    Hah! Well knowing that many of the posters here are male, and what the average age is of many of those posters, I'd say that I'd have to agree with you there... ;)

    Two months ago CNN aired a documentary of Jim Jones and Jones town. There, the REAL Kool-Aid was drunk. Because I watched it, does that make me a homer?

    Yeah, specifically on game days. I don't know if it's coincidence but recently I've been getting the Error 522 messages right when something bad happens to us. I'll chalk it up to the trolls from other teams logging on trying to rub it in. There seems to be a lot more on site lately. lol

    I think most of the time, people are vocal about why. But honestly, some posts don't deserve the time or energy. Like those calling for keeping Cassel over Brady. I don't owe anyone an explanation when they go full ******.

    I think Ian might have it under control now, but I do think a single account shouldn't have the ability to ding/damage another poster's rating multiple times in a short period.

    1 negative rating per account per x hours.

    Also, maybe new posters negative ratings don't count at all until they have a certain amount of Positive ratings/feedback or post count.

    I like this idea. Also, this place is really like any other community. Everyone is generally pretty cool to eachother with the exception of a few minges who like to act mingey. The one thing I would change is enabling the passive aggressive negging that happens here with people throwing out arbitrary disagrees and dislikes. I think it's not that the rating annoys people as much as it is the concept of some neckbeard expressing their disapproval through a mouse click.

    There's a lot of opportunity for misinterpretation. If I "dislike" a post that says, "Edelman won't be ready for the first playoff game" what message do I intend to deliver? I can see four options:
    1. I don't like the poster for saying this.
    2. That I think the comment is destructive or distracting to the thread conversation.
    3. That I do think Edelman will be ready for the first game. (The poster is wrong.)
    4. That I am disappointed that he won't be ready. (Whether I agree or disagree is not at issue.)
    Which of those messages did I intend to convey? And, regardless of my intent, which did the poster interpret as my intent?

    Why would anyone care about dislikes?

    I don't know. And in a way, I don't care. They're internet points. 100 likes + $7 gets you a coffee at Starbucks.

    Although I'd hope people would use disagree for option 3. But as for the rest, I have no idea why some posters do the things they do. Experienced psychiatrists can't explain half this ****ing ****.

    But if I see **** like, "WE SHOULD DO THIS THING THAT THE (INSERT JETS/LIONS/BROWNS) DID WHICH IS AWESOME!!!11," then it gets a dislike, no explanation necessary.

    If I really disagree and there's a thoughtful reason for it, I won't bother with the icons, I'll just reply. But if I don't, it's not the end of the world one way or another.

    If it's really a big deal to you, just go through their entire post history and dislike everything back as revenge...I'm just kidding Ian! Seriously guys, don't do that. Bad bad bad.

    One of the forums I follow has a 'core beliefs' thread that summarizes the tribal history for newbies...

    #1a: Everyone here is a member of the Jets Suck Group. There is total agreement here that the Jets Suck.

    Doubly true when posting to the annual Jets Suck Threads.

    Ok, what's the difference between a Negative Nancy and a Chicken Little?

    The main thing they have in common is they listen too much to Boston Sports Talk Radio and that they wear adult diapers (or they damn well aught too, ewww!).

    Alcohol may be involved...

    I'm a simple man, for crying out loud. Do I really need to know what color "cyan" is? ;)

    Oh yeah, welcome to the forum. Good to have you aboard!!!
