When I first posted on here, I was welcomed and it felt good to be a part of such a great group. Now I feel all but ignored and am asking myself why I even bother trying to join in conversations? I am NOT trying to be confrontational here...that's not my way...but I do feel hurt and as to the point that I have to say something about it or just not return... Have I done or said something forbidden in trucking or TT land?

Hey Phoenix, don't over thinked, I have place some conversation on here, some get a prompt response some don't, I figure most of us like u are driving most of d time so it's impossible to comment all d time on every conversation, or sometimes we have nothing instructive to add, so don't feel bad,......out

I agree with Last Shadow. A lot of us are driving all the time. I post a lot because I'm slightly obsessed with social media but it's an exhausting job ESPECIALLY for a rookie!

We aren't ignoring you. A lot of time conversations either just die a natural death or get pushed off the page due to new threads or just get kind of lost.

If you have a question that you feel isn't getting answered either start a new thread or post a comment on the old one to bump it back to the top.

Remember we all work for a living! smile.gif

Hi phoenix, I am new here and have just 1 post but I'm the only 1 who has replied to it by searching more witch I probably should have done in the first place and not bother you all, I know you all are busy.....

With that being said, I am learning from your posts and the others on here and this site in general. I feel blessed and I appreciate all your sharing you and everyone does. Thank you!!

You're being overly sensitive. I wasn't going to comment... but then I'd be ignoring you hahahha sorry.. I couldn't resist.

Some topics just interest people more than others. Don't take offense.

See that number under my picture, where it says almost 3500 posts? (OK, I don't do Facebook, I hang out here!) I sometimes add things to a thread I feel is substantial support or information for the contributors. But many times my post is simply passed over. Play the numbers, get your jollies every once in a while. It's OK!

Haha Rainy you crack me up.

I agree though, maybe a bit sensitive. Some of my posts go ignored as well. It's not a big deal.

Yes you are being overly sensitive. And "no" you are not being ignored and "no" you didn't do anything forbidden. I read many posts and reply where I believe I can add value or redirect someone's opinion. Like Errol most of what I write doesn't initiate further discussion. No worries...we appreciate your participation.

For a while I was thinking of changing my user name to "Thread Killer".
