Although this is somewhat on the negative side, think of this as a random thought and anecdote, and not as a personal attack on any of you that love last post threads . . .

My perception--and it may be incorrect, but this is how I remember it--is that when I joined Hatrack, last post threads would come and go. Someone would start one, people would play for a week or two, and then the thing would die. I don't think they ever lasted fifty pages, let alone a hundred. A mildly cool thing about this was that someone actually "won," for whatever winning was worth--someone got to be the last person to get bored of the game. (Yippee.)

When the incarnation before this thread came about, I was . . . well, annoyed is too strong a word, but I thought it was less cool because the damn thing wouldn't die. There were just sooooo many people who never got tired of the game that it just went on and on. I would say that it was the thread I found the lamest. (Yeah, yeah. I don't have to click on it. Save your breath/fingers: I posted it for you. I know I don't have any say in the matter; I'm just posting my feelings. I'm not incorrect for feeling the way that I do--we're all entitled to our feelings and opinions.)

Anyway, with the last last post thread, eventually an odd thing happened: it got so big, or something, that it could not be opened the normal way. But it was still possible to read it and post to it . . . it was just tricky. For some reason I cannot explain, this made me despise the thread less. It was like it had transcended ordinary lameness, and found a lameness so extreme that it was actually cool. It had gone through lameness and come out on the other side! I still was not a regular participant--but then, you'll notice that I'm not a regular participant in any of the forum games. I don't role-play, I don't go into the various bars and inns that have existed before and exist now, I don't get into "fights" with people that I can't win unless they choose to let me . . . so again, I acknowledge that this is more about my personality than about anything else. But I would post in that thread once in a long while. It became, for me, a random thought and anecdote thread.

So now along came this thread. Someone figured that it was a bad thing that the last post thread could not be entered easily, and a new one was needed. Once again, though, this thread just won't die. *lesigh* There goes the cachet.

Anyway, there is no conclusion to this. It was just my rambling. Don't think of it as any sort of judgment on yourselves, just as an observation of my own gut reactions.

In any case,

I've got the last post.

Unlikely. Though I too wish this particular incarnation would pass on, it's something to do when I can't think of much to say on normal threads.

I will valiantly avoid joining this thread and lending my support to the pathetic attempts to up post counts that it entails.

Oh, darn, I failed.

I'm baaaack!

And yet again I attempt to gain the victorious title of last poster.

Though to me this thread is bittersweet, it really did inflate my post count. So I must ask you kind users of the virtual realm, grant me this victory so I can maintain control of my post count!
