Ding from a wussie

Discussion in 'Open Discussion (Work-safe)' started by BuckeyeBeliever, Aug 10, 2004.

  1. surprise, surprise, they didn't sign, but they gave me a negative...

    this, because I though Sushi gave a very heart felt post on her beliefs...

    see post:

    to the dinger, you are a wussie.

    come on, be strong, don't be a wimp, sign your posts sissy.

    Crying about a negative comment on a message board isn't too manly either

    I think BB's correct - if you're going to ding someone for a post, you should have the balls to sign it. If you don't feel so upset about a post that you don't believe you need to sign your ding, then you shouldn't be dinging that person in the first place... Maybe BB and I are the only ones who take an anonymous opinion as little more than meaningless... Hell, even if you do sign it - in this medium, it's still anonymous, more or less.

    No disrespect BB, but I gotta go with the 'swallow hard and be quiet' argument. Most of the negatives are anonymous and - while the merits of posting that way in general may merit debate (and it has been debated) - creating a thread to respond to each one only clutters the board.

    One enhancement I would like to see to rep posts is the ability to respond to the poster even though you don't know who it is (some sort of reply button on rep). Sometimes the negative is based on a simple misunderstanding of the intent of the original post. In any case it would probably make folks 'feel better' about getting zinged. Not that I consider it a big issue.

    If you don't like negative reps, whether signed or not, then don't frequent the political boards. Nothing divides a group like a political discussion.

    Stay on the Football board and you probably won't see a negative rep. I've learned to try staying away from the political boards, they just get everone pissed about something.

    If you comlain about a negative rep in a post, it's just asking for more. Just ignore them.

    This is the second thread I've seen you start to complain about getting dinged. Go ahead and ding away for this, but it seems like you care a bit too much about your reputation points...

    Since it wasn't Tibor, I think FKA should surrender v$20 on general principle..

    No way man. I meant the first ding...:biggrin: Besides, that was more of lame comedic shot over Tibor's bow than anything else.
