Fuck. ... Consider ... I never even thought of it that way before. I use the like button a lot for posts I find interesting and/or entertaining but generally just ignore the rep shit. ... Doesn't look like I've repped you yet, and now I'm not sure whether to give you a positive for your excellent poetry and pleasant disposition or a negative for pointing out cracks in Girly's solipsistic world view. ... Aw fuck it, don't think I've ever given negative rep before (Chas can check me on this) so I guess I'll spend the rest of the day trying to figure who I should've repped because I really appreciate the totality of their contributions and haven't acknowledged it. ... Fuck, this is gonna take some time and effort.

So sorry to have upset your day but I'm happy to have made a difference.

And thank you for those kind words.


I have been wondering about how people use the 'like'. I use it as do you and perhaps am a little bit more generous to newbies than with the old-timers.

What I've really noticed recently is that some people seem really hard to impress i.e. their 'received' vastly outweighs their 'given'. Ghost is the really obvious example but there are many more.

If I was a better analyst I'd be tempted to look for some patterns. I'm not, so instead... an hypothesis... the higher the intelligence (judging by articularityness / education / worldliness) the lower the 'likes given' count.

Consider

There does intelligence = arrogance or obliviousnessosity?

From what nether region you pull that hypothesis out of? A more obvious hypothesis is the lower the ratio between likes given and likes received the more arrogant and less empathetic the member is.

Intelligence is most certainly not positively correlated with arrogance. In fact it's probably inversely correlated. In my job I work with a number of world class universities. The gods in their field never come across as arrogant. In fact they will go out of their way to try to bring the cookies down to a shelf low enough for me to reach without exhibiting even a hint of frustration. The wannabe gods on the other hand, well they can be arrogant fucking pricks who just dismiss me out of hand if I don't immediately appreciate the "genius" of their work. ... I typically respond by cutting off their funding 'cause I don't understand what they're doing. ... Fucking idiots.

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.
