I just recently passed the 5000 thumbs watermark, and it got me reflecting on what I've been posting here over the years.

In all humility, I think I've made some interesting observations now and again, but by far the majority of my thumbs have been awarded for...snarky comments.

And this makes me sad.

So.

I've decided that for the next week, I'm only going to say nice things to and about people.

Or not say anything at all (which is very difficult for me).

Thanks to all you great BGG members for all of your support!

Cheers, H.

Well, see, the snarky comment may be a little bit mean to the object of the snark, but it's a service to alllll the rest of us.

So send happy nice GeekMails and post the snark here.

the best reason for posting in chit-chat: "because it's funny!"

FWIW, I've never thought of you as particularly snarky. Snark implies meanness, and you ain't got a mean vibe...

So, keep on with the witty rejoinders!

Good luck, it is so much easier to make sarcastic comments in the anonymity of a forum like this than in person.

Yep, because you can get punched in the face for it in real life.

No I DON'T wanna stop TALKING ABOUT IT. Because YOU'RE SO GOOD. Have you seen the bears? The bears come around and it's very nice. In the night sky the smiling moon

I usually just get punched in the shoulder. I've gotten used to it mostly.

I pretty much think you're the victim of your avatar, Hunga. I mean, Groucho wasn't exactly known for all the complimentary and supportive things he said. He got the big bucks because he insulted people right and left! And we loved it!

Be true to your avatar. And to Chit Chat. Snark away! (Just leave me out of it!)
