    The first thing I do when I log on is to check my notifications - a new form of fun. And I just got a TD for a fairly innocuous comment on this thread! Am I mortified? Not really!

    Now that's the best idea I read in a long time. Unfortunately I can't hold my liquor or wine. After the 2nd glass I'm under the table asleep.
    Back in my day, we didn't have as many warning labels because people weren't so dang stupid!

    I vote that they stay. They're very easy to ignore if you choose and they're fun if you don't.

    Doesn't bother me in the least to get a thumbs down.

    Also it seems that a lot of times a good post will get a lot of thumbs up, and sometimes they're on posts by people who don't post a lot and sort of went out on a limb expressing something. Those always make me smile, as it's a nice way of the whole group showing that they appreciated it, and I think that encourages people to post more & better posts.

    You can tell the harassers - those who thumbs down an innocuous post out of spite, and that just tells you you did a good job.
