I just wish this option would go away. Rating a thread might be useful; rating a person just seems like a sneaky way to punish anyone you don't happen to like. Can't we just use the Ignore button in the profile, and forget they anonymous insult - which is how it's going to be taken?

Oh, yes, there are other threads to post comments like this in. I want it to be a separate discussion. Vote on that!

Yeah I don't care much for the rating system either.

@roger,
I am going to make special brownies for EVERYONE!

I am kidding Roger...I think it will be fine. Really - you don't have to look at your reputation ever. I am sorry I pointed that out...started out as funny - Shocked

@mismi,
Kind of wish the PMs were working, mismi. I've already seen a darker side to the system. You know? it's a case of generally agreeing with the voting majority, but not being willing to hurt the feelings of someone who is basically a nice person. I don't like it, and I'm not going to like it.

We had this feature on the old Abuzz forum. I didn't like it there, either.

Why do I have to sit in the back of the classroom?

Craven explained it pretty thoroughly on one of the recent Olde A2K threads to prepare us for the change. (I'll be back with a link if I can nab it.)

@roger,
I love it! It is so childish and immature. I feel like a kid again!

I just put a thumbs up by all of roger's posts. I also gave gargamel one on a different thread. I've been very busy.

Have I been using the rating system? Or are we speaking of something else?

Someone toss me a clue.

Here's the thread on the voting business -

http:///able2know.org/topic-120756-1

It shows as a link, but doesn't work.

It might show up later as a topic on craven's TOPICS, found by clicking on his screen name and choosing topics (it's @3 in a series of 4 preparation for the move topics.. I didn't find it now at first glance, though I found #2 and #4, and they work.

@Linkat,
Exactly.

I hate it.

I'm not going to use it.

Please make it go away.

@roger,
I just posted that somewhere else - I don't remember where though as you can
get lost very easily now.

Anyway, once you have lost your reputation, life seems so much more uninhibited, and that's where I live by.

Does anyone have a GPS for this site?
