    I wish there was a rating that said something like "unconstructive". Cuz there is oh so much of that around here, on certain threads.

    btw the mods posted a poll to see what folks thought of the thumbs - so let your voice be heard!

    I actually find this thread to be hilarious, and good for a hearty morning laugh! I would love to have similar threads here and there, so I have somewhere to go for comedy, as needed. Laughing is good for the soul.

    And as far as being un-constructive... c'mon, how much on the COTH board is truly constructive? Is that a requirement? And if you don't like a thread, boo-hissers, then just don't read it!

    Personally, I'd like to see more threads that can bring me a laugh. I can then choose to read as desired, when I am bored and in need of entertainment.

    Although I have to admit that when I get a red thumb, it hurts my feelings, just a teensie, itty bit.

Hello advertisers, would you be interested in some data? I'm old fashioned (funny thing for being a programmer), but I prefer to express my self through commentary or silence and refrain from quick ego strokes that say little.
    Got proof of that? I'd be interested in seeing it!

    xctrygirl, JBR-- I'm not hissing AT YOU. I'm hissing that others were downrating you for asking a question. Sorry to be unclear. I'm hissing at what I regard as uncool treatment you got for asking your question.

    ===================
    And what the F$$$ is the problem of people who keep downrating me for clarifying my initial unclear statement? Get over yourselves.

    Out of curiosity, I looked back and every single bad rating I received (except 1 thread where I think it was the OP red thumbing everyone who disagreed with her) was on threads discussing red/green thumbs!

    Obviously, some people feel very strongly about this!

    I just gave a TD to a comment I thought was unnecessary! If the poster only gets one TD then they will know it is from me, in the interests of disclosure.
    I think the whole TU/TD is a bit unnecessary, and now someone has suggested they are for tracking I'm beginning to get paranoid! Otherwise, I'm quite curious to know what people think of me, but it should not be annonymous. It is cowardly to post annonymously.

    Which comment did you give a red thumb to?

    As for being anonymous, most of us are. My real name isn't saje, and I'd be very surprised if yours is Foxtrot's. (Foxtrot's what, btw?)

    Why are our identities anonymous? I don't quite get that... but then I've not been on the forum for very long. And my identity is obvious (ahbaumgardner and Kirkwood Sporthorses), which is fine with me.

    I did say most, not all. You chose to use your name and put a lot of information about yourself in your profile. That's great, you run a business, you need the exposure. But there are a lot of people here who do not put any info at all, myself included. Apart from people that I already know IRL, I wouldn't recognize 90% of the posters here if I ran into them at a show. And even if I did figure out who someone was, I doubt highly I'd remember any specific post of theirs.

    Foxtrot's isn't my name but it is the name of our farm and the pre-fix to our
    horse's names.

    But the thing is, as I see it, while you may not know ME personally, you can counter my comments on the board, not just TU or TD. Quite a lot of my notifications, good and bad, have been on this very subject: seems like it touches a nerve with some people. Again, I don't think they serve any useful purpose..but I look at them anyway.
