Sometimes on a2k, you and I have agreed on some issues, and greatly disagreed on others. In any case, I do not automatically thumb down Posts I disagree with as I try not to. I thumb down Posts that are exceptionally rude once in a while. Others do thumb down Posts they disagree with, and that is well within the understood usage of thumbing Posts one way or another. Many of us thumb Threads down. Me, for example. I've looked at almost every Thread title on this site over many years, and using the thumbs system for clearing Threads from my New Posts pages is simply housekeeping related to my interests. No reason to be upset if people do that to yours or my own threads.
On how to run a website -
You are using this one for free, as we all are, except for the owner, who pays for it. If you want to set the rules, start your own site.
You are complaining that negative type tags on your Threads are a knock on your name for your musical efforts. But wait -
You are using your screen name as an advertisement for your music career.
A negative tag is the chance you took by making your participation here a kind of upfront advertising.
Time to quit whining.
If I were to bring just a couple of my many internet fans/friends on here and where everyone posts voted down who would begin whining.
When the shoe is on the other foot then this becomes an issue? I see.
I would never subject my "friends" to the hate and malice on this site. I would never subject them to "drugfucked idiot" tags. I would never lead them into a hateful and malicious battle of words that would then follow them around also. NOPE!
As I said I am ashamed of this site. I don't want my thread viewed by no one. NOT with all of the hit and run baiting sewn into them like tares among the wheat. No nutrition there.
The thoughtless way I have seen people handled here their words hijacked their image and nicknames driven into the dirt. A2K is a rotten place.
I saw Arella Mae's nickname Mama Angel i think it was downgraded and insulted until she had to leave in tears and sign up as a new person.
I believe it was Snood who helped her change such an offensive handle.
Arella is one of the tough ones who stood this hateful place out.
And I am supposed to trust that this forum has my best interest at heart?
As I said I have my own "forum" with ten thousand loving and kind members. When spats arise I don't sit there like monkeys in a kangaroo court. I DELETE them. As I said this has only happened twice in two years.
Also my group has the potential of garnering millions of members as the membership to this network is many million strong world wide.
There is a constant love fest going on in my group. Would I bring them here to face this nasty bunch (with a few exceptions)? HELL NO!
And mama angels are welcome there too.
