    Respect in GIM? It could help to encourage poster's to improve the quality of their posts, and to discourage hostility in replies. I respectfully think it is worth a try. :s9:

    Snip from: Could a “Respect” Button Help Squash Internet Trolls?

    Not a bad idea, and makes a certain amount of sense - mostly because many people are poor communicators and don't have the vocabulary or wherewithal to compliment their adversary on occasion. A 'respect' button just provides a shortcut.

    But with GIM, I always figure if it ain't broke dont fix it.

    Do we have a problem with hostility? Trolls?

    I am certain we do not have enough snarky one-liners.

    A respect button? What a stupid f*cking idea. You're an absolute idiot for suggesting it. Get the f*ck out of here.

    Yes, that was sarcasm.

    we have a respect button....."ignore"

    i will NEVER EVER vote for more moderation.....

    moderation is like government once they get started they never go back...

    while i absolutely deplore some of the posters comments they certainly let you know where that particular poster is coming from ........i do as an adult have the privilage to #1..not read...#2 use the ignore feature...#3 choose another forum....


    YES i agree some posters need to grow up and share their world with others but idiots exist in all of our lives so i say DEAL WITH IT

    Of course respect is earned, but that's not what the OP was suggesting.
    He was talking about a way to give respect not to receive it.

    Typos are one thing, but someone who doesn't know the difference between their, they're and there will not get my respect. I can't help it. It really is like fingernails on a chalkboard for me. But unless I can't understand a poster's meaning I would never call them on it.

    But deep down inside, I know it's the difference between knowing their shit and knowing they're shit.

    I'll take an illiterate mountain man over some smart ass grammar nazi any day. The mountain man knows how to survive, the grammar nazi pumps him/herself up to give meaning to their useless life and thats about it. This entitlement mentality kills me. Seven billion people on this world and we elevate ourselves by our spelling ability, sheeesh. Ok you now sit as #4,387,234,112 on the hierarchy chart of importance to mankind.......

    Firstly, Malus, the MtMan is not illiterate and secondly, grammar is indeed
    an important communication skill, whether you wish to accept it or not.

    Ok, now back to your MTV and BET..:Sorry:, to interrupt your viewing pleasure.
