Why do you think that people attempt to create interesting and controversial threads in the pit?

Do you really think they relish the possible intellectual conversation? Or is it more a result of the constant need of teenagers to establish attention?

Is thread making a general question of curiosity, or a gem of e-whoring?
My God, it's full of stars!

A lot of threads about deep stuff and politics in the pit actually were very interesting and very educated except for the classic extremist dick that starts cursing.

It's a made up lie by the US government to pull away the attention from their secret weapons hid in the Antarctica.

So why have YOU tried to start an interesting, intellectual conversation in the pit?

#13
An actual intellectual conversation in the Pit? Well there was Socrates Cafe, but that dealt more with philosophy, deep conversations nonetheless. :\

Everybody knows that global warming is a corporate lie to sell more Hybrids. What's in those hybrids? Subliminal McDonald's advertising.

Will you be having fries with that pwnage?

Just because you are a mod doesnt mean you can spam.

I personally like deep interesting threads only when the TS knows what hes talking about and not some teenager who tries to be mr individual

they start their threads because we can only have so many threads about wieners,chicks,drugs, and megadeth.
#20
'Cause e-fame is awesome, baby.

In all seriousness, I actually quite like it when somebody makes an interesting point and it's possible to have a discussion. I'm far too lazy to find another forum for that purpose, so I make do with the what I've got.
The will to neither strive nor cry,
The power to feel with others give.
Calm, calm me more; nor let me die
Before I have begun to live.

Well, I think you've answered your own question for the most part.

Some people do it to spawn discussion, perhaps to broaden their mind though more likely to affirm their previously held beliefs.

Some people do it because the success and/or the caliber of the thread may well reflect on them.

Some people do it for a bit of both.

Many people who create these threads aren't teenagers as well.

The pit used to be better, in say, 04/05, it wasn't as annoying or immature and some decent conversations came out of it.
I remember when I signedc up to use the forums, it wasn't bad, but then oct06ers and nove06ers started to come in and there was a big change...
Now the majority of new members tend to be immature, and they stick around
#23
If this thread doesnt show the answer nothing will. The people being idiots are new.

The people actually answering are old.

The 07er discrimination isnt for no reason I guess.
#24
Why are you making this thread?
Are you seeking attention from a bunch of pit-dwellers?

Do you relish the possible intellectual conversation?
#26
I don't know if its any of the above Dready. It appears at times that threads have a life of their own. A seemingly innocent question can take off and spawn 5 pages of debate, flaming and some very stimulating conversation. I also have seen threads started that would appear to be the same at the outset only to die and float to the bottom of the pit in minutes. Some UGers have a knack for creating threads that stimulate some great conversations. (The Madcap - ya one of us immature '07ers that won't go away)
I don't really know the answer I guess. I don't start very many threads.
And ya there are quite a few "Look at me" threads but those can be quite useful as well. I now know about 300 different ways to tell someone how to stfu.

Yet you are an 06er.

It depends on the thread.

Some of them are an attempt to get cool points on the internet (ultimately proving the person in question has no life), some are asking a quick question, some are to give people something fun to do, and some are actual intelligent discussion.

But it varies.
I play by my own rules. And I have one rule; There are no rules... but if there are, they're there to be broken. Even this one.


Confused? Good.

This thread is ironic...I like it

But really, you can tell when someone's looking for discussion and when someone just wants attention by looking at their posts
Some people wait a lifetime, some simply accept...

...Some of us crash land, some of us eject...

...Some restore the blood flow, some just let it go and bleed...

...Some of us obsess, some move on to something new
