  • Hey "One-Star Rating/Insulting Tags" guy....

    Why don't you stand up and say what you mean about off topic threads and posts you don't like IN THE THREADS, instead of hiding behind the anonymity of your stupid one star ratings and ridiculous tags?

    A man posted about his family's loss, as one would tell friends and family in person, or over the phone. Denigrating that was in unbelieveably bad taste.

    You're a tool, whoever you are....

        I gave this thread 1 star just as a joke. But yeah I saw the 1 star on the family death thread and then that made me decide to read it because I didn't understand why someone gave it 1 star. I didn't see anything 1 star worthy, like a "sykee"??

        What are tags by the way?

          I pity the person who would have that kind of mindset - what a shallow, self absorbed existence he or she must have.

          Before getting too worked up about it, it could have been a mistake. And if it was, the person who made it should fess up to end the controversy.

            I have no idea what this thread is about but I can guess, Im glad the post was deleted because I seem to have a very low tolerence for BS when it comes at the expense of others especialy someone who is going through a tragity such as this, my thought would have probably gotten me banned.

              I get tired of it too-

              Irregardless of whether someone finds a thread OT or not, it usually says "OT:", and you don't have to read it.

              Just pass it over and get off your high-horse that makes you only care about the typical subject matter and not about your fellow posters. We've always been more of a family here on this forum, and used to post repetitively in string sessions of rampant conversation about topics not always related to technology.

              One-star guy should state his point instead of hiding behind a rating system, and then just grow up and get over it. There's more to life than forums, and there's more to people than just on-topic converstion.

              Oh- and we don't need to segregate OT: stuff into another forum, and I'm betting that this is the point that guy is trying to make- badly. Suck it up and allow us to be human, within this TT forum as it's always been.

              It's not really worth your time...

                  There was no posting. Someone tagged the loss-thread with 'inappropriate', and rated it one-star.

                  Not very nice if you ask me.

                    The 1-star rating is just a plain nuisance. Nothing really amusing about it.

                    But I gotta admit that thread with the tags "alzheimers," "man love," "fishing," and "dewardlikeslinkwitzalot!" had me laughing so hard all day.
                    Isn't it about time we started answering rhetorical questions?

                      Regarding the 1 star: All I can say is that is sad. When I saw it I was really surprised. Gotta wonder why anyone would care to do it. People are people I guess.

                      I think some of the tags have actually been in good taste and humorous. Others, less so.

                        Preach it Mark !!!! Couldn't agree more. I can not understand why this person (and I use the term loosely) feels the need to do this. As long I have been tooling around this forum, I can not remember any thread deserving of a 1 star rating. Its pointless, ridiculous, and just plain immature. Whoever it is, please just go away

                          That's not cool ... I'm sure the Mods can see who is doing the tagging and voting. I say see who's doing it, then break up the Ban Hammer!

                            I agree with you there just making the information on who's creating the tags public knowledge would go a long way towards getting that behavior to stop. I think once people realized they'd be held accountable they'd attempt to avoid alienating the majority of the people here via tags and voting.

                              Why even have a star rating system anyway? Or at least have only a high rating choice. And tags could be assigned by mods only.
