Dumb culture
« on: September 25, 2018, 05:44:55 pm »
Is there a way to turn this off?  Do we really have to mark people's posts with insults?  Is this a wonderful way to foster respectful debate between grown adults?

1st prize to 1st person to mark this as "dumb" lol

I can tell how good of a person you are by how you treat the people you disagree with.

I can't turn off just dumb, I have to turn it all off.  I like the reactions.

Can you change the text ?  Something like "Fun" or "O..K"

He's much happier and much less challenged over at redneckville. Different handle of course.

You have a very fragile ego if you can be this butt-hurt by a stranger on the interwebs.  Take a break Waldo....  take a walk in the sun.

if you perceive an anonymous persona can have an ego, what does your incessant long-standing practice of dumb-tagging posts say about yours... with board stats indicating you've taken the time/effort to apply 1785 dumb tags to the posts of your fellow board members? What is the impact upon your anonymous persona when you apply your perceived buttHurtingDumbTags to the posts of your fellow board members?

note: updated stats now show the burrowing weasel has chosen to dismiss other member's posts with a dumbTag 2119 times!.

purrfect! The shyte-faced burrowing weasel took exception to having his most indiscriminate dumb-tagin' highlighted... once again. As I said in the post he's now deleted, it clearly gives the member squiggy purpose to simply dismiss other members time/effort in researching and posting - to dismiss those posts with a mightySquiggyDumbTag! Clearly, in regard the waldo's posts, the azzhole squiggy also took exception to having his "clever ruse" (LOL) in substituting the informative tag for the dumb tag revealed. Talk about squiggyButthurtin in having board stats reveal the weasel's penchant for dumb tagin'!

Waldo is banned from this thread...   let the butthurtin’ begin!!

member squiggy => 2119 weaselly dumb tags applied

Imagine caring this much about not only this forum itself but also the silly little post labels it has. Hilarious.
