    I think you may have to pose that question to Pondy. He is, after all, the expert, well maybe not at killing threads but seems to have the wherewithal to come up with the stats which may shed some light on the question.
    Maybe I'm not posting often enough. We'll see next month.

    And often that is simply a matter of "blind luck". 😉

    Or it can be manipulated as I've done on more than one occasion. 😉

    The problem I have is that my posts are so entertaining somebody always responds to them.

    And even this post, far less entertaining and life-changing than my last, will still inspire a response from some chap or chapess.

    In fact this thread will die when I stop. Not before. So no Need to try and kill it. You can just observe that it is not renewed and then post your killing post.

    We have pages and pages of Posts here which just dilute the Contents.

    Thank you everybody.

    The statistics you post every month are meaningless, irrelevant and trivial.



    I love it!

    As I've said before all it amounts to is getting in the last word in a thread.

    I only killed 9 which was around 25% of all threads....Still finished 1rs as thread killing champion for March.
