    How do you determine if a thread was killed or died of natural causes?
    The last poster is the killer, that is natural. 🙂

    Postmortem autopsy? 😀

    Anyway, this title is dubiously worn with pride. Though, occasionally an incidental victory is celebrated as a first.

    But striving and crowing to be perennial thread-killing champ exposes a lonely existence.

    Wolfy........You try to read too much into things all it really means is the poster was the last one posting in that thread. A thread doesn't get over a 100 posts in it if it is boring would it?

    Actually the last poster is just that the last poster. The Thread may have just run its course.

    Now was it a record for most threads killed on the first post in a thread?
