Having received requests & complaints, I am sadly no longer going to be thumbing 1000 page Shreve posts.

That said, I refuse to give up on Frank and the horrors of fiat currency.

Re: resolution on thumbing.
Great, one more step to the Echo Chamber. As the shadow bullies go around whispering to each other not to thumb certain people in the hopes they go away.

Why doesnt the hivemind get a secret sub forum created so they can go canoodle with each other in there so they can avoid all the big bad meanies they have to deal with?

Re: resolution on thumbing.
Wait why would anyone care what you thumb? It doesn't affect them in any way as far as I'm aware.

It's a "Don't encourage them" sentiment I believe.

Re: resolution on thumbing.
If you're hemmimg and hawing over whether or not to thumb a post, here's a few things to consider...

*In the play-by-forum games over at RPG Geek people thumb posts just to acknowledge to the group/GM that they've read them.

*I ran a recent contest where one of the prizes was I'd go thumb 50 of the winner's posts.

*Over at GeekQuestions they have what's called thumb bombing where a user thumbs every answer to a question just to make the users there (an odd but closely knit community) happy.

So, if in doubt, thumb the damn post. I'm not saying you should become tickmanfan over in Chit Chat, but it wont kill you to brighten someone's day.

I figured, but I find the evolution of thumbs interesting so wanted to chime in. I think it would be interesting if they brought back the "Thumbs Down" option for exclusive RSP usage.

Did the Shadow Hivemind peer pressure you into changing that?

HAHA laugh This reminds me of a cartoon I saw today with a crying kid shaking his fists and throwing a tantrum yelling "The Orange Meanie Is Bad!"

You can thumb the thread "Onward Trumpite Dominionists" and that will take care of a whole raft of Shreve TL/DR posts

Ah! As the person who asked him to quit thumbing posts he didn't actually like, please allow me to correct you.

Suppose someone uses the site's block feature to filter out posts from users who have established an unacceptably low quality:quantity ratio. This person might happily zoom through whole pages like the one below, unhindered by stupid garbage. If there's really something in there worth reading, people with more time on their hands can thumb it up, and this person will click to read it.


Now, suppose this person sees that several other users have recommended one of these collapsed posts; but, rather than a decent one-liner, it explodes into a 20-page screed castigating someone for not replying to the previous 20-page screed which was posted 11 hours ago, and which contains 12 hours of YouTube videos. The most immediate effect, of course--once they recover from the shock, disorientation, and nausea--is a marginal decrease in their goodwill toward their fellow man. Their hope for the future dimmed, they spiral into alcohol & other drug abuse; unable to effectively communicate their shame for having brought children into such a brutally stupid world, they lash out at their kids with verbal & physical violence, leaving a wake of brokenness spreading outward into future generations of RSP posters.

Additionally, the two minutes of scrolling it took them to get back to the "hide" link spikes their risk of repetitive stress injury, resulting in constant, career-ending pain, leaving them unemployable precisely when they need money most. Unable to support their family, they finally go on a multi-state rampage of torture & murder, taking their list of targets from the users who thumbed the post which drove them over the edge. And, with their debilitating carpal tunnel syndrome, naturally their weapon of choice has to be lineman spikes.

So, that's why you should only thumb posts which are actually worth reading. As I'm sure I told windsagio, never mind the likelihood that someone will stab him in the face over and over; won't he think of the children?

Glad we could straighten that out.
