And bias can cause error.


C'mon Ewok!? You've had a few ATS applause and I've sent some your way myself so you know I'm not someone who's against your posts.

BUT with the 'bias can cause error' line, it's like you're wanting a scrutiny committee to rule out the 'bias.'

Step it down my English brother and admit your idea creates more problems than it solves.


Hell of answer that deserves an applause *MODS* APPLAUSE NOTIFICATION

Are single sentence responses a 'bad thing' and contain 'little substance' ?



Not always but it depends on what is said.

Eg your would be fine as it asks a valid question in my opinion.


Lol, you mean it depends on who said it.

Kinda still laughing about the beautiful and elegant quote.

Dude, get out of your basement.
I'm glad I could give you something to brighten your day!

Also, I live in a Tokyo Apartment complex, not a basement.
And I'm not a dude.

But you still get a participation award! I DO think it's beautiful and elegant. You are of course entitled to see it differently. We are different people with differing opinions, that's why ATS is such a wonderful place. Truly a boiling pot for all sorts of ideologies and opinions. Stay true to yourself.

I would suggest you brush up on your reading skills.

Notice the word what its a word that is different from the word who.


And I stand by that.

It depends on WHAT not who.

Big difference.

Sometimes I might star a post just to give some support to some beleagured member who is just about holding their own in a thread full of people who are trying to shout them down - I don't need to derail a thread any further by speaking up for that member or complaining about the antics of the others. A star is just a small encouragement for someone who is doing their best to fight their corner.



Not saying that all who oppose crazyewok in this thread are up to "antics" but that's exactly what's happening here. If I ever get into a war where it seems I'm fighting at least 80% of those who disagree with my stance in a thread, I may just have to wave the white flag (although you won't get a genuine admission from me on that
) because I'll run out of patience.

I too would star a poster in this instance just for putting up a fight by trying to counter multiple posts/members.

Now the question is, is there a better way to address the issues my ideas were attempting to address? IE Posts with little substance or there to just bait?


Nope! In a summer meadow, there will always be more grass and cow turds than beautiful flowers. Same goes for forums imo. Can we have beautiful flowers without the grasses and turds? Imagine these words being said in the voice of Bruce Lee lol

What's a before/after count?


Whenever I alerted a good post for an applause, I never checked the member's stats to see if they got one. This meant I was never disappointed or got a big ego from the suggestion.

wok..


What good would it do?

I star people who I disagree with and argue with all the time if they make a good well thought out reply/point even if it's contrary to my own argument.

Doesn't mean I support this, that or the other....

Although I can see more flaws that positives now (which was the point of the discussion)

I don't see how transparency is fascist.

A bad idea is not always fascist, a bad Idea can just be that......a bad idea.

Ahhh definitely, thanks for the clarification.

Something so profound could easily have come from him.

You are right, and you're also some kind-hearted sort of tank for standing around and fielding all of this teasing.

I only see the fascistic quality of your idea because I myself am a big 'ol fascist.

It's the "Ve vill find out who is starring zeese posts und hold them accountable for their starring", part that got my attention.

You're a good one crazyewok.

Wish we had a game that involved all of the paranoia and angst that we throw at ATS and each other when we get bored that we could play together.

Was that weirdly recursive, or is it just me?

A bad idea is only a bad idea if someone implimentd it.

Hence why you discuss it and vet it
