    Is me not being permitted to thumb up all my own posts a restriction of my freedom of speech?

    Thanks but you being able to speak on my behalf doesn't address the egregious truncation of my rights.

    I got your six.
    You get mine and we'll call it (mostly) even--- since your opinion is only worth 3/5's, you're really coming out ahead here.

    I feel as if - in a specific way - that my ability to act anonymously with regard to myself has been silenced on this thread ~ at least in so far as support for my OP is reflected in the number of thumbs up it has received. .

    In order to make my voice heard, I actually do have to make it heard, and cannot use it silently ~ other than to literally say nothing. This isn't how free speech is supposed to be.

    Why don't you start a religion, enforce some strick hierarchical thought and behaviour control then get the more gullible members to make oleaginous replies to your posts.

    Well I've been "self-medicating" and doing self-examinations all my life. And, I would just pull a hamstring if I tried to do it with my big toe.

    There is no thumbs sideways.

    In reality, this thing you call freedom is nothing more than an illusion.

    If crabs had thumbs they could use "Blue" soap.
