We'd get blocked in schools and libraries.
Perhaps if we then simply banned the 93% of Useless Posters and Posts?

Maybe start a cruise?

After one of our cruises, 93% of people will ask...no, demand to get banned. That is assuming they didn't jump overboard.

I'm waiting to see what the "Thanks" option becomes, but yes please get rid of the Kool Kidz stars :P
"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

The thanks button is fine but not necessary. Keep it, lose it, its all the same to me.

Just a note that not only does it suck, a long 'thanks from' list breaks the width in Rainbow Pearl.

I've turned certain options off until such time as I can remove everything and restore the files to their previous state.

Shit happens. The older you get, the more often shit happens. So you have to try not to give a shit even when you do. Because, if you give too many shits, you've created your own shit creek and there's no way out other than swimming through the shit. Oh, and fuck.

As of this posting, the button is there, but the 'thanks' goes into the bit bucket. :)

I want to know which wankers thanked me. I can click on the number of thanks and see the posts I was thanked for, but I can't see who thanked me.

I need to know who they are so I can hunt down and kill the fuckers.
