Was unaware of the thanks button....huh.


Seems benign. Now, if it sent me an email every time someone clicked it...well...then I would be hunting down the Admin and convincing he/she/it otherwise....but as such...meh.

I kinda like the Meh button idea.

Maybe it would ignore one specific post. just the one you Meh'd.

Hrm. Course my knowledge of how to code that is right up there with my knowledge of Synchronized Swimming and Mating Habits of Wombats.

I was wrong.

The thanks button is cool.

robinson: You can also use it sarcastically as a fuck you button. That's what's so cool about it. 8)

No real need for a 'Fuck You' button.

Just fuck you.
