Slippery slope data

This is for encouragement, ideas, and support for people going through a faith transition no matter where you hope to end up. This is also the place to laugh, cry, and love together.

Was it here, or on the old MormonDiscussions (now DiscusMormonism) board, that someone was able to add a thread-kill percentage to the list of users?
I don't remember seeing it here. Sounds like an interesting thing to add.
I think we had that on the old board. But I would rather not make people paranoid about being the last one to put up a post on a three day old thread. It is going to die anyway. Why make people think what they say killed it.

Besides, over on DiscussMormonism they get a good fight going and it goes on and on for 50 pages of worthless bickering. They pick apart what people say just to argue with it. So, I don’t want people just posting to keep a thread going, or worrying that what they say will be the last post. I want people to feel free to post if they have something worthwhile to say.

IIRC, people wore it as a badge of honour.

However, I see your point, and if it made board members feel bad then I agree that it would not be a good idea.

Those are good points. I agree. (I'd like to know how many threads I was a thread-killer of, but I agree that it could make people feel bad - or post just to keep the thread going when they actually have nothing to add).
There are 2 Gods. One who created us. The other you created. The God you made up is just like you-thrives on flattery-makes you live in fear.

Believe in the God who created us. And the God you created should be abolished.
