    That would be incorrect usage, Brady. Abuse of the rating system can taken care of by any of the Mods. If you're having an issue let us know.

    The season will start soon. Everyone will be getting the score of the game or tomorrow's starting pitcher. Curious if I'll get likes when the old towne team is behind and dislikes when ahead. Likes for Felix Dubront and dislikes for Beckett? Lester must get likes since he's a Washington kid right. I may pile up both in this scenario.

    Sometimes you have a delivery method that resonates with me. I like that.

    Lugan, damn straight, thanks for reminding me to be on the lookout for you...my dislike button has a hair trigger :D

    KerryS, it's not nice to vote and tell.

    I was making a point about retaliation in using the rating system. You were the perfect example. If you look at the bottom of the post you will see you can list who gave it a thumbs up or down. None of it, is as you say, voting and telling.

    I'm disappointed that already there are folks using the likes and dislikes as payback currency. Grow the hell up you thin skinned bunch of babies. Read someone's post and like it, dislike it or post no rating at all. Don't hold a grudge. Don't leverage them as currency. Give an honest assessment of the posted material, not use it as a BS tool to demonstrate you think someone is a TOOL. Such action proves you to be a stuck in pre-pubescent pimply faced kid mode and not ready for the internet social scene. Back to grandma's basement for you, you can't follow and respect the campfire rules!

    Mine too.

    On the other hand, I could argue that accruing lots of likes OR dislikes might be a good thing. It might be an indication that you are writing about topics that matter and have the backbone to state a strong case, even if it rubs a few people wrong. IMO in the long run after this new system has been exercised by the community, it will be far worse to have, for example, 1,000 posts and only 3 likes and 0 dislikes. That would probably be a person with lots of filler posts like "Nice fish, buddy!". I won't be that guy, I guarantee it. You won't either Freestone.

    Thanks for everyone's feedback. A lot of it offline.

    Going to move forward with likes and drop the dislikes. Perhaps I'll revisit that approach down the road but for now, it seams it's going to cause some distraction I'd rather not deal with at the moment. Who's stupid idea was that anyway?...

    Ya, no need for the dislikes. Ed can already picture me hitting that button every time he posts. That's good enough for me.
