As long as you can hear the voices in your head, you're not alone...

Good question.

One thread I know I killed although I was not an active participant for a month before it closed. I did feel guilty.

Some times I feel I have bored a thread out of existence. Don't feel quilty, just wish I wouldn't run off at the mouth so much on certain topics.

Oh well to paraphrase quite a few people It's all fun and games until somebody loses an eye or takes their toys and goes home.

You actually made me look at the thread and I have been transmogrified into something different. Not sure what but have a bad case of the FIDS (feelings of impending doom from Terry Pratchett)

Why would Terry Pratchett cause you doom?

It was, if I am not misquoting, a coinage of an expression/acronym in a couple of his books. FIDS = Feelings of Impending Doom. Pretty sure it was Pratchett but could be wrong.

It was a reference which I worded in an ambiguous way.

Sorry for that.

That might have been me just before a Calculus test.

Pratchett causes everyone doom, that's one of the things that's so fun about him!

Thanks for being so specific, Jon!

I tend to go back and forth on this: At different times, I think I've felt every one of these choices, though I admit to feeling closer to the bottom of the list than the top (just like most of you, apparently).

Modesty? Insecurity? Low self-esteem? Maybe. But you know when you ask someone to kneel before you, there's always the guy who'll take your hand to kiss it, and crush it in his grip...
