jimgo -

It was worse than that, he was an in-law.
Allright, enough thread drift.

I used to work with someone who had cards printed up that read:

"Your sincere criticism is deeply appreciated.
F*** you very much."

He only gave them to certain individuals.

FWIW, I like the "like" idea.

I believe there is already a pretty potent system for negative reinforcement in place. Being on the receiving end of some of the retorts is not a pleasant experience.

Re: "Rep" power... what is it?

You can still 'add' rep to a user if you choose.. there's a 'scale' icon on the top of each post.. click on that and you can give the poster a specific 'attaboy' and eventually you'll build up rep points (visible in your userCP) and up your rep number. As Donna said, no one uses that anymore since 'likes' were implimented.

In the olden days of the "rep" system you had the option to give a user a 'negative' rep point - essentially a 'dislike'. That feature created a lot of grief and strife and the rep system went to a 'positive' reinforcement model at that time, much like the current 'like' system.

That would make for an even more interesting atmosphere around here.

Or have a thumbs up and a thumbs down and a count next to each?

Absent that, the moderators encourage everyone to make use of the Report Post button if a post is found to be objectionable. We do take note of the people who end up with a lot of reported posts and keep an eye on them.
