I doubt many of us were expecting even that much. Wink

On the Amazon fora, each post gets tagged (I'll call it) with, "Do you think this adds to the discussion," and we can vote yes or no. It's often called upvoting or downvoting. There are a few people who can get annoyed or irate over one downvote.

Here you can rate users - your ratings show up as "reputation" when you post. Your's is still a zero since you are new. When you see someone with a negative rating, they are usually dicks.

We've gotten tired of the trolls and the inconsistent monitors, who banished a couple of our best posters (mostly for complaining about the trolls). We followed Dorsie over.

Hmm. Good reason to bail. We get to hammer the trolls into paste, if we want. They usually get banned, though. Some people like to chew on them; more power to them. I personally ignore them, unless they interfere with me directly. That hasn't happened here.

I wondered what "reputation" meant here, thanks.

I know the type. We have one poster who wishes he could believe in a god and is often tiresome and whiny. True, he's suffered some major losses, but all of us have and most don't continue to roll in the grief.
