Have you heard? Joining the legendary ranks of personally named laws, of which Murphy must be the best known, I can boast of one sharing my name. There is indeed something called "Ardith's Law" and it comes complete with mugs, hats, t-shirts, and bumper stickers. I am not kidding you.
I'm not sure when the nature it describes was first noted, and then defined, but it couldn't be too old.
A law of forum behavior:
The intensity of observed responses in a thread is exponentially proportional to the number of posts about the subject which have already been made.
Having surfed a few forums in my day, I have to chuckle at this spot-on description of human nature. Oh, how we love to chime in with our two cents, don't we?
I think I should get me one of those sweatshirts, don't you think?
