I've got someone who follows me around, marking down all my posts. Ces't la vie. I probably don't read what they write much either..

@panzade,
While I appreciate the love, somehow I think that post was below your standards.. Wink

@Ceili,
I thumbed you up too. You must have pissed somebody off along the way and they haven't got the linguistic skills to get back at you, so they resort to thumbing.
I often thumb people up if they make me laugh or make a good point or sometimes just to support them and I often thumb down people who are spouting hatred and racism etc.
I didn't think there was anything wrong or odd with thumbing up or down?.

@eurocelticyankee,
Thumbing up euro for thumbing up Ceili, and I often thumb up Panz just because of his writing style as a starter and besides that he's smart. But, never mind all that, I concur with euro's take.

I'm one who does use the ignore system; it makes my reading, and I read a lot of a2k, less of a bilious experience. Thus, there are a lot of down thumbs not happening day to day.

But how do you know who voted down your post?
I mean, i know i'd never win a popularity contest here, so it could
anyone of literally thousands . . . tens of thousands ! . . . of people.
I can 't imagine Y !

I just voted up this post of yours.
Its a way of expressing agreement,
or a hearty hand shake or a pat on the back.

On seldom occasions, u have said things with which I agree.
A few of your acrimonious invectives have actually had merit.
As trial lawyers say, for the record: "I join in that."
Hitting the upward vote is faster than typing that.


In regard to most posts, I don 't vote them up or down.

Some posts r so ugly, sometimes using obscenity,
that I don't want it befouling the page in front of me,
so I cause it to vanish. (On some occasions, I have done this
to posts of people who vote in November, the same way that I do.)

I have no opinion concerning whether some posters
vote down everything, but we know that some of the denizens
hereof have openly admitted to very severe mental disturbances,
some of which have been candidly designated; that is not to say
that ALL mental misfits have so declared themselves.
( I am certain that some members consider me to be in that category. )

I have never had any objection to having my posts voted down,
nor to my being put on Ignore. Everyone who wishes to avoid
my posts shud do so.

@panzade,
Oh, I never vote down game threads. I check the author to see if they have posted to anything but the games on their first page. If they haven't, I put them on ignore. Unlike the occasional spammers, they keep coming back. When I look in in the early hours of the morning, I sometimes see ten or more consecutive "user ignored", not unlike some of the political threads I try to follow.

I'd never put the Bosun on ignore, of course.

I have never ever voted any post up or down. I just do not do it...and I do not pay any attention to what happen in that regard with my posts.

If anyone is just voting your posts down for no reason other than to kick you, he/she is a jerk. Anyone who is doing that to anyone is a jerk.

We don't agree on a hell of a lot, Set...but your posts (where you are not skewering me) are almost always interesting and informative. Screw the ratings!

They could use you right now. They could use somebody.

Christ, I never thought I would say this, but George W. and Dan Quayle were really not all that bad compared to this crew.

In RJB's thread about the Republican nominating race, someone (at least two someones) has voted down a post of Frank's. Even having started this thread, i don't go around looking for this stuff, but i happended to notice the "-1" score. The post doesn't attack any other member here, and it doesn't attack any of the Republican hopefuls--so obviously, the response is either to Frank personally or to his politics.

How petty . . . to the people who do **** like that: Grow up!

Oh my god! I expressed an opinion!

OK, here's my take on that incident. Frank didn't bad mouth anyone, not a member, not a Republican candidate. Frank's political opinions are well known. So what was the purpose of voting down that post? To express disapproval of his well known political opinion? You still read his post, dummies. If he is that offensive to you for his opinions, put him on ignore.

By the way, based on the criterion Roger outlined earlier in the thread, i'm pretty sure i know who at least one of these jokers was.

Yes I do. I vote up posts that I find interesting, insightful, or funny. I vote down posts that I find spammy, abusive, or grossly off-topic. Finally, I tend to vote up posts if I feel they have been voted down unfairly. That last part embarrasses me a little. Why vote up a post if I wouldn't vote up on its merits alone? But what do you know, it's what I do.

We have a "Bosun"?? = Boatswain? Really?

No, though I have occasionally thumbed down threads.
