Hi sports fans. Have you seen this? Have you noticed? Some misguided fool is going around voting posts down, one after the other. It doesn't matter who has posted, or what the subject is. In ESL threads, in the funny pictures thread, in music threads. Anywhere and everywhere, anyone and everyone gets the down-thumb. Now isn't that special?

@Setanta,
I saw that a few days ago, too. Probably too hard to track down.

@ehBeth,
Warren Zevon wrote that song around 1976....it was terrific for him and for Linda Ronstadt ....... we saw her in DC around 1978...what a voice.

Now if you will excuse me, I have to vote down a bunch of posts because I just might be that asshole.

@Setanta,
If it's a word game I'm playing in. I'll up thumb the current page of down thumbed posts before or after posting my newest answer to the word game.

The thing is—if it bothers you, they are delighting in screwing with you.

This thread is a sexy payoff for him/her.

@tsarstepan,
I’m used to thumb crap, but I laughed out loud when my haikus were thumbed down.

My haikus? Lol!!

This thread is ridicule for the fool--if she wants to think she's won something, that's no skin off my nose.

Ed, what do we have for our winning contestant today?

Johnny, it's a brand new car!

This thread is hilarious. All of the worst offenders of the in-crowd here complaining about down thumbs.

This is like listening to Trump supporters complaining about fake news.

@Setanta,
I'm not sure how many of you know Vonny, she never ventures into the political or anything remotely contentious....just the game and silly threads.....she's very nice but someone has voted her down to zero on one of the game threads. I don't get it, I don't care about the thumbs but I really don't understand why someone would target Vonny.

Everybody on the last page was 0'd. Nobody targeted Vonny.

@glitterbag,
Pages of a wide variety of people who are on haiku threads or those benign game threads are being voted down.

I think everybody's noticed, but it's just harmless shenanigans. Probably some teenager.

@glitterbag,
That's what I found so amusing--Vonny is a harmless and a nice member. So the mad thumber is just obsessively voting people down. Engineer got voted down for a (correct) response in an English as a second language thread. It's idiocy--and it's amusing. Laughoutloud, below your post (above this one), has an appropriate response.

I blame Firefly, not her personally but those she's upset. Once she started arguing with the fascist idiots all her posts started getting thumbed down.

She posts a lot on those threads and at first it was only her posts that got voted down. My guess is that whoever it is that's doing it was upset that FF has so many friends she plays games with that they decided to teach all those people they don't like/know a lesson for engaging with her.

Now they're doing it for attention.

Just a theory, but I think it's a good 'un.
