I've started more threads than many people. My threads move with my interests.
You might be surprised to know I started a zillion threads on architecture and subsequent blah blah, now some years ago. I've started a fair amount of threads on photography, one in the last few days. Nada response, just people looking and leaving.
I don't take this personally, it has to do with who is interested in what, when.
My point, zeros can hurt, but internet suckers like many of us can learn to live with it. For new people beginning to search, they probably all get a bath of ugly on different sites.
