Seriously, are you that much in need of personal glory that would add to your 'thumbs earned' list with such cheap chicanery?

Sorry dudes, but get a life!

I never do it, but seriously, sometimes everyone says something that they feel really good about and no one else appreciates. I can understand. So go ahead, give yourself a thumb for me. (But just one, and it better be your last.)

As for me, I'd never thumb myself. I don't even know where that thing's been, for goodness sakes!


...er, wait...what?!

FYI: Self-thumbs don't contribute to your thumb count.

Really? That's a relief! Once I clicked involuntarily on one of my posts' thumbs-up button, and I felt dirty for a week thereafter.

Thumbing ones self is not nearly as bad as logging 200 plays a day of some long game just to be the top player of the month every month.

Being that the months reset every month there is no link sadly but there was a user that appears to be gone now who was logging over 200 plays of DOOM a day. His total played games had over 300,000 and it was all just stats murdering, 500 games of so and so one day etc.

You know what is really sad? People who have a need to feel superior to and belittle others. What makes it worse is doing it on a site filled with admitted geeks.

Another FYI: If you accidentally thumb something, clicking on the thumb button again will cancel the thumb.

Have you ever heard of the phrase, "If you aren't cheating, you aren't trying?" That seems to apply here, although I loath cheating.

Our society doesn't seem to care much about college cheats, tax cheats, baseball cheats, videogame cheats, or relationship cheats, so why should this mini-society (BGG) care about thumb-cheats?

I don't really condone any form of cheating, but I also really don't care about users who thumb themselves. It's pretty low on my list of irritants. In fact, it's not even ON my list of irritants.
