    Never been in an argument on this board, but I felt that a lot on TRMK when I'd get into an argument with someone. TBH I'm not a great arguer in the first place.

    the only thing worse than nobody agreeing of you is when only one person does

    or when you post something and get nothing and then the next post makes the same point and gets LOADS!!!

    Panther, don't take it personally. I still respect you as a member and I wasn't trying to bait thumbs. I know that can sting. I would have expressed my disagreement regardless, but don't think of it as sides where one person won and the other lost.

    I would give that a thumbs up if I could.

    Yeah, on another forum I use that doesn't have a thumbs-up feature, somebody will quote the post and put plus signs. Pretty pointless.

    no, it just encourages a certain style of posting that i don't like it. and you know you guys can give your own opinions by saying the same thing in a different way. plus the feature now is so ugly and obtrusive, unlike a few years ago when the thumbs was in the corner of the post and only showed who thumbed it up if you hovered of the button.

    every other forum i go to doesn't have the feature, and i never see a "this" or "+" post. you guys must be looking at some garbage forums.

    and it's funny how panther's in favour of the thumbs, given the subject matter of this blog post.

    thumbs are fine. quick and painless way to say you agree, but i still try to make an effort to make some sort of post in agreeance with it in spite of that.

    also YEAH re: the question of this blog
