Whichever way it goes looks like I'll have to build my rep back up.

Well, I just got cheated out of getting a like in the NYC Bust thread, because someone ran out ... AGAIN!

 

Therefore, for you people who just can't control yourselves, (Juthro, SPS, you know who I'm talking about) I think we should have an online meeting place for, "Over-Likers Anonymous."  You guys just can't stop at a Like or two.   You just go berserk, liking here, liking there.  Next thing, there y'all are, crying, "I'm sorrrrrry, I ran out of Likes."   Well, boo hoo, boys.  Man up and stop being so.... so liberal! 

 

Henh.

I think the likes can get thrown around a little lightly some times however I am guilty of this as well.

However I think that if there is a post or thread that is truly wrong that someone would wish to give a negative
Rep or a dislike to that poster then maybe it would be a wise time to use the report post function and let a mod or admin look into the issue. If you truly dislike something it would give a more anonymous way to let some one know and not worry about abuse or retaliation

That's how I have usually dealt with it.   Plus, I like that as a buffer, in case I am misreading, possibly taking something wrong, or just generally out to lunch.  It puts it to a jury, so to speak.  

 

Something would have to be pretty bad: blatant aggression, trolling, bigotry, fucktardism, shit disturbing, etc., before I would want to go farther than just trying to talk it out reasonably.  I would not be easily wanting to publicly brand someone, unless they said something bad about my cat.

Hahahahahahaha....................I'm so freaking guilty of "overlike" I think I'll chair the meeting..............who is making coffee?

 

See........I "like" a ton of what gets said here and I tend to not respond to things that I disagree with (unless it's mean, blatantly incorrect, or simply poor advice) so I guess my understanding of usage vs functionality needs defined in context.

 

All I know is that this texting, smart phone, digitally connected world is becoming more and more impersonal and paradoxically disconnected (for various reasons) so wee need to stay on top of our communicative skillsets................. yeah yeah....Hey Martha........Arathu's babbling again!
