You are reading page 7 of When posters attack. If you want to start from the beginning Go to First Page.

I use the button to indicate agreement/approval etc - or is it ect? ;) - with an idea or sentiment.

. . . .I don't remember every hurtful thing, but I vividly recall (and occasionally revisit) one particular thread where I was attacked by an idiot. I was so angry at the time, stepped back before responding, and seriously considered creating a second account so I could flame the OP in my own defence!

:lol2: I'm sitting here cracking up at this stuff. Though it fills me with shame, I must admit I once removed a kudo when I saw it was someone who was meeeeeeaaaannn to me, and I didn't want, at that point to offer the détente kudo, or the olive branch kudo. Those moods never last too long, though.

This reminds me of the funny stories my son told when he worked as a grocery store checker in '05 during the Katrina aftermath. Everyone put money in the Katrina donation can. Of course! But as the acute phase dwindled, they put back the Muscular Dystrophy can or the breast cancer can. . .he told me he watched as a whole parade of people would literally yank their hands back when they saw it was no longer the Katrina can. Oh come on! You really couldn't just say "oh well" and put your measly dollar bill in anyway?

I can't think of a time where I've withdrawn my kudos because of the poster, but I have changed when I clicked "kudos" midway through the post and then finished reading: "Yes, absolutely, kudo- wait, you're saying what now? No, no! If only you'd stopped at paragraph one!"

I've done that! I'm like, "Duuuuuude...you had me, but then you lost me."

Does anybody else just give the kudos without seeing who posted it? I do - I usually look at the name afterwards, but it's not part of why I give someone kudos..... I do have a bunch of people who I generally agree with, and like to see what they say....and others I have fun with on 'fun' threads- and sort of feel like I have a better idea of where they're coming from.... but if I agree with someone, I really don't pay that much attention to who it is- it doesn't stop me cold and "withdraw" my kudos. :)

There is another Cdn. poster who works for the same health authority as me. We happen to agree on a lot of issues. Maybe it's because we work for the same authority, we're of a similar age, or we are just plain old speak your mind types. So we do tend to kudo each other.

We've been accused of being trolls and the same poster by a new poster who just wasn't getting the answers she wanted.

I just want assure everyone I only have one account and now, I'm going to clip clop off and hide under my bridge.

I have to admit that I sometimes compare how many kudos others people have, which is usually more than mine - damn you, xtxrn, you've been here five minutes and everyone loves your posts! And if I'm feeling particularly tortured I wonder how many more I'd have if there'd be a kudos button when I first joined ;)

Ahhh...kudo wars. I've seen online communities where kudo options were recently added, and people's feelings were really hurt. Some admins even removed them because it just got out of hand.

Ravelry has lots of buttons. "Disagree" has caused some amazing threads, boy!

I'm on Ravelry, too. Who woulda thought a knitting and crocheting community could be so harsh at times? :lol2:

I'm torn between delight at the prospect of a dislike button and fear that I'd end up with more of them than kudos. And imagine the outcry - proof at least that we eat our young!
