  • why is it so hard for people to start new topics? scared to ask questions?

    dont know anything to write about? Scared you'll get shown-up? what's the problem? You've got time and "know" enough to comment, so why not start some topics?

    So GunKid.
    You're sadly starting the typical taunts again?
    Although I'll give you credit on a milder level.
    Maybe it's because people don't have much new to talk about with the panic buying and all the gun and ammo shortages?

    Maybe some are a little hesitant to reply just out of being "nice" ? I don't know.

    I'll say it right here as I've said it on at least 3 other forums over the last 20 some years of seeing you start your rehashed online schpiel.

    You'll get more flies with honey.
    And a survival forum ain't a prison yard or a 2 bit bar or pool hall.

    There's a wide range of people of varied ages and life experiences usually present.

    We can all learn from each other. Including YOU, if we all keep it polite and above all realistic!

    No false claims or embelliembellishments
    No flame wars.

    That'd be something different and enjoyable I believe.

      Because too often most of us have mostly a television and or movie education...stamped out...a xerox copy of what we see in television and or movies.

      We tend to let the televisions and or movies do our thinking for us.


      What does the word mean...Amuse....Amusement..


      A= without....

      like agnostic.....A without ......gnosis...wisdom....without wisdom Agnostic.


      Athiest....A without ....theist.....or theos...God....Without God....Atheist.


      Amuse ....Amusement..

      A without.......Muse...thinking....without thinking ....Amuse ...musement...


      In short...something fed to us to prevent thinking....


      Too many people out here are watchers...not thinkers...and certainly not independent thinkers..and I include myself in this.


      Most of the inventions which make our lives more comfortable and relaxing,,,even more productive....were not invented by the average person..but people who could see, hear, and think a problem thorough to a solution....problem solvers...thinkers....not Amusers.


      Be warned these Ishmaelites...who would feed you a steady stream of Amusements to prevent thinking....

      Thinking is difficult ...many of us avoid it for a lifetime.


      Years ago ...in dating a woman with children..I noted how much of a drug television was and had become to them. They ate in front of the TV....got dressed in front of the TV...the Tv was the center of the house...

      Their quotes and values were from the television and often from movies...they lived second hand and knew it not.


      I told this woman i was dating that she had a problem.....with the television...it was running the household...not her. She needed to be teaching these children to stand on their own feet..not on the television. Teaching them what it takes to grow up...not just to be comfortable and stupid.

      If it was not the television which was the drug ...it was the telephone and it never stopped ringing.


      What I did for her was go to Radio Shack and get a key switch and installed it onto the power chord of the television...their only television.

      If the switch was off....the television would not work.

      The reaction of the children was as if someone had taken them off a drug.....immediate and almost rebellion.

      It was a very interesting phenomenon/reaction to observe.....

      But ...it taught the children to do things other than vegetate in front of the television and let that device run their lives.


      Be warned your Ishmaelite television and or movies doing your thinking for you...turning you into an unthinking robot....in short...herding you without you being aware this is happening. This kind of thing can be a type of drug and can herd you and your family without you being aware of it.

        What’s more important, starting topics or exchanging information?

        conversations are what facilitate learning. Exchanging ideas and opinions are how we validate things, improve understanding, and learn new things.

        simply starting a topic in of itself is meaningless. Being able to hold conversations and exchange ideas is far more productive and important.

        putting undue value on topic starts becomes spam very quickly and is counter productive.

        I put far more value on civil discourse within a smaller number of threads.

          Also, this topic probably should have been in another forum, hopefully the moderator can move it.

            Registror ,
            As you start so many "topics," it can't be hard at all. AFA knowledge, copy and paste YouTube links doesn't indicate any knowledge whatsoever.
            BTW, a search reveals Registror is not a word; did you misspell Registrar? LOL

              Once you have used all your knowledge to make topics, what new topics can you start? Other then new tech, or new experiences what else is there?

                Knowledge without context and experience is pretty much trivia.

                fewer threads with more discussion is far more valuable than lots and lots of thread starts. Some people think there’s some kind of status or impressive value in starting threads. This thinking leads to spamming the forums with disjointed and often repetitive posts. There is not a plus side to this, it ends up making good information disappear, lost in the noise.

                discussing the pros and cons, alternative approaches, give & take - these are what make a board great, these are what lets us add tools to our tool belts. Part of this is recognizing that there is not a single best approach, that what works for me may not work for you.

                but without a discussion in the same thread, this is lost.

                the OP seems to have some difficulties with these concepts.

                  I agree with a major wow to your words.

                  With a site, although questions may lack experience, they do open doors to great informative threads. As you said, the pros and cons, and approaches; the give and take of internet friends sharing information and ideas.

                  There isn't any status or impressive value to thread starts or post counts. Only the quality of information is of important. This s only way to add tools to our belt or share tools from our belt. Is to give and receive and not advice that works where I am or you are. So many people don't "get" that simple concept.

                  I'd add without a quality discussion in a thread, this special thing, the most important thing that makes us who we are is lost.
