How about, when you have absolutely nothing to say, and nothing to offer, you stick your + whatevers straight up your you know whats, and keep your fingers off your keyboard. Most of the problems encountered in these forums are propagated by morons that have nothing to offer except attitude. It sure would be nice to see people actually trying to help in the forums, as opposed to viewing the worthless posts of knuckle headed narcissists that offer nothing other than positive digits. My middle finger is a digit, and I think in this case, offering it up is worth way more than any plus 1K you can think of.

Is it really so difficult to be helpful?

I assume a thread you posted in recently didn't get the kind of replies you were looking for?

Bob, you told me about 5 years ago to always keep the MM forums in perspective and never take anything you see or hear here seriously.  That's been hard to do because there are some really serious fucking idiots here who don't care who or what they harm, but I've still managed to laugh off pretty much everyone..... I highly recommend you remember that advice and do the same for your own sanity's sake.... cause nothing's going to change.

I just saw a + reply in digital from one of the most derisive idiots these forums have ever had the misfortune to experience.  It pissed me off.

When I post, I kinda like the "+1" replies.  It shows some support for the points I made.

I like the "+1"
It allows me and others to say "I concur" in
a succinct manner, allows the reader of the
thread to figure out where the bulk of the
opinion is. I think they are definitively beneficial
and I love using them and seeing them around. :-)

Being helpful requires some or all of the traits of knowledge, intelligence, eloquence, and relevance, so yes, it can be difficult.

EDIT: This is why I stick to OT and SF2. I know my limits.
