I'll think of something witty to put here...

I was just reading a recent geeklist about "games I like" and it struck me that all the games in that list are ones I feel are mediocre or have a "meh" reaction to.

Normally if I see someone post something which implies they have a similar taste in games to myself, I will geekbuddy them, since the data from their ratings can be useful. Therefore I suggest the consideration of some kind of feature where we can have the "inverse" of "geekbuddy" i.e. it provides a similar amount of information, but on what NOT to buy! (Itend to dislike abstracts and pseudo-abstracts (knizia), war-board-games etc.)

PS I mean this in a friendly way- despite my avatar I am NOT trying to find a way to create new enemies (I already have enough enemies thank you very much), merely a way to get more accurate reccomendations.

I, too, would like this function and it wouldn't have to be tracked or visible to other members.

There are a few people that I would like to group together as Geekbuddies, but not add them as "buddies".
