How Come Nobody Thinks The Stuff I Post Matters?

I keep posting threads here that I think are important yet they seem to just hit bottom like a rock. I am not wanting kudos, or recognition or any acceptance whatsoever. I just want to get info out that I think is important to the liberty movement. Somehow though, nobody even bothers to read or watch the stuff I post for the most part. Am I out of touch with what matters or is it the way I present it? I have the same problem trying to talk to people about what is going on out there. They don't want to hear it. Please give me some insight as to what the heck I do wrong so I can make a difference for the better. I have posted threads of all kinds. I get next to no views. Are they not important or what? Please tell me. I really want to be able to alert people to important stuff. Thanks

i've seen your stuff front

i've seen your stuff front page twice in the recent past.

a lot of it has to do with when you post. sometimes more than the content. i imagine there's a lot of people who just visit the front and "most viewed" page.

don't pay attention to it. keep doin' what you do.

I Don't Care About

front and center. I just REALLY want people to watch "Ring of Power" I guess. I also find it scary that people post about how great the movement is against Monsanto when apparently they just took over the whole government and nobody here seems to know or care. Maybe I over-react to things I read but I try to get feedback on DP and get zip sometimes. It is aggravating to me. Thanks for the response though.

I watched...

...'Ring of Power', due to your mention of it, I think. Very intriguing.

In some cases

I have posted subjects that end up getting responses months after i posted. I think there it just so much info coming in to the DP that its very easy to have your posts lost in the mix in the matter of minutes.. Dont let it get you down, just keep posting... Im sure its being read by somebody

It doesn't get me down so much as it worries me that people on DP aren't hearing it. I usually wait several hours or even days after I learn something hoping someone else will post it because there are a lot of folks out there that post better than I do and I wait to see if it happens. If not, I go ahead and post hoping the info will get out. Most times I find things and someone DOES post it and I don't have to bother with it but sometimes nobody does and I go ahead and do so hoping people will get the info. I couldn't care less about who posts what when, just that the info gets seen and it bugs me when certain info NEVER gets seen. Is it just that I think things are important that aren't? I wonder.

Some Advice

I'm not sure of your intent with this post. If you starting threads just to seek approval, then you have the wrong intent.

As far as what posts the forum responds to, its about timing, luck, and content. I've had downvotes and upvotes but the best thread I started is below...such an innocent thread meant to cheer up the group that was online at a time I thought I needed, so others might too.

I thought it might get a few votes and a few views but that the people that seeing it would think it worthwhile.

Keep in mind that some ideas are meant to be just comments and not thread starters.
The moral of the story is...Post with your heart to help the effort and people will respond.

Thank You

I swear my intent is not self serving. I am frustrated that I have things I want to share that I personally feel are really important and that the info is not getting out there. I don't care about how I am accepted on DP or anywhere else. I am what I am but the INFO is important to me. I have the SAME frustration trying to wake up people that just don't know what is going on around them. Maybe I am being arrogant to think that the stuff I post might help to add to the knowledge of people here but I mean it as a good thing and find it frustrating that I can't get people here to watch or read the stuff I find important and then discuss the topics. Maybe there is just too much info to try to digest. I thought long and hard before posting this thread because I feared it would be taken wrong. It appears to be getting mixed results. I DO post with my heart and often piss people off for it. Thanks for your response. I will learn from it! BTW, LOVE YOUR POST!!!!!!!!!!

skippy

Keep Posting

Your stuff is important

Thanks But What Bothers Me Is

that I post stuff that I think is VERY important like the video "The Ring Of Power" that has actually changed the entire way I view the world and it only had 2 responses. I posted about how Monsanto got the senate to give it absolute power over the government and NOBODY read it. I think it's important stuff yet people here would rather yammer about stuff like what the hell Jim Carrey thinks instead of the freedoms being pulled right out from under them by the likes of Monsanto or how the entire power system started and works. If I ask why, I am accused of having low self esteem or told to get over myself. WHAT IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE? I expect this trash from the sleeping public but not people who claim to be awake on DP! But anyway, thanks for the positive response. Want to charge me for therapy? HAHAHA, thanks again.

Yes, Ira, do typically

Yes, Ira, I do typically recognize humor. But your comment didn't appear funny. Use a stupid smileycon or words that qualify to let us know.

The LAST Thing I Have

is low self esteem. I am losing faith in DP though thanks to people like YOU! I ask for advice and get BS. GROW UP.

Maybe it's your headlines!

Get over yourself.

Post opinions or stories, but please do not post threads just to get attention like this one.

It's Not About Me

Try seeing the stuff I posted and then judge smartass. DP is starting to seem more like a site for childish douchebags interested in stupid crap like some teen magazine instead of what is important. I figured I would reach out for advice and just like the children people here have started sounding like, instead of giving me advice they simply find it easier to attack me. Takes less thought. Thanks for nothing. I have a big bully brother that sounds a lot like you. A lot of people have started complaining about how stupid DP has become since the parent (Ron Paul) left the classroom. I am becoming one of them.

...Not that you're bitter about anything...

Trolls. this one is cheesy.

been around here a longtime too.

don't take the bait and stop feeding them. my posts never get notice either.

peace.

your duty is to tell them, not make them pay attention.

Thank You

I get frustrated when trying to share info. I DO try to remember and not feed trolls. Thanks for the post. My duty is to tell them not make them pay attention! I like that!
