If you want to create a thread that will go on and on and get everyone fired up, do the following:

1) Wait for someone to post a very basic, well accepted piece of information, like the sky is blue.

2) Tell everyone that the sky is not really blue, and if they believe that, they are a bunch of bimbos or lemmings.

3) When forum members challenge you by asking for more information, accuse them of being hostile.

4) Tell them that you would have shared this information with them had they been nicer to you, but since they were not, you are not going to share your secret.

5) Then throw out a bunch of vague statements that don't really offer any meaningful content but include a few buzz words that sound legitimate.

6) Tell everyone you don't have time to respond to their requests for detailed information. Then continue proceeding to reply more than 30 times to the same thread, all the while reminding people how you don't have time to respond to their petty requests for more information.

7) Continue repeating steps 2-6 and see how long you can keep people coming back for more of the same insane discussion.

8) Repeatedly remind everyone how petty they are for contributing to this thread.
Is it possible there is collusion between you and IP on this thread....?

I was merely trying to share some things I learned from this forum. My thoughts were not meant to address any particular forum member in a negative way.
