PostSubject: "Negative Votes"   Mon Dec 07, 2015 1:01 pm

Just noticed I have one.

Funny and odd to me, as I cannot imagine what I have posted that urinated off anyone here.  

I have always also thought such things cowardly unless accompanied by a PM or comment by the offended party.  Maybe I just missed it.

Oh well.  I'll just have to drown my sorrow with a finger (or two) of bourbon.  Wink

'Til that kicks in, I suppose I'll wallow in self pity.  I'm pouring that now, so that won't last long.  Very Happy

Hey Bill,
Years ago I worked out if people talk behind your back, or maybe a negative strike on your forum that they really don't matter.

I noticed it on my posts before too. I just figure somebody fat-fingered reaching for the quote or + button. Anyway, life is too short to sweat this kind of stuff. Enjoy your bourbon and think about spring. Thumbs Up

I would guess it was a mistake. It was probably someone trying to change the font size, move up and down the page or their cat stepped on the keyboard. I've spent way, way too much time looking at motorcycle forums over the past few years and have no earthly idea why there are votes for posts.

All good counsel. Thanks.

I'm over it now ... and only half through my bourbon. Very Happy

Maybe, Bill, you need the whole bottle - at least that way you will have forgotten the original sin and moved on somewhat!

Else you can -ve vote everyone who posts here and you will most likely get 'em back...

Go ahead make your day - we don't care (well we do really, but we won't admit it)

Hey Bill, just gave you a + to counter that negative shit Thumbs Up

I agree it was probably a clumbsy finger by some one thats more use to wrenching than typing, I usually post on a small tablet and keep hitting the button that has me watching posts that I hadn't intended to!

I'll join you with a whiskey from this side of the pond, Slainte!! Very Happy

The mention of bourbon in this thread requires a + cred for you Bill.

Done!

I'd never actually realised what the + and - were there for! I probably hit them all the time by mistake! Just blame me! Very Happy

Why, thank you.   Very Happy

Born in Germany, I ended up spending my school years in, for the most part, Kentucky.  I thus acquired a provincial's love of bourbon.

Later, I came to realize that the most complex bourbons -- even the boutiquey and (blech) "flavored" brands that flood the market today -- simply cannot compete with the complexity of even middle-tier single-malt scotches.

All of that said -- and likely flowing from my rural and small-town childhood in Kentucky -- I still enjoy bourbon. Lots.

I have, however, also found myself gravitating to those with the lower proofs, i.e., in the "80's."

My latest "rut" is Basil Hayden.  First bought it because I liked the name, a really rotten reason to buy anything or bet on horses, etc.

The original Basil Hayden led my Irish-American ancestors in the late 18th century from Maryland to Kentucky in the "Great Catholic Migration."  But, hey, it was a reason.  

But, while hardly a premium bourbon, it is my "better" bourbon of choice right now.  My "daily" bourbon, tho I don't do that for all sorts of reasons (including supervision queen ), is the much less expensive, tho I think quite decent, Evan Williams "1783."  The effete bourbon aficionados likely roll their eyes at such swill, but I find it fine.

OK, that's what feeling sorry for myself about a negative vote and having a sip or three of Kentucky (I rarely drink "foreign" bourbons, e.g., from Tenneessee Wink ) bourbon will do for me.

Good night to all.

Bill

P.S. Just read Pete's.  I have no doubt that is the root cause of all of this!  Very Happy

Six months ago we had a troll on here sounding off at Beetle and Roper for ripping off the planet with their "snake oil" tuning fixit whotze.

If anybody disagreed with him he would give them a negative (-). I just added him to my ignore list so anything the troll said wouldn't be visible on my screen, but I still gave him shit and massive neg cred.

I haven't given any one a "neggie" but I would use it like the opposite of the proverbial "like" button from facebook.

Say for example you post something condemning cafe bikes....
I would give you the board equivalent of a raspberry.

Which kind of brings me to my basic perception of a bike board - it's the online equivalent of hanging out in a pub with your riding buddies.
Expect me to give you some good natured shit.

You just reminded me of the movie Mad Max.
Toe Cutters gang roll into town and a couple of the guys start in on each other saying
"Push Me"
"Shove You"
Then they tumble through a window.

Have another couple of 'Negs' Bill, just to keep you on your toes !
I think I've done this in the past by accident - just did it deliberately for grins, and I've seen that screen before...
The whole '-/+' thing seems Juvenile - a bit like Farcebook....

For what it's worth, this is how you earn ghetto cred™. It was an available feature in the forum software so I stuck it in here. For the most part it has been used to recognize the efforts of members who give good advice, tell good jokes, share good ideas etc.

By and large, any negative votes are more often than not inadvertent. Nothing to worry about really. There're no prizes or penalties.

Well, am alive again and no hangover.  

I just reread all of this thread.  As evidence of how those votes can surely be accidental, I just realized HOW to vote, as, doh, had not even seen the +/- and wondered where they were.  Pathetic.  Embarassed

So, as penance for even starting this thread, I went back and thanked everyone with a +, even those who raised my negative count to 4.  Shocked  Sad

Now, I've had coffee and am steeling myself to be a good husband to Kathi queen , who is all excited about putting up Christmas decorations.  I am not.  As it's likely just more penance, I'll just do my duty with as much good humor as I can muster.  Wink

Always another bottle of your favourite tipple at the end, Bill. Keep smiling, small penance indeed for the wins later.

Oh, and another + for being honest...

The word 'tipple' invokes thoughts of my favourite nightcap, either a vintage Port of Grand Tokay. Perhaps a liqueur Muscat. +1 Tony.

Not sure.

Made me ready to find some. Hmmmmm. OK, suppose that, too, is arguably both ridiculous and self indulgent. At my age, I am comfortable with that.

Besides, I was a very good boy in decorating cheerfully. "She" queen is pleased. Which means, naturally, so am I. Wink

Ciao for the evening.

Bill
