Wow!! I wasn't trying to be mean. I had no idea that sarcasm was frowned upon here and that you can get penalized for using it. I've read plenty a thread where people were discussing much "hotter" topics than mine and slinging mud left and right, yet it was still open. Go figure.
So the moral of this story is...Better a thread killer than a thread locker.

I totally feel like a thread killer...so most of the time I just lurk. Shoot, I've got a trip report going and I'm even killing that one, no one even posts in that one either!

I haven't been around for a few days.. Thought I could use some exercise today.. So here I go.. Move your hips to the left, then to the right! Now go bump, bump, bump. See I can multi-task. I kept the thread going and did my daily workout!

And I came in to bump your bump! (Ooohh! That sounds bad--I certainly didn't mean anything 'dirty' by that!) Just trying to get us back to page one and keep Tinker'n'Fun from having the horrible distinction of killing THIS thread!

Oh, and budget related--I was at the Disney Store today at MOA (Mall of America) and bought the 36" Aurora doll for DD for $5! Of course, DD was WITH me and it is very difficult to sneak a three foot doll to the register without her seeing or me looking like some kind of deranged doll wrangler, so I just told her that we had to pretend we didn't buy it and we would just forget about it. Okay, so that 'probably' won't work, but we have been home for hours and she hasn't asked for or about it yet, so maybe...our Disney Store was pretty picked over, but considering it is a pretty high traffic mall AND it has been a holiday weekend, there was still quite a bit left.

Off to kill more threads! Look out, Coffee Creamer thread--YOU'RE NEXT!

I just got back from Walmart and the only things on my list was a gallon of milk (done! $5!) and a scale. I just couldn't bring myself to buy a scale. I didn't want to spend the $40 LOL!!

Toldja so. Killed my own thread again.
http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=1726329

Pulled it up from page 2 just to say it was officially killed, deceased, in repose, gone to its maker, bought the farm, dead as a doornail, devoid of life, departed, lifeless - it is my dearly departed late thread.

Just because you ask a question, it doesn't mean it's going to be answered and if it's not answered, then you are the last poster and the thread is killed? Am I right?

Keep the tag...we all know you did it yourself...It's a good one. The tag fairy will just be jealous.
