    The random hater thumbs down is weird though. I never understand how some people thumbs down a normally benign post without any reference to it. To me, if you say something that makes me want to thumbs you down Im going to dispute with you why I think it deserved that.
    IMO that is how it's supposed to work. However, since there aren't any hard set rules about using any of the features we have available, It's like anything else, some people are bothered, others aren't, If you or anyone else thinks they are being harassed, then report the post, give us an explanation and we'll take it from there.

    Another POV

    Thumbs down should, IMO, be utilized when a member disagrees with a stated opinion of another; unfortunately it's too frequently used to voice disapproval of a news event that may not please everyone - especially those with an agenda. I alway SMH when our official "Newshound" posts timely news or professional level fin-centric insight which may be positive to the club and has nothing to do with his own opinion or sentiments, but nevertheless "earns" a thumbs down.

    Personally I use the downturned thumb to editorially comment on consistently predictable posts or opinions from members who have routinely demonstrated a not so subtle single-minded agenda, negativity, or axes to grind. So far I have mostly withstood the urge to negatively rep, but frankly my resolve is wavering and an ultimate resulting "pink-out" sometimes appears justifiably welcome.

    We don't have a problem with people using the "No Thanks" button, we wouldn't provided it if we did. The problem we have noticed and received complaints about are people abusing the system and giving "No Thanks" just because they don't like the poster. In fact, there have been a few times even I was targeted just because a certain person doesn't care for me for whatever reason. I once had a poster give me over 20 "No Thanks" in less than 10 minutes and this individual actually went back and "No Thanked" posts that were weeks old. Those are the kind of situations we are talking about that are unacceptable and really just childish.

    If you don't agree with something a poster writes, click the "No Thanks" button. If you like what they posted click the "Thanks" button. But please act mature and don't stalk, harass or abuse the system. I myself use the "No Thanks" button, but I don't abuse it, and for every 6 "No Thanks" I give out, I give out 100 "Thanks".

    Yeah I hate it when I get no thanks because someone doesn't agree with my opinion on something menial. Do I really deserve a no thanks because I say tannehill could be as good as Brady? Like the no thanker actually knows for a fact that it could never happen. I get it for stupid posts about lets go grab Aaron Hernandez or tebow or something, but just because you disagree with someone should not hurt their overall Rep on this site. I mean what if life was like that? Where everyone's opinion on you weighed equally. Some bum off the streets could impact your life heavily with a few words. Stupid. There should only be no thanks on op's for posting stupid threads, not because you think that ellerbe is better than dansby.

    I don't mind getting a No Thanks for a controversial post but If the OP is just relaying information such as posting an article or Dolphin related video it seems inappropriate to shoot the messenger ... just ignore the post if it's not something you are interested in.

    I don't think it's a big problem because the staff is usually on top of it if there is stalking involved. ( see slickrickpuppy )

When there are two sides to an arguement "does Ireland suck, or is he doing a great job, for example, fans who get to the arguement late don't have time to disagree with every single statement. It is much easier to just give a thanks to the ones you agree with and a no thanks to the ones you think are dead wrong.

    I guess if there is something that isn't cut and dried, they could use a reason, but they are few a far between. Most post are obvious as to why they are getting a response, IMO...
    Thanks for the no thanks. I never said explain it, I just said give it some more thought before using the features. Have a great day.

    Thanks to Like2God for the great Avatar/Sig!

    Because training camp hasn't started yet. Got to do something.

    Every time I see a stupid post I remind myself we don't have this guy as a fan

    For me, a Miami Dolphins Forum is a place for discussion and debate on our team. That's the reason I'm here, and enjoy posting. The thanks/no thanks is kinda like the surveys used by ESPN, etc, and not a bad thing in that usage.

    I remember putting up a very controversial thread a while back. I think Bill posted that it may have set a record for being the most disliked ever. Readers came out of the woodwork to join in, and add their dislike, not a bad thing, as they were doing more than reading.

    Then, there are dislike"s on messengers, which was mentioned, and makes no sense at all. It's not a big deal IMO but, sometimes I would like to see a dislike turned into a post for discussion and debate, as opposed to clicking on a survey.
