DISaster threads

Admit it....you're drawn to the little lock symbol. Come on, the first step is admitting you have a problem....you read them, don't you.


I'm LoserMomma...and I love a good DISaster. Who's with me?

I'm right there with ya! If someone mentions a thread that has been locked, I will search for it. Plus some threads just scream controversy. I look at the last page and if the posts are waaaay off topic, I will read the whole thread to see when it took a wrong turn.

The ones with the subject edited to "Never mind" or "Please Delete" are even better.

I am right there with you. I also recheck a thread I was reading or posted in that is now locked. I wanted to see what detour the threat took to get locked. I love the ones where the OP takes their toys and goes home.

There have been some interesting threads that I have read and posted on, but then hardly everyone else does. Where is everyone? Then I have to go search out the threads that have innocuous sounding titles but a few hundred posts. I was lucky enough to read the last few posts of a thread that went poof last night. Not even locked, poofed. Great stuff.

Yep, I like to pop in & see what got it locked. I also have to read threads that the OP has changed to "delete" too. Always hope someone followed The Rule. Gotta read the good stuff!

Naaah. After it's locked, if it was a flame fest, all the flaming is usually edited. And if it's locked because the op lied about something to gain sympathy points, I'll hear about it anyway. And sometimes, they just are poofed out of existence.

I hate when that happens! Always just when it's getting good, too!

Locked threads are no fun if you don't get to be part of the reason they're locked

So, no I don't generally read them

I think we should be able to search specifically for locked threads.

I hate when I'm typing a reply and it won't go through because it just got locked.

My favorites are the ones that appear to be a topic so benign that it can't possibly go wrong. But it does!
