I should depart this forum (part 2)

Post by Kuznetzova » Sun Jul 28, 2013 7:09 pm

Why should I continue to post elaborate articles on this forum when nobody is reading them?

Why should I waste my time any longer on this silly forum?

Why did you make a second thread? That's what I want to know. You had your answers in the first thread. You can only try to appear more appetizing, you can't force people to become interested in what you write.

No Voice of Time -- you merely explained to me why you personally do not put responses in those threads. That says nothing in regards to why there are ZERO TOTAL REPLIES from everyone here. And not just once, but many many times.

How many times is this supposed to continue? How many more times should I waste my time here writing beautiful, fully-fleshed out articles with citations only to have no one read them at all, or to get short stupid senseless replies?

Until you grow tired. I have unanswered threads as well. Upon my inquiry I was told this: viewtopic.php?p=136284#p136284

A 90-minute long lecture presentation on the metaphysics of time by Lee Smolin. It gets zero replies on this forum. What kind of shill game are we running here?

There are hundreds, if not thousands, of philosophy lecturing videos on youtube. What I don't get is what's so special about yet another one?

Perhaps more people would be interested if you acted more like Socrates.

Ask one interesting question at a time and react to people´s reactions.

The general problem with long expositions may be that people have to estimate in advance whether the investment of their attention (mental energy) will be worth it or not.

That is why I try to put my thoughts in a nutshell. Then people are more likely to read them.

You could use baits (intricate philosophical questions).

I imagine a whole lot of fish here who would take a try.

If I may make a suggestion.



DON'T LEAVE.



This forum is definitely better for you.



If I may suggest shorter posts, more focused threads, and MORE OF YOUR OPINIONS.



You're a good kid and I think you have some GREAT topics in you...

In general ALL your posts are pure nonsens, that is illogically and unsound. You don't make a clear point but spew too many random words and anologies, which we can't really relate to.

People likes to respond IF you actually made a point out of that lecture.
