I find these "Thumbs" amusing, if not a waste of space!! Someone went back over 3 months and gave me a thumbs down for commending a poster on how she handled trespassers. I cried myself to sleep last night!!!
See - right away you got a "0 out of 4 members appreciated this post" Some'one' has several aliases and has their string wound way too tight! and yes this is internet stalking, the person is obviously staking you out - the mods really should be concerned that this is what it has turned into.
The truth is what you can get other people to believe.
For some reason, this makes me think of the movie Field of Dreams? "If you build it, they will come".
ETA - Never done it, never will. If I feel like saying something, I'll post. I'm not a fan of the thumbs, either way.
Right, it is there, why not find a use for that, silly as that use seems?
A similar principle is making people keep pulling on those one armed bandit machines, conveniently placed where the most traffic is.
