Re: Likes - Member choice, Dislikes - Admin choice
I've proposed some sort of variation of this before. As I see it, the membership should only have the "Like" selection available.

I would put the "Dislike" choice into the hands of the various admins, where the dislike is based on the forum guidelines.

I agree with this. The thumbs down rating has become a place where some people are just continuing their personal attacks. As Artemis Ent freely admits.

How about addressing the posts and tell me why all of my posts deserve a thumbs down.

Because I don’t like you, or anything you have to say. I have wasted enough time on you to type this out, please ignore me as I ignore you.

Maybe you should read the rule.

5.Bare links with no supporting discussion should be avoided.

should be avoided.

I think at times providing information that shows a person is in error is very appropriate. I am simply showing that your simplistic idea of the term "socialized medicine" is incorrect. Do you want me to put in 2 paragraphs of bullshit so that your and AdminPD's sensibilities are not offended?

I know you have a hard on for me CS, but if you are going to continue to be wrong I am going to continue to correct you.

Re: Change to URLs in Messages
Why did the new formatting work in Message 33?
But not in Message 34?

Facts don't lie or have an agenda. Facts are just facts

"God did it" is not an argument. It is an excuse for intellectual laziness.

If your viewpoint has merits and facts to back it up why would you have to lie?

Re: Change to URLs in Messages
I like the change. It gives people an idea of what the link is as opposed to a url that is truncated and meaningless. I rarely use url= because of laziness. This way most links will get a description.
I hope you keep it.
