I'm shooting for the "large balls" balls.png award.

 

 

My new profile pic 'thing' will be to steal prominent members/mods avis and bastardize them and use those.. I need photoshop back though. @zen will be first. It's not stealing, it's "sampling".  :biggrin:

A sample is only a sample if you use a part of it. If you use the whole thing it is stealing! But take 2!or 3 of them and put it together in one then you have anmash up!

What was this thread about again ?

The like system allows us to say we like this , saying this was useful and giving external validation to the poster.

If I don't like a post I can provide information opposing the post in a civil way proving my point.

Take away the likes and a person receives no external validation. I would bet this would slow down the spread of info, as likes are a reward system often used in behavior modification.

Everyone wants external validation despite what they say.


To add a unlike function will have effects on the whole website. A person receiving negative input is likely to feel disconnected from the community and unlikes could result in people having problems with others due to a feeling of rejection. Dividing us and causing trolling and people leaving.

If I really don't like what I read in a post I ignore it and move on. I suppose that is a form of shunning and a very powerful statement in its own right.

Some time we don't like what a person posts and we as a community try to help this person without condemnation and judgment.

 I had a better post but lost it as I started to write , I speak better than I write and I type so slow that I often lose my best thoughts on any subject.

I need a cat my last cat was more like a cougar only lived 20 years . She was a domamatrix to the dogs.
 I was just telling my wife I want a cat. My sister has provided people with great cats.

I am extremely interested in the domestication of cats and know that cats were very useful to people in ancient times.
So useful that they helped people to survive.
