I know how you feel.  I really try to respond to anything that I can add something to because I don’t like feeling ignored!

I’ve felt this way sometimes, but I really really think it’s just a product of too many nice people, if that makes sense…  As in, there are so many nice replies that it becomes easy to skim over them and not reply to each specific one.  It can be kind of a good problem to have, you know?

I think it could sometimes be an accident.  Like if I start a thread I’ll try to come back to it a bunch of times and reply, but if someone replies like a week after the thread has died out, I’ll probably miss it…

I can’t think of a single board bee that I’d try to avoid πŸ™‚  I can’t imagine that many people would do something like that!

Sometimes I don’t respond when I don’t have a great response… but that’s about it.

I always try to respond to each person too. I don’t think it’s anyone’s intention to make people feel left out – at least it isn’t mine! πŸ™‚

I think some people just get busy and don’t respond again.  You can’t expect them to respond to every little message.

I think all of us have been ignored some time or another. But you’re right, it hurts a little. I try not to take it to personally. I try to leave responses like missasb!

Hopefully the bee community gets stronger now!

I don’t think anyone ignores you πŸ™‚  I love reading your posts.  I find them funny, witty and insightful.

I think that sometimes there are so many posts that it is hard to keep up.  Especially during the week when we’re all busy at work or school.  Don’t take it personally, I don’t think that anyone is doing anything on purpose.

I feel this way sometimes! I am sure no body means anything by it!

However, it’s the worst when someone responds to all posters on the thread by name EXCEPT you! LOL

Meh, it happens. I’ve been around forums for years and years, so I guess I understand that it’s quite different from RL conversations. Sometimes people post comments that don’t merit a response, sometimes whatever you would have said was covered in your response to other people, and so on. It’s totally not a personal thing.

No worries OK – Honestly I totally related to your post as soon as I saw it and was like Awe she feels like me LOL!

I think one culprit is I notice that the boards aren’t as busy as they have been and so if you are active on the boards no one posts after you for a long time!

Don’t worry about whining! You’re not alone, I’ve felt the same way before. I’m sure you’re right, and it is a coincidence, but it’s still not a fun feeling!

Yep, I’ve felt that way. But I don’t let it bother me. I keep on trucking, giving support wherever I go. πŸ™‚
