    Default Why?

    Since you people are all at it, I may as well start off questioning the worthwhileness of introductory threads.

    Would someone try and convince me that they are not worthless and not without merit?

    Aren't we a bit vain making threads with a primary purpose of bringing friendly attention to ourselves?

    It gets the post count up to '1'.

    And why do you wish to have your post count at least at 1? And what is all this mania about status and the drive to get to this or certain number so your 'label' can change from junior member or member to something that looks better?

    Again this points a finger to human vanity that I've taken note of.

    Well, you see, rainfall, I'm going to guess no one is going to waste their time trying to justify introductory threads to you, because I don't think anyone really cares as much about it as you do.

    It's like shaking hands.

    It's expected socially and complying makes you seem capable willing to conform to social patterns.

    So do it because
    • You agree with the sentiment
    • You disagree but wish to present a mask of agreement

    I never said that I agree or disagree. My approach is impersonal. I like playing devil's advocate, so I could easily be arguing against something that I agree with. I usually try to set my posts up in a way that what I say tells one more about the subject that I've commented on rather than about me.
