    so yeah I see people undoing negative ratings...but just lost positive as well...and gained negative...but NO record of who...

    so my last customer is named Elinor who is 92 years buying two 3 gal. Sycamore trees...one for her and one for her neighbor...

    she said if she lived a year longer that would be great....and it reminded me of this thought on the meaning of life...

    ""The true meaning of life is to plant trees, under whose shade you do not expect to sit."" ~Nelson Henderson...

    ""If I knew I should die tomorrow, I would plant a tree today."" ~Stephen Girard

    so with that...MERRY CHRISTMAS to ALL!!!!!!!!!!!!

    It tells you who gave you the negative rating.

    Got to thinking...(which I've been told is dangerous)...if you don't have ANY negative ratings then you're NOT posting anything intellectually honest...nobody's perfect...and everybody disagrees w/the crowd AT SOME time or other...

    on the other hand...extreme negative ratings...(more than 10% let's say)... obviously means either trolling or just a downer type of personality...

    For example...look at Bill...(ps...thanks for the tip)...seems like he's honest & open...might not agree always...hence some negative marks...but NOT excessive...so that's LIFE in a nutshell...CHERISH it...

    Treat other's as you'd like to be treated...just BE honest...it's OK...

    Merry Christmas!

    I come to message boards for amusement, not to be intellectually honest or dishonest. I don't believe I've ever posted in Too Hot (which is where a lot of the negative ratings occur)……too much stress over there and I already have enough stress in every day life :D

    Fair enough...but have you ever posted in swamp gas?

    Do you agree 100% of the time w/coaching or player or even poster decisions...

    Yes...sugar & spice & everything nice is awesome....but a little hot sauce or a touch of sour is sometimes a good thing!

    WRT the negative ratings - I think you can get negative ratings and then they get cancelled out later. I'd gotten a couple of them and then after getting a bunch more positive ratings they "disappeared". That or the person/people changed their opinion.

    I think that the negatives you received were rescinded by the person who gave them. There are lots of folks with tons of positives and they still have negative ratings. I am one of them :)

    I'm not sure that "disagree" should be a negative. "Dislike" and "dumb" seem bad, but disagree is just that.

    If I type that my favorite color is blue (and orange of course), and someone gave me a disagree because their favorite color is red, should that reflect negatively on my posting history?

    Might be true, but I've seen some folks just go around and not post much of anything but at the same time give out negative ratings to multiple people. For lack of a better word, it's quite trollish imo.

    I post in Swamp Gas a lot. When I disagree with folks, I just respond with whatever my counterpoints are. I don't see need to by hitting people with negative rep unless they're just acting like a-holes.

    But that's just me.

    I see some posters who hit the dislikes and disagrees like nobody's business, but don't even post their own thoughts. Seems kinds childish, but is what it is.

    I think the negative ratings are lame. My negative rating was 10, then next day it was 20, when no one gave me a negative rating. Very weird.

    Have to say I disagree. In general I find the new system much more efficient. To me it eliminates the need to make countless redundant posts saying I agree or disagree. Even tho some posters (not you) still seem to post just for the sake of posting or pointless arguing. After awhile it is rare to see a new rationale/thought on most threads.

    I actually liked the "dumb" icon, seemed rather appropriate in many cases. At least it should be replaced with a "huh" or something similar for some of the absurd posts I read. Personally, Im not too concerned with how many neg/pos points I get. Im sure if I ventured over to the insanity of the wing nut forum I could rack up massive negative rep in no time.:D

    Happy New Year!
